b. Incubator. The incubators designed higher limit is 37°C (98°F). Above this temperature, incubation of
cultures will be less effective.
Fumes from open or cracked containers will create a potential health and fire
hazard. Insure adequate ventilation.
c. Volatile Kit Inclusions. Rising temperatures will affect alcohol, acetone and other similar kit inclusions.
There will be a tendency to change from a liquid to a gaseous state with a resultant expansion pressure on clos-
d. Shelf-Life. Chemical solutions and powder pillow reagents will have their shelf-life expectancy shortened
directly proportional to the temperature increase.
