mycobag Q's...
    #3720320 - 02/02/05 07:49 PM (12 years, 6 months ago)

If a person was to use mycobags, and needed to sterilize the outside self-sealing disc, would that person be ok using 70% rubbing alcohol?

Should the substrate be broken up before inoculation?

Is flaming the needle really necessary if the needle is still in its sterilized envelope?

thanks!

I never sterilize needles except for scraping spores off of prints, so no there isn't a need. 70% alcohol is preferred, it evaporates slower then 90%, giving you more time to work.

Shake up the substrate after your spores are injected to distribute them.
