the syringe dilemma
    #630042 - 05/14/02 08:43 AM (16 years, 11 days ago)

After a contamination disaster i had which left me out of spores i got a print from someone. This print was really small and light (at first i didn't even see it) and i decided i would make only one syringe from it.
The syringe is completely clear. There isn't even one spore cluster visible inside the syringe - looks like just plain water.
One syringe usually gets me 4 qt jars of grain inoculated. Now i'm afraid of inoculating that many jars as i don't know if the amount of spores is enough to get them going.
I'm thinking of using the syringe to inoculate only one jar. That way, if i can get it to fully colonize i can use it to inoculate other jars and get some spore prints. On the other hand i'm afraid of doing this because if that jar gets contaminated i lose everything.
What would you do in this situation?
