Many mesophyllic organisms in soil have thermal tolerances beginning at about 102[degrees]F to 104[degrees]F (39[degrees]C to 40[degrees] C).
If the Tryptic Soy agar strips are initially incubated at 22[degrees] C for 24, 48, and 72 hours and are then incubated at 36 [degrees] C, both psychrophilic and mesophyllic organisms may be recovered.
