Got the first spore syringes.... Contamination?!?!
    #3249221 - 10/12/04 10:48 PM (13 years, 2 months ago)

My friend down the road got his first spore syringes. I looked at them, and in two of the four there seem to be black/gray floating masses. These look like little black clouds floating. There is just one in each syringe and they are quite small. He is hoping that this is quite normal and that this is not some type of contamination.

Will someone who has quite a bit of spore/spore syrine experience clue us in to what this is.

My friend is trying to figure out if he needs to get replacements sent out from the vendor.

Guys, gals, seen these little things before?

Is it just a mass of spores that will even out when the syringe is shaken? This is what I'm thinking...

Thanks for the great board!

I'd say it is ok, assuming you got it from a credible source...I'd try it still.

Could it be a spore clump?

Yea its most likely a spore clump, all my syringes that have been sitting around seem to do that, its probably just them all setteling.

sounds like it. is it just a clumpy looking thing? kinda like a dark purple/black colored booger or something?

if it is, it's just a clump of spores. shake that sucker up and inject.

You guys are superb!

Thanks for the quick comeback. I'll get in touch with my friend and calm him down. Man he's a stress case when it comes to his microscopy supplies! Things have got to be just right! :-)

And yes these (syringes) were from a well known, shroomery approved vendor and that's why I told him not to freak until we heard from the board.

Yeah, like everyone else has already said, it's normal.

You'll see this as soon as you examine them under the microscope.
