I took more precautions (added a uv-c light to the glove box, used alcohol lamp instead of lighter) for this batch.
These jars have the self-healing injector port, tyvek filter and small hole in the original metal disk, and I taped the injector port with alu tape after injection. The bad jar is going inside a bag then to the trash cause I wouldn't dare risk it.
I never opened the jar but do you think it may have contaminated the incubator c.? I'm about to inoculate three LC jars that are going to the incubator and well I'm already feeling paranoid about it.
Last thing I'd want is to have contaminated the incubator and ruin future projects.
In a fruiting chamber, if cakes get contaminated or start to rot, or if a cake had had an abort start decaying to the point of spoil, can these problems cause contamination in the chamber that'll affect future projects? How about leaving the fruiting chamber's lid partially open, when trying to control humidity, can this cause contamination problems for future projects too?
