reusing old syringes
    #785520 - 07/30/02 05:11 AM (14 years, 5 months ago)

just wondering if it would be wise to re use an old spore syringe, after sterilizing the tip with heat and the inside with alcohol

If you have access to a pressure cooker or small autoclave, it would be better than the alcohol. Pressurecook the syringes w/o the needles on for 1 hour at 15 psi. Try to get new needle points, if not, submerge the old ones in first H2O2 for an hour, then let them completely dry, then submerge in alcohol for 10 minutes, take out and let dry(do not rub dry or you risk contamination). They should do good then. You can pressure cook them around 4 to 5 times, then the rubber stopper starts to breakdown, and loose suction. bluhoney

or just take the syringe apart (assuming yours is of the type where you can easily remove the plunger) and soak the whole assembly in 70% iso overnight. Make sure the iso evaps before filling them, though

-psyco

P.S: If you can't take the plunger out, you can always suck up iso into the syringe and then submerge, but that seems less thoroughly to me

I do the wrap-in-foil-and-boil thing also and have yet to have problems. I am just a newbie, so this may not count for much.

You can reuse old syringes if you boil a pot of water for 10 minutes on high and then suck up th boiling water and plunge it out of the syringe repeat this 3 times and leave the water in your syringe the last time you do this that way you have sterile water to make your spore syringe with
Also if using a previous spore syringe try to use the same strain as was used before in that syringe. It just semms to be easier for me that way

^^^ what they said ..
boiling works wonder ....

but it would be cheaper for you to send me the old ones and you go out and buy new ones
