    Fina without the Whatman

    Hey a guy, how necessary is filtering fina through the whatman? It seems most bacteria are smaller to about the same size as .45 microns. Shouldn’t the BA plus the baking be enough to kill almost anything? I saw a few posts on gotfina that said that people used to draw up right from the vile without filtering it at all, and that the whatman was just for aesthetic reasons. What are your opinions?

    I doubt you read on gotfina that people draw right up from the vial without filtering. If you did, I'd like to see a link for that.

    The whatman is NECESSARY. It's common sense dude. Do you want large particles injected into yourself, not knowing what the hell they are..they could be glues and binders.

    Thanks for the advice guys. I was thinking next time I would try to make my own kit. Without ordering over the internet where and what kind of store would sell syringe filters and crimped sterile vials.

    The watman filter is necessary for sterility and almost no bacteria is smaller then the .45 microns and any that are don't survive in oil well.

    It'll show you the relative size of various small stuff, including bacteria. Yah, I agree with the other folks, ya gotta have the whatman. Then pasteurize it in boiling water a few times to get the viruses.

    i let a vial of fina sit unfiltered for 1 month. the fillers solidified at the bottom. I injected 1ml out of curiuosity since it filters so easily after sitting for a month. Well, that was the most painful shot I ever took in my damn life. hurt for like a week and I am sure I had an infection.

    And didn't tell your friends anything other than a few very respected people swore that unfiltered fina was stronger than that which had been run through the S.F. Leaving your friend to learn about the pain himself....thanks again "brother"
