I am struggling with a difficult reference question and I was hoping
that somebody, perhaps with more scientific resources, can help.  This
is the question as given to me:

I am trying to find information about using electronic thermometer probe
devices for temperature monitoring inside a lab refrigerator.  These
thermometer probes can be used in air or liquid.  My specific
application involves placing the thermometer probe in a container of
water inside a refrigerator.  I need to be able to detect when the
temperature exceeds a specific temperature.  I need information in
regards to what volume of liquid is acceptable to place the probe into
so that the thermometer probe will reflect the temperature of the
supplies in the refrigerator.  


I have found guidelines from the American Society for Microbiology and
the College of American Pathologists that discuss refrigeration, but
they don't get this specific.  I also have checked Medline and Academic
Search Premiere for articles discussing this, but have not found
anything pertinent.  I was hoping somebody with more science oriented
databases might be able to help.  If you can, please let me know.


Thank you.
