Syringe Water Loss
    #588827 - 03/25/02 10:01 AM (14 years, 9 months ago)

I find that when I sterilize my syringes I loose water. I boil them in foil and while I start with 10 cc's, I end up with about 6-8 cc's. Any way to avoid this loss. I know that water seeps into the foil and then raises the temperature of the water in the syringe causing it to boil. This boiling results in H20 bubles inside the syringe and then water loss. I curious to know how you guys sterilize your syringes without this occuring. Is the foil wrapped around the syring suppose to be air tight? Any ideas would be great. L8rs.

Try sterilizing the syringes before filling them.
Just steilize and treat like a new, empty syringe.

i just remove needle,needle cover,and then drop it all into the water-i fill syringe up with water and drop it into the water with the rest like that and boil it-then put gloves on and squirt water out,put needle back on and pull up clean boiled water back up and let it sit for my spores-
i never lose syringes like this

I fill them and then sterilize them (when not new) which empties the water out. I also sterilize some distilled water in a canning jar with a small hole in the lid at the same time to use to refill them when I am done.
