In order to assist, I (and others) would need more information on the setup.  Right now, it “all depends” on the entire process and goals of the project. 


Generally speaking a blanket “no” is not the right answer, but the question, “how can we do this safely with an acceptable risk profile?” is the right start to an answer.

I have a scientist who wants to put a small shaker unit into an incubator. The scientist and safety person in me are saying NO, but I would like to be able to quote something that can say no regulatory wise. If you have seen/done this, please share that information with me as well.


I am working on finding information on this, but there is not much out there on this kind of process.


Can any of you assist with this situation?
