Call them and ask


--------------------
You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity. What one person receives without working for another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for that my dear friend is the beginning of the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it. ~ Adrian Rogers

yeah that kit comes with agar the directions are terrable they leave a lot out i tried it and couldent get it to work i got it and had no idea what i was doing they dont even tell you to let it colonize in the dark i had a huge contam prob and it sucked but they give you a spore print not a whole one looks like they cut part of one off i just used the spores and did it pf style made a syringe from the print and went from there so be careful when you use your print on the kit not to contaminate it. i made like 3 syringes from it and had no prob mine was amazon cubies

I've never made a syringe from print. What's your method. Also, how would you make sporesyringes from agar? What kind of syringe?

Making a viable syringe is an important step. As long as your print is clean, a single print can give you a massive supply of innoculant. My method is this...

I first prepare the environment, turn off the furnace, close the windows and spray a light misting of lysol in the air/room an hour before I start and have all my supplies in the room before hand.
I sterilize/boil some distilled water and fill my 10cc syringes let them cool then store them in freezer bags till needed. I use a martini glass that I wipe with 99% rubbing alcohol on a cotton ball then flame the glass. After several minutes I then scrape the spores from a print, using a sterile disposable scalpel into the martini glass, add about 5cc's of the sterile syringe water to the glass, mix it with the syringe tip or scalpel and draw it back up into the syringe.
If the print is very small or light, I wait 24 hrs then use the syringe to inocculate a liquid malt culture. using 1cc/250ml of liquid culture.

Works for me ;-)
