spore syringe longevity
    #4065801 - 04/17/05 05:11 PM (11 years, 7 months ago)

I know this has been covered but many of the posts I've read range between anywhere from 2 months to a year.

I was curious as to what the oldest spore syringe you have used with success.

Also, what precautions should one take to prolong the syringes life?

THAKS!

3 years old and it was fine.

I have one that is almost 4 years old in the frig right now...I'm going to wait another year and knock up one jar with it...then wait another year and do another...and continue til its gone.

HOLY SHIT! 3 years? Wow, I had no idea.

I guess I should reword my question. What are unfavorable conditions which whould cause damage/kill the spores? What temp ranges should they be kept out of. I know the frige if fine, but how about room temp for about a week?

I use black electrical tape around the needle guard and around the plunger base...to prevent any accidental leakage.

I put my syringes in Quart size Ziplock bags and mark what strain is and the date...then put them into larger Ziplock bags together.

I just keep them in one of the drawers in the frig...I use one drawer for mycology.

The girl friend even knows better than to put anything into my mycology drawer in the frig.  :smirk:

:smile:

RK if its a full 10 cc that means the spores could get as old as 15 years before you use them all. wow Hope I'm still around in 15 years.
