Alcohol and spores
    #2300902 - 02/04/04 03:27 PM (14 years, 4 months ago)

What effect, if any, does 70-91% isopropyl alcohol have on mushroom spores? I was under the impression that alcohol was only effective in killing living cells, not spores or endospores, however, I've had an experience recently that's calling my memory into question.

Alcohol is effective against fungal cells, I think fungal spores are included. As you see though, it is not effective against bacterial endospores.

Thanks for the link. However, it doesn't specify whether or not alcohol will destroy the actual spores. Since endospores aren't affected, I'm inclined to believe it wouldn't harm fungal spores either.

Bacterial endospores are much more resiliant than fungal spores.

I don't recall ever seeing a separation of spores from vegatative fungal cells as far as disinfection.

i looked and looked and finally found this reference to back up your memory and to correct mine:

I think I love you. This document is EXACTLY what I've been searching for.
