Hi All-

I'm curious what others are doing to meet the requirement in USP 62 suitability testing of "minimum incubation time" being 18 hours after a 24 hour pre-incubation time.  
If your laboratory is not working around the clock hours, how are you meeting this (or are you NOT meeting this and finding it ok/reasonable?)  

Our laboratory is analyzing personal care/cosmetics for TAMC/TYMC and USP 62 organisms- we have a few OTC products (creams).  Guidance as it relates to an FDA GMP/GLP stance is much appreciated.

Happy to have this forum! Thanks a lot!
