Yep, should be fine, just use the air bubble inside to break up and disperse the spores more evenly. Syringes will last quite a while in the fridge, with germination becoming less and less rapid over time. A syringe that has been in the fridge for more than a year will still work great. Good luck!

I've had a syringe viable after six years in the fridge so you should be fine. As far as breaking up that clump a few sharp raps will do wonders.

Personally I've never stored outside the fridge but I've heard good viability in some cases for up to a year I've also heard lower viability after 6 months either way there is really no set rule here IME. Just keep them stored properly (in the fridge) and you'll be golden. GL

I have had em outside the fridge in 70 degree F. air for 6 months or more and they work. If there is any hint of maybe bacteria in it, start with agar and work up. Ya have to do a bunch of petris to get a good one with something that old. Good practice anyway!
