I had always assumed that this process required a circulating immersion 
heater (like sous-vide cooking) precisely for that reason. Those can 
keep a water bath, as long as the volume of water is not too large, 
within 0.1 C or so of the target temperature. I had never thought an 
oven would be well regulated enough until I read Ellen's post yesterday. 
That must be a very well controlled oven indeed.

Alberto, how does your group control the temperature in your research?
