Contaminated Needle?
    #2235906 - 01/12/04 01:59 AM (12 years, 10 months ago)

I have a needle and I am not quite sure if the stuff floating around in there are part of the spores or not. There are small chunks of something floating in with the small spores. The chunks or small flakes, and are a mix light and dark colors. There is no mold, but I am not sure if these flakes should be in there. The strain is Tazmanian. If any of you have any thoughts or guesses I would be glad to hear them.

ummmm is it like tiny bits/flakes of gray/brown/silver stuff?

that could be vermiculite, and might not pose a problem, as long as it's CLEAN!

anyway only spores and water should be in the syringe.

Hard to say. Do a test on a single jar or Karo jar and see how it goes.

If it's from a reputable vendor, you should have no problem getting a replacement. You know the rest.

Maybe hawk eye? but I can't remember. I also cant remember if the flakes were in there to begin with. I was going to use the needle right away but it ended up sitting for a few months before I decided to put it in the fridge were its been ever since.

You have to test the syringe to know if it is ok.
Sometimes, spores can germinate inside the syringe, which is ok, but of course there is the probability of being contamination.
