Microorganisms should be cultivated in circumstances that promote their development, such as atmosphere, temperature, and incubation time. For example, bacteria on non-selective medium cultured for 18-48 hours in an ambient or CO2 environment at 33-37° C produce excellent spectra. It should be noted that studies have shown that following adequate incubation, plates may be accurately identified when kept at room temperature (RT) for up to 12 hours. This covers species that are obligately anaerobic.
A microbiological culture or cell culture incubator is a device used to develop and maintain microbiological cultures or cell cultures. The incubator maintains an ideal temperature, humidity, and other variables like as the CO2 and oxygen content of the inside environment. Incubators are used to cultivate both bacterial and eukaryotic cells and are crucial for many experimental work in cell biology, microbiology, and molecular biology.
