Modified Mycology Lid (Wide Mouth)
This item is a plastic one piece lid for wide mouth jars (Ball, Kerr, etc). It can be autoclaved (including pressure cookers at 20 psi) and used for grain, agar, or liquid culture (LC) jars.
The lid is modified with a 1/4″ hole covered with a filter for gas exchange and a self healing injection port. The port location is easily identified by a mound (see photo below).
These are made in house and are the same ones MMM uses to prepare gourmet grain spawn, gourmet LCs, and distilled water for spore syringes.

We always recommend using large gauge needles (small bore) to reduce damage to the self healing injection port. When treated correctly the port should last for at least 25+ injections and sterilization cycles.
These things take the pressure cooker just fine and are easy to use. No regrets!
The lids were awesome and made injecting a whole lot easier. Definitely recommend.
Super high quality and great product
This is the 2nd time I've bought from MMM. Always quick on responding, fast payments, and easy to work with. The products, including the wide mouth lid, are just as described and work great.
I forgot to mention I used MR for my payment method, and I got so many lovely freebies with my order.
I should have bought these a long time ago.
