bacterium survival Q
    #4279398 - 06/10/05 12:13 PM (11 years, 10 months ago)

i do my spore prints on a small piece of hard plastic, then i transfer it carefully over into a plastic bag where i place it in the freezer for around a month till i use it. the last time i did this printing i touched the outside of the plastic piece with my bare hand as i was sticking it in the bag. no doubt that bacteria, either airborne or from my hand got onto the card.

will the bacteria/airborne contams survive a month in the freezer in a nutritionless sealed environment? should i redo my print?

ive heard spores survive best in the fridge, im not sure if that is for prints too but, since no one else in helping i'll just share my opinion :smile:

whats the difference between sweat and spit?
