    Glass falling into amp

    I opened the first amp for my cycle two days ago only to have the entire top part shatter into several pieces. All the glass remained in place but when I moved the glass a few pieces fell inside the amp. I understand that glass is too big to be sucked into the syringe but I'm still worried about whether the test is sterile. I left the gear inside my syringe and would like to hear from you guys before I consider using it.

    Don't know what price the gear in the amp cost,but i'd think your health has a slightly higher value.
    Bin it,and start again.

    I'd be concerned with the tiny fragments or dust from the glass you can't see

    I'd just use another amp and be more careful

    Strong work on thinking about the contamination. If any outside glass fell in the gear was contaminated, no question. I agree with the above comments about binning it and commend you for doing so.
