Expiration date on Sporeworks' syringes???
    #2263070 - 01/22/04 04:56 PM (12 years, 10 months ago)

Alright...I just got my two syringes in from Sporeworks today...thanks!! One is a Huautla strain and the other is a Mazatapec strain. Which one would you recommend I do first?? I plan on keeping the other in the fridge until I want to make more...probably a couple of weeks after I start the first strain. Also, on the syringes they have a date of 01/04...does that mean it expires then or does that just reference that they were made and shipped in Jan. 2004?? I bought the "special" they had going...their pick of syringes for $7.50 a piece. Let me know what you guys think...this is my first time  :nut:

The number on the syringe will be the day that they were made.. should be good for a few weeks in the fridge

That is when the syringe was made .And your syringes will stay good alot longer than a few weeks,ive used a Syringe from hawk that was almost 2 years old and it worked fine.Just put in ziplock,and keep in something dark(i use a small box,and keep in fridge.Usually they are good for sure for at least 6-12 months if stored right.,and personally i would go with the mazapatec strain first,i grew them my first time and they came out well,with a very low contam rate.Good Luck.

Actually the number reflects the month of manufacture, ie Jan of 04. The lot number tells us more about exactly when the syringe was made.

We've found samples to stay stable for months if properly refridgerated, but most of our Ps. cubensis stock rotates out on such a schedule that you should never receive a product that is "out of date."

Thanks!

psilocyber- how long do you think your spore prints are good for?
do the syringes just go bad or could you get a better chance by injecting a lot. i.e. if i bought one and planned on using it twice with a 1 year wait would i be better to use 1cc first and then 9cc a year later?

In my experience dry mushroom spores stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator work nearly as good as fresh spores 5 years later (the oldest spores I have to test).

One benefit of age is that mushroom spores are more resistant to degradation that many contaminate spores. So a sporeprint can become cleaner in time as contaminates slowly die off. I have read reports in the literature of stored spores of button mushrooms growing after 30 years of refrigeration. So dry spores can potentially last a very long time under the proper conditions.

thats interesting about contaminate spore not lasting as long. i have some old taz spore you donated to ralphster back when he was running the FSR (yep years old!) i got it going about a year ago and am trying it again in some liquid so i'll let you know.
