I too have contamination and it was hard to save them even after rinsing with weak bleach and another rinse in distilled water. I potted them in moist sphagnum moss but they didnt survive maybe due to contamination. Another issue of replating was exudation and newbie like me at first i mistook as contamination. I read rinsing in distilled water and introduce into new jar to solve the problem.
Hope you are successful with those tiny protocorms.
gosh....all the protocorns got wipe out by the heat wave today, maybe except one that still looks greenish, the rest were like steamed broccoli color.
even my large catasetum is not spared, they were hanging there for a couple of months, today the leaves were severely burnt!
Just another voice wishing you the best of luck with these orchid protocorns.
Prayers are with you. Or if you are not religious then really high hopes in your journey.
I did something similar with some Cattlianthe protocorms several months ago. I still have some survivors. You will surely lose some, and the survivors will grow slowly, but they should grow. Good luck!

Ian.. did these protocorms survive the ordeal?
sadly to say..so far only got one protocorn survived till it manage to grow a very tiny bulb.....and this one is from the runt of batch.
the one that did very well in two flask died from premature removal from flask by me. i removed them because i notice the media was shrinking at that time and i was afraid they would be starving....all those nice healthy plants in the flask soon died one by one after weeks, total of 56 of them.......... 3 managed to matured into small tiny bulbs but was wipe out by infection as well.
