  • Low Temperature Incubators

    Hi,

    I have recently been looking into buying an incubator for stability testing of our cosmetic products, mostly pigments (powder).  From what I understand, stability testing should be done around 45 degrees C, but s I have been looking, I saw that some incubators can go low in temperature like a refrigerator (5 degrees C or even lower).  What kind of applications or tests would be done at that kind of temperature?  Can the incubator also be used at like 70 degrees C to rid any potential moisture from the powder to prevent any bacteria growth? 

    Any information is greatly appreciated, thanks!

    Also, can anyone recommend a good incubator that they may be using for such applications?
