How long will uncolonized pf cakes last
    #4304327 - 06/16/05 05:38 PM (12 years, 10 months ago)

Yes, I know it says indefinately in some FAQ somewhere but... I have had these cakes in an incubator (testing for contams early in the process) for about 2-3 weeks now and what I am actually worried about is possible loss of water through the 'needle holes' due to evaporation. Should this be a concern? thanks a ton guys.

Yes, water loss is what will determine how long a cake is good for. I store mine at room temp when checking for contams. Have used them 2 months later with no ill effects. I use tyvek so no open holes until inoculating. Being in the heat of your incubator may speed up their water loss.
