just in the middle to keep the box closed (and to let me know that it has been autoclaved).

true. the tape indicates that it has been heated to autoclave temperatures, not necessarily long enough to kill everything.

keep in mind that some things are resistant to normal autoclaving (eg-prion proteins).
