Why sterilize my needle?
    #4696587 - 09/22/05 07:59 PM (11 years, 2 months ago)

OK. I got a bunch of syringes in the mail. Each syringe comes with a needle sealed in a plastic/paper sleeve.

So there's no need to sterilize it right? Sterilizing could just render me more prone to contamination by pointlessly fucking with the already sterileness of it right?

Also, if sterilization is necessary, how come the teks don't tell you to PC the needles? Why bother with making an alcohol burner or using a lighter and getting soot on the needle, when you can just chuck it in teh PC?

Also, all you need is one needle correct? Even though I got a needle for every syringe, I only have to use one right? Or can the needle not be detached from the syringes after they are attached. I doubt that...

Also, how is it that we're able to mail-order syringes? For all the post-office knows that's heroin...

Right. That's what I'm thinking. But teks I've read and posts I've read seem to make a bit of a deal about sterilizing the needle. There's even instructions on how to make an alcohol burner on this site.

Right. But they don't know that and in order for them to find out they'd have to fucking send it to a lab where they'd open the syringes, test the substance, and then finall ship it to me weeks maybe even months (maybe never?) later contaminated and/or dead.

This is obviously not done, they obviously don't check the pacakges (at least the ones of that size...hm) and one could very well send heroin through the mail. I saw a news article a few years ago about a man who ordered pot from Amsterdam through the mail...

You should sterilize after each time you ready to inoculate a different jar with an alcohol wipe. After you take it out of the pack and screw it on there you should sterilize with alcohol because u don't know whats on you hands and flying around in the air.

I sterlize because after each inoculation, you could be contaminating your needle if one of your jars isn't sterile.

i flame after each jar too, but really if u just keep them steril the right way, coolin in a plastic bag w/lysol (very easy) before innocing, then there VERY little chance of cross contams,(and really ive had great success w/out even doin that) ive never had a prob w/that, i think ill just flame once, cuz if u think about it, u flame after each jar, and they turn out all good liek mine usually do, then im obviously doin somethin right and the first one was ok, then the second, and so on... my steril teks arent all that great but ive never had contam yet w/ wbs

You don't have to sterilize new needles.

I never flame a needle...I just wipe it down with alcohol on a cotton ball.

well i like to flame my syringed needle prior to use
b/c flaming does also kill anything INSIDE the syringe such as
possibly contammed air i could have sucked into it when loading it.

by flaming u simply take away the entire guesswork,
but as road says above, just wiping it down works aswell :smile:
peace ohm :mushroom2:

I guess I should also mention that I use a Still Air Box...
so I'm not doing any open air work.

hehehe

but...before I used a Still Air Box...
my contam rate on syringes were very very low.

---

And don't use one needle for different syringes.
Use one needle for each syringe.
Taking a needle off and tranfering it to another syringe is asking for trouble!~
I never take a needle off of a syringe...even when re-using one.
I just sterilize the syringe with the needle still attached.

Oh and a big reason to point out why packages are not likely to be interecepted by the USPS is because its ILLEGAL for them to search your package. So unless the syringe falls out of the box on its own they cant open it.

I only flame sterlize my needle if its been exposed to air prior to opening the protective cover. If i do a large run ill flame the needle every fourth jar or so and keep it sterlie in an alcohol soaked towel. Havent had a jar contam yet from poor sterlization.
