If your goal is only to make a temperature regulated incubator then it would be a lot easier to just use a bi-metal or brass wafer thermostat.

Something you'll also want to watch out for is drying out your bacteria. With the egg incubator I built I continually found it difficult keeping the humidity high; if I ever do that again I'll add a power misting system.

Yeah I know a lot of people put bowls of water in the middle to keep the humidity high. Also I would like to make it controlled by an Arduino running a program that you could say you want the temp between 2 numbers and it would keep it there using a thermometer shield for the Arduino and some form of heating controlled by the Arduino.

thanks rob and no they are 2 different things.

i will try and see if i can make one

I was wondering if anyone could tell me how to make a bacteria incubator(it is basically the same as a egg incubator) which would include a thermometer that would send readings to a computer and then display the temp on a led number board, it would change the heat from inputs from the computer and as an extra it would be nice if there could be a webcam that looked at the bottom of the incubator for recording growth.

Hi I was wondering if anyone knows how to make a shield for the Arduino that could monitor bacteria. So heat, growth, health maybe or what mutations/if it has mutated.
