Here is a way to use Hippie's "airport" to make spore syringes, spore pouches. This method can be used to make lc's, by injecting sealed bottles of water.
The images show a syringe being filled from a sealed gallon of water.
3M microfoam tape is used to inject through because it is self-sealing.
The airport is injected next to the neck of the jug. It can then be taped/rubberbanded/etc to prevent the airport from moving around.
A 60cc syringe is used here so that pouches may be filled with enough water to make 3-5 syringes (depending on size, ie 10-20cc).

Once the pouches are made, spores are added by scraping, or inserting a piece of foil/paper with the print, or even printing directly to the pouch itself.
The pouches are made to hold about 60ccs.
A piece of 3M microfoam is used to inject through so the pouches don't leak everywhere when filling syringes from them.
Pouches can be re-sealed (impulse sealer), so you don't have to use the whole thing at once.
[editorial note: many 'headshops' carry small ziplock bags, often 1.5 inch long or so, paid like $5 for a bag of 100 of them. work well]

I have a question bout microfoam tape...Is that stuff breathable /PC-able...
have seen that stuff and looks like it may have many applications,especially if it can stick to plastics well...Great idea btw shob..

I love this post, along with Hippies airports for lc's. Great info here, and it works well, I've had great results so far. :D

After actually trying it, I would have to say that it is pc-proof. It holds it shape and does not melt.
It is not breathable, it is a closed cell foam, ie self-sealing.

Here is what the pouches are made of., Avery Heavyweight Reference Sheet Protectors. You can trim off the bottom edge and the edge with the binder ring holes. This will leave you with the 2 sides of the protector, connected by the outer (folded-over) edge.
You can lift one side and print directly to the plastic.
As shown here, you can print to tyvek and insert the tyvek in the protector, then impulse seal to make pouches. An impulse sealer will bond the plastic and tyvek together.
You can cut out and impulse seal individual pouches to whatever size you want.
The plastic is tough but flexible. The sheets are fairly cheap and can make a large number of pouches.

Yes it is po tyvek. Foaf only uses the pieces that are white on both sides. the rest (that has printing) she uses under jar lids when doing wbs.

so how do you find the tyvek to be for print release? does it come off nicely or do some spores get trapped in the fibers of the tyvek?

spore....

A great thread, Shobimono. I make mine similarly except I use foil for the print. The tape on the jug is great, that idea will save me time. Thanks!
:cool:

ok i am not following something here. I get it that you make a pouch. then you put clean water from the gallon in there which putting an airport on the jug seems a little overkill, but would help from air pulling in through the plunger of the syringe screwing everything up. How does the pouch get sterile. Now it makes sense to me to seal water in the pouch and PC and then suck them out, but what would be the point. When you could use a vacutainer. It just seems like there is a lot of room for contams.
let me know if this mildly resembles your process.

You get your baggy and suck the water out
Then you have your baggy sealed on 3 sides already.
squirt water in <In a g-box I guess would be the only way to be consistent>
then throw your print in but then how do you seal it up without taking it out of the g-box?

Great stuff but I guess I need it spelled out for me

the baggies are pretty sterile fresh from the factory.

working in glovebox/flowhood the print is placed inside the baggie and sealed.

the airport is to prevent a vacuum from forming in the jug
as you syphon out the water to fill your syringes.

the water in the sealed jug is also pretty sterile.

so one simply pinches the baggie to form an injectable wrinkle/bubble
so the needle does not go all the way thru.

inject water, knead baggie a bit to dissolve print,
needle tip to scrape print.

suck water back into syringe,
and you're good to go.

YEs, this works excellent. I even used one of Shobi's prints exactly as stated and worked great!

I love this for keeping sterile water handy, makes it easy to pc and re-sterilize my syringes empty, then use the jug of water to fill em, inject the pouch, and its happy spore syringe time!
