water used in syringes
    #3372832 - 11/17/04 05:55 AM (13 years, 6 months ago)

i'm sorry this question has already been posted hundreds of times but i can't find the thread. do you sterilize the water you'll use for making syringes? some say that water i can drink is allright for syringes too but i think that it might be full of bacteria, so maybe i have to boil it for a while, at least. somebody puts syringes full of water in the pc but i think it might be overkill, moreover syringes come out of their pack already sterilized, the only issue is water so... can i just have it boiled or i must use PC?

You can boil it for a hour or so. (10 min is probably fine but I believe in overkill).
I myself add the water to the syringe first then pit them in the pc (needles have to face up) and pc them with the water in em. Takes care of the syringe and water at one time. Comes in handy when using the syringes more then once.

thank you, i will use new (=already sterile) syringes, boiled water and oven tek+alcohol lamp. just another question: when you scrape the spores into the shot glass, the tek indicated by anno suggests to use a dry shot glass (and add water later), while other teks suggest to drop spores directly in water. which method has more chances of success, if used within the oven-tek environment?

The only water you want in the shot glass is the water you boiled and put in the syringes add the spores and suck em up.
