Can I pressure cook syringes?
    #4554226 - 08/19/05 02:48 AM (11 years, 10 months ago)

I wanted to try out a liquid inoculation tek, for future grows. I cant seem to find a place to sell syringes without a prescription. Can I just pressure cook my old syringes I bought from a spore vendor? Or do they have to be totally sterile on the inside as well?

Thanks.

you can re-use your old syringes....

but you will have to sterilize them.

You can either pressure cook them or follow this method....

1. Fill a cooking pot halfway with tap or distilled water (use distilled water if your tap water contains higher levels of minerals and chemicals).

2. Boil the water in the pot on high for a minimum of ten minutes, this should be adequate to sterilize and cleans the water of all bacteria, viruses, and mold spores.

3. Take your empty syringe and fill it with the boiling water. Allow it to sit for two minutes with the hot water inside. (If your syringe was sterility packaged, skip steps 4 and 5).

4. Purge the hot water from the syringe into a sink, not back into the saucepan.

5. Repeat steps 3 and 4 two or three more times. the last time leave the hot water in the syringe.

6. Place the syringe in a cool draft-free place, preferable in a clean zip-lock bag

7. Allow it to cool for several hours before using.

If I have lots of syringes, I wrap them in tinfoil before pcing, so I can store them clean until I need them

BD syringes yes, they hold up, but the Terumo syringes soften and melt

I buy my syringes  here. This company is based in Florida and I see from your location listed, so are you, which means you would get your syringes the next day after you order. They require no prescription, just a payment :smile: You can also try local feed stores. They sell them with no questions asked.

I grew up on a horse/cow farm, and we get our syringes from feed stores.
