syringe use
    #3144278 - 09/16/04 05:23 PM (12 years, 8 months ago)

Greetings:

I am a bit mystified about how to most effectively inoculate the jar using a syringe.

Problem is controlling the flow of liquid from the syringe.

The liquid simply drips out even without use of the stopper and before I know it many cc's have poured out.

I thought of turning the jar upside down to use gravity as a control but that seems silly.

Also, in this respect, it seems prefereable to only use one insertion hole rather then four as the TEK suggests.  At least then I only need to control the flow once per jar.

Has anyone else run up against this or am I somehow uniquely inept?

Also, since I used almost the entire contents of the syringe for four jars i probably dumped about 3ccs of inoculent per jar.  Any harm in over-inoculating with spores?

Thanks much

:eek:

The only problem with injecting too much spore solution is that you may change the water content in the jars (by putting too much in).

As far as the syringe always dripping, where did you get it? The stopper should, well, stop the flow.

No question is so difficult to answer as that to which the answer is obvious.

Thanks foer the response.

got the syringe from sporesource.com.

The descrption is:

"12cc syringe, 18 gauge needle."

should the needle gauge be smaller perhaps?

To inject 1/4 cc per hole seems quite tedious under the circumstances.

One would think that the stopper would halt dripping through vacuum action.  I mean, one single drip equals about 1/4 cc of liquid.

As it is now it's terribly wasteful as I went through an entire syringe on four jars.  :-(

That is definitely an issue with a syringe. You should e-mail the vendor and tell them what happened, because under normal circumstances injecting 1/4 cc isn't tedious as much as slightly time consuming.

Let them know what happened and see what they say.
