    Can I sterilize a vial with a plastic flip-top on?

    I have some gear and want to make sure it is sterile. It has one of those plastic flip-tops. I want to know if the rubber stopper or the plastic flip-top will melt if I put it in the oven at 250 degrees for 15 minutes for a total of 3 times?

    Any info would help. thanks!

    Yes, the gear is homemade. I've just got to make sure it is sterile. I got an infection before and it was hell, so I am more than a little anxious.

    understandable... be extremely careful when u switch needles, and pre-pin prep. the heat wont harm the gear tho, i'm just thinking in terms of if the rubber melts a little it might be a bitch to draw gear out

    you have to take the removable plastic lid off. Take a 18g needle and cut the plastic of of the needle. then you have to use the modified pin as a vent. ANd place the needle in the rubber stopper. Make sure the needle doesnt dip down into the oil. place it just above the oil line.

    You can not heat up a closed container and expect it not to bust.
