Mail Irradiation Update (Good news - for now)
    #544830 - 02/08/02 12:26 PM (16 years, 9 months ago)

I found this link today, that I thought people here might find interesting, given all the talk about sterile spores since 9/11.

Great post.. thanks for the info.
I hope all NJ customers think about this and perhaps give an alternate addy where your order will no go through that NJ facility where they are radiating.

Does anybody know if there's any way to tell if your syringes have been zapped or not? I mean, if you see the little black flecks of clustered spores, is that a good indication that they're still viable? Or will even inactive spores cluster into visible flecks?

Irradiated spore look the same as viable spores.

If you are concerned, you might want to test the spores first before possibly wasting substrate. Testing can be accomplished through agar, or a small ammount of substrate. If you are just testing there isn't even a need for absolute sterility as you would know w/i 4-5 days whether the spores were viable or not.
