ELAP Technical Questions from Laboratories

Laboratory Equipment

FA waterless incubator is a variation of a heating block, which is acceptable to use. It will still need a calibrated thermometer, read twice per day. It is important to ensure that you can get acceptable results for positive & negative cultures and proficiency samples before you start using the waterless bath.
CA ELAP allows the use of data loggers for monitoring temperatures for Autoclave, Incubator, and other equipment used for Microbiology lab. They should be monitored once a year against reference thermometer.
