Syringes leaking on arrival - worry about contamination?
    #3023700 - 08/19/04 03:38 PM (12 years, 3 months ago)

My syringes arrived today and they and the bag that they came in were covered in spore water. This of course means that at least some of the syringes were leaking. Should I worry about contamination getting into the syringes because of this?

Any help is much appreciated.

i don't know for sure but i think the spore water inside of the syringe should be fine. it seems that the water in the bag is no contaminated (but its useless now so that doesn't matter). in my opinion if you sterilized the needle tip with a flame and alcohol you should be fine to innoculate...but wait for another opinion to be safe.

Not neccesarily.

While it's normal for syringes to leak a little bit of fluid into the needle covers, most often wetness in the bag is caused by condensation from when the vendor removes the stored product from the fridge and mails it in the summer heat.

This also is a perfectly normal occurence during the summertime.
