Sterilizing (Store-Bought) needles?
    #3348021 - 11/11/04 07:34 PM (12 years, 1 month ago)

My buddy just buys his syringes from shroomery sponsors. The plastic tips are always secured to the syringe incasing the needle. He doesn't remove this tip till its time to inoculate, and has never had any contams. Is it really necessary to flame sterilize the needles if you are just opening them out of the package? I don't know if all the talk about flame sterilizing needles is just because they make their own syringes or what.

it's not 100% necessary but you do increase the risk of contams by not doing it,
I always advise people to sterilize the needle anytime the cover is removed and
between each jar, the first should always be a flame sterilization and after tha
an alcohol soaked cottonball can be used

Does the alcohol kill spores?

Don't grow mushrooms if it is illegal where you live.
