syringe re-use tec
    #2536034 - 04/07/04 06:50 PM (14 years, 1 month ago)

i just got a used syringe in the mail, sealed, but with almost no spore content left. im thinking maybe if i take boiling water put it in a shot glass, microwave it, seal it. let it cool, then suck water from the distilled water, do you think that will work?

Boil water
suck into syringe
Let set about 10 min.
Repete 2 more times
Don't discharge water back into boiling water
You now have a syringe with sterilized water
Good Luck

to add to that, most syringes are autoclavable and will withstand pressure cooking. A good setting would be 15psi for about 20 minutes or so.

EDIT: on second read, i think you're trying to get more use out of the SPORES in the used syringe? If so then your method may work, although its more common to use the teks outlined above with a print to make a new syringe. The contamination factor increases with what I think you are attempting but it doesn't sound impossible.

Yes you are correct about diluting a syringe...I get bad contam rates with most purchased syringes except from Ralph and good fast colonization when using my own prints to make my syringes
