Sampling without an incubator

At my facility, we do low, medium, and high risk compounding and my understanding is all levels require fingertip sampling and media-fill procedure testing.  We do not have an incubator and our outside lab doesn't have the capability to do incubating for us.  Can we use ATP swabbing for our fingertip sampling, if not, do you have a suggestion?  Do you have a suggestion for our media-fill test sampling?

Re: Sampling without an incubator

You're probably best off just purchasing a lab incubator. We got ours relatively cheap from Quincy Labs.

It's probably cheaper to make the investment than shipping samples to an outside lab.
