UV Sterilisation
    #4705824 - 09/24/05 05:03 PM (12 years, 8 months ago)

A question to those more knowledgeable than myself: I was thinking about sterilisation for the various teks, and what a pain it is to everybody. But lately, I've been thinking about using UV rays for sterilisation. I know that UV rays won't penetrate through the PF Jars, so that's out, but agar is transparent to a certain extent, and so is liquid culture (honey teks and the like.) Shouldn't it be possible, given the right equipment to sterilise a transparent or heavily translucent material, like agar and liquid cultures? Please let me know if I'm wrong, otherwise I'll start wasting time with experiments....:rolleyes:  anyway, all feedback is appreciated! thanks all!

Hmmmmm..hard to say. I would think it depends on how the spectrum of the light is changed. Would be great for glove box's and such.

yes it can be done if you have a way to focus and control the light (i.e. a mirror box with a UV light inside). My old school has UV boxes like such to sterilize science equipment. (and i agree, its a hell of a lot easier to flip a switch than to haul out those god damn pc's)

I often come to many challenges and intimidations, but then I remember that you only live life once, one single time through, with no reruns or rehearsals. So just live the way you want and the best you can. Its easy.

A PC is really a pain in the ass to "haul" out. I keep mine on a trailer that I can just back into the large opening in the wall I cut out of my kitchen. Then I hoist it onto the stove with a crane.  On top of that, there are the complicated tasks of putting water in it and UGHHH, turning the knob on the stove :crazy:

Damn crazyness I tell you! :smirk:
