    I have a new mini advance and was wondering how I can tell if the temperature gage is accurate? How would one callibrate such an incubator?

    You could get two more thermometers and triangulate the temp but I understand that brinsea are a very good brand and pretty foolproof.

    I agree that Brinsea are good brand and I've had no trouble with my octagon at all.
    Here is a link and in section 14 it has a calibration section ~http://www.brinsea.co.uk/downloads92

    I check mine for temp just by running it and then adding a thermometer that I know to be correct. If it's there or there abouts with temp I trust the Brinsea.


    Good luck with your new incubator :D

    No trouble with my Brinsea, either! Temps were right on!
