Karo as a test for contaminated syringe?
    #2448710 - 03/18/04 09:11 PM (12 years, 11 months ago)

SWIM is wondering if a Karo jar can show contams like a
PF/BRF jar or Agar dish? She thinks cobweb would be a little
difficult to see but trich/black/lipstick etc would show ok.
If you have pix of nasty Karo please post.

Liquid innoculation is very good at hiding contamination. Just because a jar of karo appears clean, there is no definitive answer until it is germinated.

if you have no agar try a few jars with just a small amount of grain/jar mix. if one jar come s good you can use it to innoc another larger jar

Often it is the spores that give mold its color, contams don't usually sporulate in solution. Therefor, it would be hard to identify a contammed solution by color.
