CLEAN INOCULATIONS
    #4489263 - 08/03/05 12:39 PM (12 years, 10 months ago)

Assuming your syringes are uncontaminated, as well as the jar & content you are inoculating :rolleyes: :confused:.

It is SIMPLE to INOCULATE cleanly, if you can follow instructions?

Simply use a sterile gauze pad ( medical type @ any drug store by the box for cheap).

Drip some 70% alc on it - until fairly saturated.

Uncap the needle off the syringe & WRAP the saturated pad around it.

Hold the pad in place with 2 fingers.

Place the base of the pad against the hole in the jar lid (which sanitizes the hole & area around it), then push the needle downward - through the pad, into the jar & inject - while still holding the pad in place over the hole.

After completing the injection, withdraw the needle, BACK UP INTO THE ALC saturated PAD.

Set syringe aside.      Tape over the hole.

Proceed to next jar & repeat.

This simple procedure does not allow the needle to come into contact with open air that carries contaminates.

yeah, nice agar. i think there are some that need to pay attention to how they are innc'ing and quit blaming vendors for there contams. sure there can be contam'd syringes from everyone, but when you have a bunch of them of different strains and say they are all contam'd then there obviously is something else wrong. that is just imo though.

peace

Everyone should notice that flaming the needle is left out because its not needed...I only flame needles on syringes I was sent, and then only once, the first time I use it. Otherwise I do as agar explained. I get these alcohol pads at the drug store though, guaze presoaked in alcohol. And I still havnt found 3M tape locally, so I use bandaids.
