Syringe Longevity
    #3990397 - 03/30/05 03:18 PM (12 years, 4 months ago)

An online company just gave me some old syringes as they had already been paid for but were returned after being mailed. The company told me that most of the syringes were between 8-12 months old and some were 6-8 months old. My questions:
-Are these too old to use?
-If they are too old will they contaminate my jars, or will they simply do nothing, allowing my to try a different syringe.
- Will potency suffer?
-Should I refrigerate the syringes?

I received 28 of them, which is more than I can handle, so I think I'm going to experiment, but thought I would get some input first. Thanks.

they should be fine.. the 12 month old ones would be the ones i'd use first. if they've been kept refridgerated, they're probably in good condition.

if you're afraid they're going to contam, then try a test jar first.

they should be perfectly viable and usable though.

They're not too old.  Just keep em in a clean jar or baggie with caps on the needles, and they shouldn't contaminate.

With 28 of them, you should probably refrigerate the ones you won't be using for a while.  However, I leave mine in my closet at room temperature, and they've never failed to work, nor have they contamed, after 8 months.... GL bro :stoned:
