To refrigerate or not???
    #2975411 - 08/07/04 03:15 PM (12 years, 4 months ago)

My syringes came in today, thank you TLG, but I am not sure and I couldn't find any info on whether or not to refrigerate them. I am going to leave for a few days and I'm concerned whether to put the syringes full of spores inside my refrigerator. I plan to observe them when I get back and I don't want them to die/get infected/fuck up/whatever over the next few days. I guess what I should say is what is the best way to preserve them until I can use them?

Thank You All for the Help,

Murd

IMO, refrigeration is usually for a relatively long term storage, maybe months. If it?s a matter of a few days, keeping them in a dark, not too hot place such as a closet will do the work.
About contamination, keep them in a ziplock back or in the container they arrived and you won?t have problems.

As long as the spores do not get over 106f for a long time your OK

Mycelium yes. Spores no, spores are hardier.
That said, the cooler you keep them, the longer they will last.
