re-using syringe needles
    #905693 - 09/24/02 09:38 PM (16 years, 2 months ago)

I know you can re-use a syringe if you steralize it, but can you also re-use the needle (sharp)?

Or would you be better of just buying a new sharp?

I never reuse needles. For the few cents that they cost, its better to use new ones.

Its kinda like working on a car, its ok to get used alternators and generators, but when it comes to belts and hoses, always use new ones.

I agree with Max, if you can go to walmart, they are only a few cents...

I have used the same needle to innoculate like 12 jars. So far I only lost one to contamination. For a first timer that isnt too bad. I steralize the needle with an alcohol flame (lighters leave soot and shit). Worked for me. I guess i am just a lazy ass.
