Some Bio mods are applied on yourself (Mutation Serum) or onto your weapons and armors. There are different colors for bio mods, and their effects are rerolled every new game you start. In other words, just because a green Bio-mod increased your Might in one game, doesn't mean it won't have a completely different effect in another.
Inserting a +% Durability Bio-mod into a weapon or armor repairs it by an amount equal to the durability gained.
It should be noted that Bio-mods of all forms cannot be stored into the purple room locker. You can, however, store items that will help you manage them in different playthroughs, such as the Bio Slug or various Identifying items.
IMPORTANT: Bio mods will NOT carry over into a new weapon including a weapon with bio mods as an ingredient. The resulting weapon will not inherit any bio mods and there will be no warning upon using a modded weapon for crafting.

This one-time use item is inserted into a weapon or armor to remove one random Bio mod from it. You do not keep the bio-mod removed, and you use the slug in the process. You can use this to identify an unknown mod by inserting the mod right away and removing it if detrimental, but since the slug eats a random mod, this is only a real safeguard if the weapon in question has no other mods.
