Thread: gear expiration
03-01-2002, 10:18 AM #1
one for the gear gods:
does the expiration dates on the gear neccessarily mean it is no good, much like the expired milk in my fridge, or could you still get use out of it even though the date has passed? thanks for any info

most legit juice has about a 4 year shelf life....it is ok to go about a year past that date, but not much more....the molecules will be degraded to a point that the substance is useless......
also.. if it is a multi-dose vial that you have used and placed somewhere and just found it...you may want to think about how clean the gear is now...aseptic technique with withdrawing the juice before may not be enough to keep bacteria out of a mix....

Sound advice and view from Viper. Would fully agree with him and especially a nice observation on MD vials/bottles.
I would not use anything beyond 6-12 months expiration and also assuming that you are fully aware that the MED has been in your possession since you first purchased, and you can attest that it has been in a cool, dry place.
Rest asssured, most manufacturers often even post an expiration date before true "decomposition" could take place. From a financial standpoint, "faster" expirations equivocate to "faster" use and a "faster" return purchase. More sales/revenue.

If a MD vial, and is water based (winny, suspension) then throw the mofo away!!! Furthermore, if manufactured underground, then throw away. If not applicable.....
then your call my friend. Is the cost/investment of the remaining cc's worth the risk of a possible "malfunction"?? Again, unlikely, but your call.

i have to say im with planetx on this one!
i would be para about using gear that was a month out of date, just in case!!
just think, if something even farily minor went wrong because of that gear all your hard work for many months could be ruined while you sit and get better (assuming you CAN get better)
be safe bro, bin it and spend some more money. with AS safety has got to come first!
