Sterilization
    #4288697 - 06/12/05 10:19 PM (11 years, 5 months ago)

Can someone give me a tip on how to sterilze my jars better. The syringes are very sterile and I resterilze them before each use. I'v tried boiling a bit and that doesnt work too well. Thanks

you dont need to sterilize them just clean them they will sterilize when you pc them.

inoculate your jars in the updraft of an oven for a better defense against contaminants, wear some sort of germ gaurd over your face. Nuke your work area with lysol or oust prior to inoculation.

don't re-use syringes. syringes and needles are packaged sterile for 1-time use only. always use a pressure cooker to sterilize your jars at 15psi for 1 hour.

sorry. i forget that everyone doesn't have unlimited access to medical supplies. new syringes are just too cheap not to use them.

The oven updraft does not work to well. contaminated 12 of my jars. Best to just spray the shit out of a closed room. and wear clean clothes. Havent had any problems doing that.

now now

some of us do have access to unlimited supplies of syringes...and still reuse old ones several times before throwing them out.

hell I get mine dirt cheap...and locally.

and I still reuse them at least a couple times.

its all about being thrifty.

an autoclave is great. buying syringes would get old quickly. by "unlimited access" i meant that i just lift a box of them from work every now and again. they never miss them and a box is enough to last a good long while. but i think that's awesome that you guys have found viable ways to re-use. in fact disposing of the used ones is more of a problem than obtaining new ones. i'd hate for the garbage man to find medical waste in my can. so i take them back to drop them in a sharps box.
