Check out these syringes! (Pictures)
    #3348908 - 11/11/04 11:07 PM (12 years, 6 months ago)

There are huge clumps of what i assume is spores in these syringes i ordered from the lil guy. I was concerned that when i inoculate, these clumps might not come out? Will they come out - or should i shake them up a lil bit?
The picture isn't that great - but you can make out the Clumps of spores on the top 3 syringes.

shake them up really well before innoculating - don't worry too much if they don't comeout, cause there's lot's of spores elsewhere in the water...

breka up those spores.
simply:

light lighter, insert tip of needle into heart of flame, slowly draw back air through the flame into the needle...this makes it sterile.

It's a good thing. Spores naturally try to clump together in the suspension solution. And since spores are microscopic, if you see something you are actually seeing thousands of spores. Just shake VIGOROUSLY to break up some of the spores from the clump. Oh and props to www.thelittleguy.com for the potent syringes. TLG rocks!

Thanks for the advice everyone - My buddy isn't going to sterilize the needle that way though 4hodmt. He was told that wiping the needle with alcohol before injection was a good enough way to do it. He is also a recovering pyromaniac, so he has to keep his distance from lighters. heehee... j/k

4hodmt was talking about sterilizing the "air" you pull back into the syringe body by sticking the needle in a flame while pulling back the plunger. That way you don't inadvertantly pull any bacteria into the syringe. It's best to use an alcohol flame or a butane lighter for this. As a regular bic lighter sometimes leaves behind that black residue.

Why would i need to pull air into the syringe? I'm pretty sure there is enough air in those syringes for a good shaking. Check out that air bubble. Thanks anyway though - sorry i misunderstood 4hodmt.

Is my buddy waisting his hard earned pimpin hoes money by buying syringes every time. They aren't that bad economically, and he feels safe from contams. - but just how easy is all this making your own syringes non-sence? If someone could explain to me the cost of making 5 or so syringes, and the (relative) simplicity of the process - that person might be saving a hoe or two a slapping this week.

shake, but think about what you are saying, though...

If it went it through the needles, they can come out through the needles. :wink:

lol, a regular bic lighter is a butane lighter.

I use a propane torch. Just set it to an ultra-low setting. No residue, and a canister should last forever(if just doing syringe needles).

Is shaking the syringe before innoculating very important? Yesterday when injecting 5 quart jars with spores, i didn't shake the syringe. This grow is sort of an experiment for me, and i wouldn't be suprised if all 5 jars get contams and are failures (even though i took many steps to assure sterility). Peace

It's very important for PF jars, because you only use 1cc per jar and only .25cc per site. For quart jars where you put 1-2cc in one place, you have a better chance. This is a common rookie and veteran error. The consequences can seem more severe on newbies because that's usually all they have. But it'll probably germinate for you, though. Good luck!

I put about 1.3-1.4cc per quart size jar. Geez i really should read up some more before i attempt a real grow, i bet 6 months ago i was way more informed and retained a lot more mushroom growing knowledge. Ah well, if i wouldn't have used up my sterilized jars, they would have rotted and been thrown in the trash. Best thing i could have done...invitro growing.

Id say making liquid myc culture syringes with agar is better then making spore syringes, magash had a great tek on it. . .
