Insect Rearing Charlotte, NC - Insect Rearing Chambers and Incubators in Charlotte, NC

Charlotte, NC Insect Rearing

We have invested our time and talents in designing the best incubators and chambers to provide the best possible atmosphere for studying drosophila (fruit flies), mosquitos, and other insects. Insect rearing chambers are made to breed, rear, incubate, and observe any insect you are studying in Charlotte, NC. With the meticulous temperature controls and the quality construction, our insect rearing chambers are meant for use in countless other applications beyond the study of insects in Charlotte, NC.

Darwin Chambers has been known for the precise temperature controls and consistent environmental conditions – such as temperature, humidity, and light – of our chambers. We have engineered our insect rearing product lines accounting for special considerations for which more general chambers do not account.

Our extensive knowledge of the field of insect-related research has allowed our engineers to design insect rearing systems that prioritize:

  • Ease of cleaning
  • Ability to shut down all heat-producing and cold-producing equipment in emergency situations
  • Decontamination abilities
  • Nearly silent noise levels
  • Easy programming
  • resistance to corrosion

Darwin’s Insect Rearing Chamber Features

The cooling mechanism is one of the biggest concerns in insect rearing environments. Darwin Chambers’ thermoelectric cooling provides reliable cooling, sturdy build, and is energy efficient, as it does not need to cycle or run at full capacity, which many competitors’ cooling systems must. The one limitation of thermoelectric cooling is the temperature range to which the system can cool. Our machines use several separate thermoelectric units. A byproduct of this is redundancy and the guarantee of consistent temperature. This design allows our chambers to maintain temperature even in the event of multiple system failures.

Most researchers have no need for an insect rearing environment below 15 degrees Celsius. Still, for those who require lower temperature capabilities, our low-temperature insect rearing chambers have a powerful, epoxy-coated condenser refrigeration system with a range of 2 to 50 degrees Celcius.

Cooling devices are protected from the inside of the chamber by a thick layer of sealed aluminum. This layer protects against the highly acidic substances that are often a part of Charlotte, NC insect rearing, sometimes as their form of food. High acidity has the power to be highly corrosive to some materials, so we rely on epoxy coating and thick stainless steel to protect your insect rearing chamber from damage.

The Fuji Electric controllers that come standard on most of our machines are excellent for insect rearing chambers. The Fuji PxF4 PID Fuzzy Logic controller is used in thousands of commercial products with a proven record in performance and reliablity.

Many other exceptional features are standard in all of our inset rearing products, placing our chambers ahead of our competitors. Chief among them is the durable construction complete with stainless steel wire shelving options and corrosion-resistant walls. In addition, enjoy magnetic seal doors, a diurnal ramping and soaking cycle, and setpoints and high/low alarms that are simple to set with very little instruction required.

Types of Insect Rearing Products

The Darwin Chambers team has engineered a diverse range of Charlotte, NC insect rearing products , each designed with the needs of the entomologist and other insect-related researchers in mind. Our insect rearing products are categorized as reach-in chambers, walk-in rooms, and low-temperature reach-in chambers. To discern the absolute best model for you, speak with one of our eager-to-help expert associates.

Reach-In Insect Chambers – the IN series

Our IN series is celebrated as the premier commercially manufactured large capacity thermoelectric-cooled insect rearing chamber, and there are thousands in use across the world today. Choose from a variety of dimensions from benchtop to three-door full length.

In the absence of convensional refrigeration equipment, these machines do not require expensive refrigeration servicing. Our reach-in chambers are are easy to service quickly and with minimal effort due to the simplicity of the components involved. Installation in Charlotte, NC is a breeze.

Walk-In Insect Chambers

Our walk-in chambers are available in whatever custom dimensions and specifications necessary for use within your Charlotte, NC facility. In addition to the standard features that are a part of all of our insect rearing chambers of any size, there are other features to consider when discussing our insect rearing rooms.

Because our walk-in rooms are, as the name implies, meant for the users to walk into, we have made sure to provide ADA compliant features that make the room accessible to everyone. Epoxy coated air handlers make parts resistant to corrosion over time. All exposed surfaces are coated with a finish to protect against corrosion.

Considering the large scale of walk-in rooms, energy efficiency becomes a priority and presents a challenge. Precision Fluid Temperature Control Unit, or PFTCU, is our indirect cooling system that makes use of a combination of different refrigeration technologies. It is energy efficient and less expensive than the technology competitors use. In addition, LED lights within the chamber provide more light while emitting less heat, and require less energy than fluorescent bulbs.

When people will be inside the chamber, safety is a huge concern. Our Charlotte, NC insect rearing rooms always include safety features like an emergency alarm. Personnel emergency alarms feature an illuminated push-button inside the room with glow-in-the-dark labels and a pull cord. The emergency system is easy to access and engage and is also easy to reset. The visual and audible alarms that are triggered is a precaution that can prevent emergencies from developing into even more harmful situations.

Low-Temperature Insect Rearing Chambers – INR Series

Low-temperature insect rearing chambers reach lower temperatures than our other models and have advanced heat removal abilities. Our low temp models are best for environments where ambient conditions are extreme or difficult to control or when there is a live heat load. They are also the best choice for researchers whose work requires rapid open door recovery times.
