Denver, CO Insect Rearing
Our versatile line of insect rearing chambers has been specifically designed to provide the best possible atmosphere for studying drosophila (fruit flies), mosquitos, and other insects. Insect rearing chambers are the ideal place to breed, rear, incubate, and observe insects and other specimens you are studying in Denver, CO. As well, the precise temperature control and quality construction equip insect rearing chambers for use in countless other applications beyond the study of insects in Denver, CO.
In addition to the precise manipulation and consistent control of the temperature, humidity, and light within the chamber, our engineers have designed our insect rearing product lines accounting for certain considerations for which more general chambers do not account.
Due to our in-depth knowledge of the needs involved in insect research, our engineers have been able 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
For insect rearing rooms and containers, the cooling system is one of the major issues. Darwin Chambers’ thermoelectric cooling technology allows for reliable cooling, solid construction, and is energy efficient by functioning without the need to cycle or run at full capacity, which many competitors’ cooling systems must. The one limit 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. In an emergency, our chamber will still be able to maintain a consistent temperature.
In most research settings, there is 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 use a powerful, epoxy-coated condenser refrigeration system with a range of 2 to 50 degrees Celcius.
A thick layer of sealed aluminum separates each chamber’s cooling device from the chamber interior. This layer offers profection against the highly acidic substances that are often a part of Denver, CO insect rearing, sometimes as their form of food. High acidity has the power to be highly corrosive to some materials, but epoxy coating and thick stainless steel protect your insect rearing chamber from damage.
The standard controls on our machines are made by Fuji Electric and are excellent for insect rearing chambers. The Fuji PxF4 PID Fuzzy Logic controller is found in thousands of commercial products with a proven record in performance and reliablity.
Our insect rearing products come standard with many additional features that put our chambers ahead of our competitors. Primarily, our chambers are built using durable materials such as stainless steel wire shelving options and corrosion-resistant walls. Owners of our chambers also enjoy the use of magnetic seal doors, a diurnal ramping and soaking cycle, and setpoints and high/low alarms that can be easily operated with very little instruction required.
Types of Insect Rearing Products
The Darwin Chambers team has engineered a diverse range of Denver, CO insect rearing products that are all 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. If you’re not sure which model is right for you, discuss with one of our eager-to-help expert associates.
Our IN series is celebrated as the first commercially manufactured large capacity thermoelectric-cooled insect rearing chamber, thousands of which are currently being used by researchers worldwide. Choose from a variety of dimensions from benchtop to three-door full length.
Due to the omission of convensional refrigeration technologies, these machines do not require expensive refrigeration servicing. Our reach-in chambers are made of simple components that you can easily and quickly service when necessary without a specialized technician or special tools. Installation in Denver, CO is a breeze.
Our walk-in chambers are available in whatever custom dimensions and specifications necessary for use within your Denver, CO facility. In addition to the list of standard features that are included in all of our insect-rearing chambers, regardless of their size, there are other features to consider when discussing our insect rearing rooms.
Because our walk-in rooms are designed for people to be able to enter and work within, ADA complaince is a priority for us. We feel that anyone who needs to is able to access the room. The designs also feature epoxy-coated air handlers and finishes on exposed surfaces that protect against corrosion.
Because of the large scale of walk-in rooms, energy efficiency becomes a priority and 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, the use of LED lights within the chamber emit more light, produce less heat, and require less energy than fluorescent bulbs.
When people will be inside the chamber, safety is a huge concern. Our Denver, CO insect rearing rooms come standard with 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. It is both easy to engage and reset whenever necessary. When triggered, visual and audible alarms will sound – a feature that can halt emergency situations before they become even more dangerous.
Low-temperature insect rearing chambers reach lower temperatures than our other models and have advanced heat removal abilities. These models are appropriate for use in 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.
