I autoclave Sodium Tungstate before adding it to the media in order to sterilize it. Does it affect the metal solubility or uptake by the bacteria by any chance?

Possibly, but I doubt it.  You could try filter sterilization.

If you don't see colour changes or precipitates after autoclaving should be ok.

 

PD: don't ask the same in different forums
