jar to jar contamination
    #3426763 - 11/30/04 06:46 AM (13 years, 21 days ago)

During the colonization phase, is it possible for bacterial infection to spread from jar to jar if they are packed closely together?

I believe it would be highly unlikely for one contam to spread from inside of a closed jar to another closed jar. The contamination would be isolated to that single jar, unless all jars or substrate were not sterilized correctly.

there is 3 ways for a jar to get contaminated that i can think of right off the top of my head. not long enough in the pc, sterile procedures, or air born spores. if not pced for long enough and you have a contam in one jar your jars odds are bad. if its in your sterile procedure then hopefully it was some mistake you made and it only happened once. if it was air born then they all have the same odds of being contamed. now from jar to jar i would say yes very easily unless you have a good barrier (tyvek). check your jars closely, you can see a contam early on if you look real close and if you have doubts then isolate.
