Sterilizing Syringes
    #833000 - 08/21/02 12:35 PM (15 years, 8 months ago)

Will soaking syringes in alcohol sterilize them? Would pulling in alcohol inside the syringe cause any problems with the next batch of spore solution?

I wasnt sure if the syringes would be able to hold up to that extreme heat inside PC.

The alcohol will not evaporate inside the syringe, it needs airflow. And the remaining alcohol in the syringe may be harmful to the spors. I would just use boiling water.

My cat stores his used syringes full of alcohol and has never had a syringe contam problem. He just boils some water, sucks up and sprays into the sink three times, then on the final time sucks up a full syringe of alcohol and stores. When it's time to use, he just does the same thing except he keeps the boiled water in the syringe on the third suck.
