Are you using a laminar flow hood? Is the incubator and hood away from
the main traffic in the lab? Clean the incubators regularly with 70%
etoh, autoclave shelves. Clean out the water in the incubator every week
and add fungicide eg Bath Clear, to the water. Wash your hands,
wear a clean lab coat, keep your hair (head and or facial) clean
and out of the way. Clean out the water bath used to warm media and add
fungicide to it, Basically clean up your act.
As a last resort add fungizone to the culture medium.
