  • Maintain proper incubation temperature:
    • Lower temperature can decrease OD values.
    • Higher temperatures can increase OD values.
    • Evaporation in wells can cause edging effect.
  • The optimal temperature for incubation is 22-28 C.
  • Check temperature against calibrated thermometer.
  • Strict adherence to time must be maintained.
