I didn’t want to necro this discussion, but it’s relevant.
I cleared out a whole floor of an underground science labs and probably a dozen or more zombie scientists and didn’t find any autoclave pouches. There was an autodoc with some prototype cyborgs and a bunch of CBMs in storage.
Did I just have really bad luck with the RNG or are they really rare?
The discussion on crafting autoclave pouches petered out without reaching a productive conclusion, but as it says there you basically need a container that can have a CBM stuck inside it, fit inside the autoclave, survive over-pressure high temperature steam, and be sealed without touching the insides after it has gone through the wash cycle.
There’s also the option of not using a pouch and just picking it up with a normal plastic bag that you have soaked in antiseptic / denatured alcohol and hoping for the best. I don’t think you can use CBMs that aren’t completely sterile in the game now, but logically you could just clean them as best you can and take antibiotics for a week afterwards. Compared with daily life in zombie utopia and autodocs that can literally kill you it’s probably not that big a risk.
