  • Reptile egg incubator for microbe testing?

    Posted by AliciaN on October 18, 2020 at 11:47 pm

    Hi all. What are your thoughts on using a reptile egg incubator (up to 40 degree Celsius controlled temp) to incubate my dip slides?

    Also, how do you do your testing? I read on a hobbyist website about having three tests:
    1. lotion with no preservative
    2. lotion with preservative
    3. lotion with preservative, with a finger dipped in

    Any thoughts on this?

    Lastly, I assume i’m not supposed to see any growth at all before i’m confident to send for PCT, yes?

    Thanks in advance, looking forward to reading your responses.
