Contaminated syringes? Too old??
    #800029 - 08/06/02 01:48 PM (16 years, 4 months ago)

Is it possible that old syringes could cause contaminations. They've been used many many times over the course of 9 months. They have been sterilized each time with the boiling water, suck in/squirt out technique. But my friend still thinks they might be bad. Any advice?? Thanks in advance!!!

No. You probably contaminated it when you filled it.

I think it is dead. Syringes usually last only a month at room temperature and 6 months to a year in the fridge. Could be wrong though.

First, he's talking about an empty syringe. Not one filled with spore solution. Second, I have used a syringe that was roughly two years old and it germinated quite well, better than many "fresh" syringes that I've used.

Peace
