problems controling spore solution

If you are trying to inject spore solution into a substrate and you press and press and nothing will come out until finally bam 2cc's shot down the syringe

(i had this problem as a newbie and it happens all the time but no one says any thing about it so to let others no they are not he only idiots out there it has happened to here is my view on it).

When this happens and it is impossible to dispense only a few drops it is probably due to you not removing the excess air from the syringe. when there is an air pocket in the syringe and you apply pressure to it the air is compressed until the pressure inside the syringe exceeds the static friction of the gaskets in the syringe thus pushing the solution out and once this is over come the kinetic friction of the gaskets is less than that of the static so the pressure is relieved until it meets equal pressures on the inside and out side of the syringe thus more solution is pushed until equlibrium between inside and outside pressures otained even if you have stop pressing on the syringe

to correct this hold th syringe needle up and tap all the air including any little bubbles to the top of the needle, then while continuing to tap or thump the syringe/needle press the syringe until all the air and a drop or two come out of the needle all while the needle is pointing up
just like the doctors do on TV when they thump the needle and squirt out some of what ever is in the syringe before they give a shot to someone.

Good Post!.. Especially for those of you who are using BRF/VERM... This will come in real handy if you have those syringes that are cut at a 45 degree angel at the tip
