Syringe sterilization
    #4572092 - 08/23/05 08:58 PM (11 years, 3 months ago)

I have a couple of leftover syringes that I would like to sterilize.

Now, I read somewhere that PCing/microwaving BD syringes would melt them... If this is true, how else can I sterilize them?

Do I need to take the needle off and sterilize that seperately? Can I just leave it on?

If I can PC my syringes, how long can I PC them for and at what temp? Should I have them filled up with water?

Thanks.

no, turmero syringes melt in a PC, BD hold up pretty damned well
sterilize them for 20 minutes in the PC and your golden, you can
leave the needle on, I like to wrap syringes in a couple layers of foil

As my pupils fluttered and tried to fly out of my skull I asked myself, "Is THIS what you want?".
Screaming until my lungs bled, I simply replied "No!"

what Ive been doing which seems to work:

1. unscrew the needle and put it in Isopropyl Alcohol

2. Suck up 2 cc's of tap water into the syringe without the needle on it. Extend pluger fully. There should be lots of air in there.

3. place in a baggie in the microwave.

4. microwave for a minute or so(depending on your microwave).

5. screw needle back on flame the metal needle, turn upside down and wash out any acess Alcohol with the 2cc's of now sterile water from the chamber.

This seems to work really great and fast. I've never had a needle melt in the microwave*.

Hope this helps.

you can use 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(leave the needle on) 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 and just suck some sterile water into your syringe).

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 making up your spore syringes...etc.
