Hehe. Just passing on some info. Figured I'd give non stick foil a try for a print. The spores never stuck to the foil at all. They actually dried as one big print that moved all together and just slid off the foil. The only problem is that if you don't have a sonicator to break up the spores ( ) they stick together and won't really break apart with shaking/stirring.

Figured I'd pass along the info. None more sticking to the foil but you better have something to break up the clumps. :-)

That could actually be a good thing, right?

Thats definitely a good thing down here where the humidity is higher, especially when printing during the summer.

id say its a great thing
being as though the ultra sonic tek is starting to catch on more
this little tip is right on time

its a small price to pay to avoid the shredding of foil or paper.


and this too shall pass

Is it some kind of coating that makes it non stick or just ultra smooth foil..?

It seems to just be ultra smooth foil....I'm not really sure though. But when you compare the non-stick side to the other side it does just look more smooth. Even if it is a coating though, it doesn't effect the spores at all, they still germinate.

Yea its great really as long as you have a way to break up the spores afterwards. Kinda depressing though not to have a sonicator and shake your arm off to see tons of clumps remaining. :-)

you could slide them into a fresh ziplock with a bit of sterile water and break them up with your fingers maybe..? i'm sure you'd still have some clumps but should be alot easier then trying to shake the syringe..
