Sterilizing by an UV Light ?!
    #3234198 - 10/08/04 08:18 PM (12 years, 1 month ago)

Hi everybody,
i'm new here and i'm just wondering if it could be possible to make any kind of sterilization using an UV neon (Wood's Lamp). It's even used in hospitals for sterilizing surgery tools or whatever, and many hair cutters use it for their scissors and razors. It's used in aquariology to sterilize water nearly 100%, too.
I searched everywhere in the forum but i didn't find any post regarding this argument. I was thinking if it's suitable for sterilizing syringes, tools, or maybe substrates, as it's very quick and so much faster than PC..  :crazy2:

Greets :smile:

PS. Sorry for my poor english, i'm italian..  :smirk:

How could it produce mutants if not exposing spores or mycelium to the UV lights to mutate it? I would sure hope someone wasn't sterilizing a jar with any mushroom material (including spores) in it.

But yeah it wouldnt sterilize substrate to begin with so :smile:
