spore print questions
    #4716683 - 09/26/05 10:10 PM (12 years, 1 day ago)

i made a spore print last week actually two from pink buffalos. just wondering can you tell if a print will be a contam or not?(thinking you really cannot tell until you inoculate and wait for mycelium right?) 2. what is a median of failure prints and for non failures? how often does a failure happen and a non failure?

like everything else i imagine it would depend on how sterile your technique was

It would all depend on the method used to take the print

Use a small amount of spores off of the print to minimize contams.

this seems like an appropriate thread..... so, whats the shelf life of a well stored print?

Like stated previously, it all depends on your technique. You won't really be able to tell just by looking at the print.

What you can do that could help is to either put a small amount of the spores into an LC or on an agar dish and see if it gets contaminated. but even then, if those get contaminated, it could be coming from somewhere else and not necessarily the spores.

So basically it is primarily going to be trial and error.

As long as you are sterile when taking the print and storing of the print, you should be fine.
