Latex gloves
    #3602926 - 01/09/05 12:06 PM (13 years, 4 months ago)

I haven't been able to find any sterile latex gloves to prevent contamination when I prepare a substrate and inoculate. Would normal gloves be sufficiently clean to make contamination unlikely? Or should I clean them with alcohol?

You can fine Latex gloves in most superstores in the medicine department, and lots of pharmacy's have them, at least around here. Another option is always ordering them online. But if you must, use cleaning gloves wiped down with alcohol.
