sterilizing

How to sterilize vials of oil-based gear? I don't want to pop it in the microwave for fear of the metal top.
I suppose I could place it in a pan of water and heat, but what temps and how long? Will excessive heat damage it and what is excessive?

    Why do you need to steralize the vials ??? You put the pin through the rubber and draw then change the pin. Not sure what you mean

    Just a precaution, it's from a UG lab and it's been in storage for a number of months.

    Wipe vial and rubber bung with alco-swab, insert pin, draw up gear, change pin, jab away.

    Your worrying about nothing.

    Thanks for the suggestion. However you misunderstand my question. I want to sterilize the contents of the vial.

    Play: do you know if a certain amount of heat might damage the gear? ie. boiling?

    i dont think you will get the heat required with boiling water. If you think its that dodgy why are you considering using it? There are plenty of decent undergrounf labs that produse sterile gear

    Its as sterile as its gonna get without filtering and god knows what else to it.

    It aint getting any more sterile, use it or get something else tbh.
