Isolating Contam
    #3605916 - 01/10/05 01:01 AM (12 years, 3 months ago)

I have a fully colonized bag of rye and just noticed 3 small areas about the size of pencil erasers of green mold  :frown:. Is there any way to isolate those areas and still case the rest of the myc?

Maybe if I were to cut out an area around the contaminated space and then spray the hell out of the rest with H2O2? At least to kill off any other bacteria and the sort.

Input needed quickly, ready to case if possible. kthx

Spawn an uncontaminated peice of mycelium to more substrate, rather than trying to cut out contamination.

Alright, thats actually sparking my earlier thoughts of what I wanted to do in the first place along with saving this batch. I've wanted to try G2G. Should I do anything to prevent contam from spawned rye to new substrate?

Just cut a peice of as far away from the contam as possible, do a g2g under sterile conditions, should be good.

You said you only saw a couple dots of contam, you should be able to spawn some sterile mycelium off of it.

"trying to save the batch" will most likely end up in failure. Doing a g2g will give you same amount of culture you have now in just a couple days.

Awesome, thanks man. Should I spray the saved piece of mycelium with H2O2 just to be safe?
