Did I Contam. this syringe???
    #4034177 - 04/09/05 02:14 PM (11 years, 10 months ago)

I got a couple of syringes from Spores Direct. One of them must have had 2 cc's pushed out at some point during shipping or at packaging. The syringe had 1 cc floating inside the cap. Without taking the cap off i sucked that cc back into to syringe. Did I just fuck up??

maybe so maybe not. Its hard to say i would not of done that tho. I am not too familiar with thier sterilization procedure but im guess the cap was sterilized atleast some what?.

Maybe try and do a liquid culture with the one questionable syringe and see if it contams before using the entire syringe.

This is the only time I really feel alive.

I agree with Baraka in that situation it is probably best to just cut your losses. However it might do just fine, the syringe caps are sterile until they are removed when the spores get sucked up in to the syringe so you have good odds. You could try the liquid culture. Or if you want to use jars just keep them seperated from the clean stuff. Good Luck :-)

Wait... Am I on Salvia?

if u have the time just test it on a jar(or whatever) first...i do that whenever i think i took a poor print or made a half ass culture...like the others said, there is no way to know for sure until after.
