When I looked in my incubator today. One of my jars had a smal wet red dot on a cake(not yet with myc). When I opened the jar a awfull smell came out. What was it and how big is the change that he has contamed my others jars(trough the dry layer then the foil then the air again foil and again dry layer).
Did you open it around the other jars? That would increase your chances of spreading it to the other jars, for sure! It sounds like lipstick to me. Sorry to hear that. Just keep a close eye on your other jars and isolate that one and observe it often.
I dont think so, but others can be. No need to smell contams... If it isnt myc, you will tell, and ditch it. Jars are like 60-80 cents a piece.
Last time I opened a green moldy one to smell, was when I first started and at a diff house. By the last two months, I had gone to almost no contams to green mold in everything, including the syringes.
My new place, I just chuck em, and buy a new case when I get under 50 jars.
