Vacutainer tubes on sale for dirt cheap.
    #4289094 - 06/12/05 11:41 PM (11 years, 5 months ago)

For those of you who have left over spore solution and want to store them long term, you may want to invest in some vacutainer tubes. You can inject any spore solution you are not going to be using and place them in the fridge for months.

This website has a box of 100 for $10.70 or a box of 100 with a short-date (means it's about to expire) for $5.35. Great deal for such a large quantity if you ask me. For those of you who have no idea what a vacutainer tube is, here is a picture:

For spore solution storage - you want only those with RED stoppers. That color code is what indicates it has no additives within it. Other color codes indicate they contain several sorts of blood thinner, or coagulant....etc...etc (which are all detrimental to spore - LC - tissue solution storage).

These containers really rock for storing either spores or mycelium-water suspensions. Keep in mind that when you stick your needle in, they will pull the syring fluid completely out almost instantly. I use these to store LC mycelium suspended in water. I draw out about 0.5 ml using a 29-gauge insulin needle/syring (hair-fine needle). I then use one to two drops (about 50-100 ul) to inoculate each agar half pint jar. An agar half pint jar colonizes in about a week from a single drop! From a single 10 ml vacutainer, I can inoculate about a 100-200 agar jars!

The expiration date is totally is irrelevant for the purpose of mushroom spores or mycelium cultures.

The correct CKI number is the 366430 for the red capped tubes. Since the expiration date is irrelevant, you can pick up a box of the almost expired tubes for $5.35.

I ordered them also, but received an email telling me to call in with my credit card information for first time customers. I'll call them in the morning and see what the shipping cost is.

I just got off of the phone with this company, Culture Kits, and the total with shipping is $18.20. This includes 200 short-date vacutainer tubes (red cap) and a shipping cost of $7.50 via UPS Ground.

What a smoking deal! They also have syringes and needles available for fairly cheap. All in all they seem like a good company to do business with. No questions as to why I was purchasing these items either.

That's a damn good price Agar. For those of you who don't want to watch eBay though, their standard price for a box of 100 is only $10.70 everyday.

Good luck everyone and happy shopping.

Agar, how much was the shipping on ebay? I've seen shipping about $30 on stuff that should cost half that to ship. It's often a stricky way vendors make their money.
