Yeah, you can move them. most test tube molds aren't dangerous, but its better to be safe than sorry. It was probably a result of not properly cleaning your equipment or hands.
Proverbs 6:6-8

Go to the ant, you sluggard;
consider its ways and be wise!
It has no commander,
no overseer or ruler,
yet it stores its provisions in summer
and gathers its food at harvest.

Keeping Tetramorium immigrans, Lasius Neoniger
