I have heard of people using ozone. One problem, it corrodes everything. We used to use it for our hot tub. And it degraded everything in the room, plastic, wood, styrofoam etc. So only do it if you don't mind things desintegrating. The other problem is that you have to have it running all the time to be effective. You would also most likely have to have a vestibule so that when you entered the room you didn't flood it with contaminants.

A glove box is a hell of a lot cheaper/easier and doesn't require a sterile room.

Eh Pope, that's pretty kewl. Did you have big probs with contams before? I just use a normal box and spray with Lysol and have no contams. I'm interested in the ozone idea though!

Hehe, not really, I just like making cool
things, that and I wanted to start doing
strain selection and didn't trust the cleanest
room in my apartment - a musty closet.
(I cleaned it three times! I swear!)

That..AND, I can be fairly sure of a wonderfully
minimal contamination rate in anything sensitive. (well, contams gained at the time
of innoculation)

You were saying about how the ozone would kill the exposed part of the mycelium? How would you avoid killin all of it? Have you tried it out yet?

I don't think it would be required to run the generator
the whole time anything sensitive is in the box.
Ozone's pretty unstable, and I bet a few minutes
after flooding the box with it, most of it would have dissipated by oxidizing everything in sight.
One good charge of ozone should make the whole box sterile, provided that there is extremely
minimal airflow (hehe, I could fill my box with
water and it wouldn't leak...in fact...I did :smile:

I haen't tested it out yet. I was a younger man
when I got involved (anybody remember oss and oeric? Psilly Psimon? Mescalito Ted?) and all my
quip got junked by a horrified mom and dad.

Hehe...boy were they pissed :smile:

Give me a few weeks, then I'll experiment with
every whim that I can come up with :smile:
