oven sterilization
    #3236458 - 10/09/04 03:10 PM (13 years, 3 months ago)

I read a pdf someone posted in one of these forums, and it mentioned sterilization in the oven...a dry heat sterilization.  I was wondering if anyone has heard about this being a viable alternative to mere boiling, without a PC?
Is there anything preventing one from oven heating for sterilization?
Thanks for all the info.  :grin:

IMO it would cook the substrate dry and/or burn it :smile:

If you don't have a PC, then fractional sterilization is a better process than oven sterilization IMHO.
You can read about fractional sterilization in the faq's. The process can be summarized as boiling the jars several times.
