For this box I used:

1 Sterlite container - $4
1 Holmes Hepa Air Purifier - $30 on clearance
4 feet hose for a water pump $4
1 small sheet of plexiglass $4
1 small sheetmetal - $3

also:
16 1" screws - $1.50
1 tube of clear silicon $2.00
A dremel tool with cutting wheel - Had it
2" hole saw attached to highspeed drill - Had it

Total: Aprox $50.00
tophepa
The vent on top was cut out with a dremel tool. Holes for the hoses where cut in the sheetmetal and the container with the 2" hole saw and then the sheet metal was screwed into place. The holes on the container were cut one on top and one on bottom in opposite corners to at least partially eliminate pockets of air in the box

The hoses were found at a major hardware chain. I believe they are made for swimming pool pumps. The hoses were then screwed into the holes on the sterlite container and the sheet metal on the hepa filter.

plexiglass
The lid was cut out with the dremel tool and 16 screw holes where drilled around the edge. The plexiglass was cut to size and roughed up with sandpaper to give the silicon something to stick to. The lid was also roughed up in this manner. A generous amount of silicon was applied and the plexiglass was tightened into place.

I just use trash bags for gloves since they are cheap and easy to replace. Plus my hands are too big to fit into any sort of glove without a major struggle.

What chemical is best to sterilize the inside of a glove box?

My concern is that fumes from alcohol or Lysol would kill spores that could be used to make microscopic syringes.

Would 200/1 water/bleech work?

Bleach/h20 is fine. I soak the inside down (don't forget the lid) and wipe dry with paper towels then apply a light mist and let that air dry.

Wouldn't letting it "air dry" allow contams to re enter, defeating the purpose of bleaching it in the first place.

I just want to know what fumes wont kill spores. I figure that if you do preparation with the fumes still present any contams that flote into your box will be killed.

No. Not when the air drying it is coming through a hepa filter like in the pics at the top of this thread. The air drying is done with the lid on and the filter running.

Lysol and bleach will both kill spores in high enough concentrations.
