Alternative use of medical gauze rolls


In addition to being used in clinical medicine, do you know that it has a different kind of use? Here's how to use the medical gauze roll to carry out the germination test.


Have you heard of the germination test? Usually, germination tests are usually carried out in the laboratory or in some places, and some professional equipment is used. Below, I will introduce you to a daily convenient method to see how the germination test is carried out using medical gauze rolls.

Use a towel or gauze as a germination bed, especially for large and coarse seeds. The method is to boil the towel and sterilize it. After cooling, drain the excess water, level it off, and arrange the seeds on a half towel. The large seeds such as corn and soybeans are discharged into 50 pieces of towels. The medium seeds such as rice and wheat are used. Row 100 capsules, leaving 3 to 4 cm at the edges, then fold the other half into the seeds, and put a bamboo chopstick on the opposite side of the towel. Take the bamboo chopsticks as the axis and roll the towel into a stick shape. The two ends are fastened with a thread or a rubber band, and the label is placed, placed obliquely in a shallow water tray, and placed in a germination box at a predetermined temperature. Make a sample of each towel and repeat it twice. Water should always be kept in the pan during the cultivation period. Open the towel roll on the specified date. Check and record the germination potential and germination rate. The method has the advantages of simple and convenient, good ventilation and automatic water absorption; the disadvantage is that the inspection is inconvenient, and the roots and young shoots are easily broken when opened. Therefore, it should be carefully observed during the inspection and identification, and the artificially broken seedlings should be counted as normal seedlings.
