Steriling syringes?
    #3119805 - 09/10/04 08:29 PM (13 years, 3 months ago)

I've been trying to find the best way to sterilize my syringes. I was going to try boiling some water and then rinsing with it, but I realized this wouldn't sterilize the needle cover at all so it would be kind of pointless. I was thinking of PCing them, but I'm a lil apprehensive. This'll be the first time I'm actually going to use a PC so i don't know a lot about em. Whats the best way to do this? Thanks.

Burn needle then wipe with alchohol before innoc. I rinse syringe 4 or 5 times with boiling water. Then I put boiling water in and let cool before sucking up spores. Overall the PC is better. Of course you could do both.

the very simple and highly effective way of doing it goes like this:

place empty syringes (with needle guard on) on a sheet of alum foil and wrap it around them tightly

then place that in your pc, best to use a empty jar to keep them up out of the water, get it up to 15 pounds of pressure and cook for 25 min.

take it out and let cool and you are good to go.

you can also toss your syringes in with any jars you happen to be cooking, just set them on top. the added time won't hurt them abit. i have seen syringes be used 100's of times like this with no probs.

Just a sidenote on syringes some brands will do well with repeated autoclaving (B-D) Where as some will not (Terumo).

Well just a note to everyone so maybe you can learn from my errors. I didn't realize the amount of water necessary for the PC and just put a little in the bottom. I PC'd for about 10 min at 15 PSI (once i got it to work right), and the steam stopped coming out because there was no more water inside. I cooled down and added more water after reading up a little more (about an inch). I then proceeded to cook them wait til it heated up again (15 min), put the rocker on, let pressurize, and cook for about 25 min. I let the PC cool and proceeded to boil some distilled water i had for the spore solution. After 10 min of boiling i unwrapped the syringes from the foil and what do ya know- melted all to shit. So now i guess i'm goin down to the needle exchange and maybe a tack/feed store to try to get some more syringes, which is just going to be a bitch. So be forewarned~ use caution if you choose to PC your syringes.

Do you need to use distilled water when making spore syringes? How about liquid myc syringes? Just regular tap water work? Drinking water?
