Sticky spores in syringe?? (HELP)
    #3904446 - 03/11/05 08:38 PM (11 years, 8 months ago)

First time making syringes from a print. Sucked up the spore in sterile water but noticed the spores are all sticking to the sides of the syringe and not suspended throughout the liquid... Is this natural? If not what can i do to remedy the current situation or will it fix itself as the spores resaturate?? Any tips would be much aprreciated.

That's right ^

Next time try one drop of Jet Dry to 100ML water, that will relieve alot of the water tension and the spores shouldn't stick as much.

They'll work, you just need to shake the hell out of them before you inoculate something (having a small air bubble in the syringe helps). And adding the jet dry in the future will make it easier on you with the shaking.

No, they are not junk. Shake the hell out of them before you use them, and when they are empty suck a few cc's of sterile water back in, shake it really good and you'll be able to inoculate a couple more jars with the spores that stayed in the syringe.

Never used jet dry cause i just didnt have it. Whack them against the palm of your hand.

You might have an easier time shaking them up if you draw in some sterile air (e.g. through a small flame) so there's a bubble as someone else mentioned
