Shaking vendor syringes before innoc.
    #3333586 - 11/08/04 04:46 PM (12 years, 3 months ago)

  I used a vendor syringe awhile back to inoculate some grain jars.  THey colonized very slowly, and I was wondering, could this have been because I didn't shake the syringe beforehand?  Does shaking the syringe prior to inoculation affect colonization times?  Thanks! :grin:

it redistributes the spores throughout the suspension so each inoculation contains a more even number of spores
hint-try karo to drastically increase colonization speed
GnuBobo feel free to pm me if you have any questions

Yeah. You are lucky you got growth.  Not shaking the syringe CAN result in no growth. :wink:  Very common rookie mistake and also infrequent but still recurring in experienced hands.
