Insect Rearing Chambers Anaheim, CA. When studying or working with drosophila (fruit flies), mosquitos, and other insects, you need access to precise and reliable insect rearing chambers in Anaheim, CA that provide an environment specifically meant for breeding, rearing, incubating, and observing the insects you are working with. You need a dedicated insect rearing chamber that is designed specifically for insect work and goes beyond simple manipulation and measurement of light, temperature, and humidity provided by a standard environmental chamber.

Insect Rearing Chambers need further enhancements and industry-specific specifications to ensure that the room can properly grow the specimen without being compromised by the specimen or methods used to procure it. Standard Walk-in Chambers and Environmental Chambers often do not meet these requirements due to the problematic conditions that can arise from the rearing of certain specimen. Darwin Chamber’s Insect Rearing Chambers in Anaheim are specifically designed and manufactured rearing chambers that protect and enhance the growth of specimen while also ensuring that the insect rearing chamber isn’t compromised by the specimen.

Insect Rearing Chambers Anaheim, CA

Standard or general incubators or coolers that aren’t specifically designed for the rearing of insects or other biological organisms will experience several issues. The acids that are commonly produced by the rearing of insects or the food they eat can rapidly eat away at a standard refrigeration evaporator. The corrosion is catalyzed by high humidity levels when the acid forms concentrated condensation that will accumulate on the cooling components. Other providers rely on cumbersome evaporator units that are more prone to experiencing leaks that can be costly and also require the replacement of expensive components, other than the evaporator itself, due to compromised oil (modern refrigeration oils are very hygroscopic) in the system. Anyone familiar with Drosophila storage, for example, will recognize that they bring propionic acid to the chamber that can render a new, conventional incubator useless in as little as 6 months.

That is one obvious cause for concern. However, it is not the only issue. The vast majority of incubators are designed for general use and don’t require the protections that are needed for insect rearing, and because of this are unsuited to the needs of an insect researcher or worker. Critical details that are often overlooked include:

  • Ability to easily shut off heating and cooling mechanisms in an emergency.
  • High-heat decontamination.
  • Minimal Noise.
  • Simple to Program.
  • Overall reliability in a corrosive atmosphere, and many others.

Many incubators that are available on the market today still rely on dated technology, but biological testing almost never tests at temperatures below 15 degrees Celsius. In most cases, dropping below that temperature can actually be a liability to the insect specimen and related research.

For anyone looking for the best insect rearing chamber in Anaheim, CA, we have a multi-fold solution:

  • Epoxy coated air handles. This coating is the most resistant against long term corrosion.
  • Removing the refrigerant from the room’s interior. After almost a decade after turning our back on straight refrigerant in mild heat load applications, we are glad we did. Our Precision Fluid Temperature Control Unit, or PFTCU, works out very well in insect rearing rooms in Anaheim, CA. This method of cooling boasts low pressure, easy maintenance, and reliability. Find out more on our technologies page.
  • We use a form of humidification that relies on UV sterlized ultrasonics. It is exact. It generates very little heat, which requires a smaller compressor, which leads to lower energy usage. On top of all this, our insect rearing chambers are still able to provide very precise, excellent temperature uniformity.
  • Exclusive Antimicrobial Coating on door handles that act to combat the spread of bacteria and pathogens.
  • The low profile, 2″ floor maximizes the capacity within the room, improves the insulation performance of the room, and allows the room to easily satisfy A.D.A. requirements.
  • Optional panel surface finish available in black embossed galvanized steel to mirror nighttime inside the chamber.

Standard controllers are non-proprietary and are exceptionally accurate and reliable. Our insect rearing chambers in Anaheim, CA come with setpoints and alarms that are easy to operate.  Chambers also come programmed with standard diurnal ramping/soaking/cycling of temperatures.

Reach-In Insect Chambers – the IN series

We are proud to be the makers of the very first commercially manufactured large capacity thermoelectric-cooled insect rearing chamber. There are currently thousands in use by researchers throughout the world. The models range in size from benchtop to three-door full length. With simple components, installation and maintenance require little effort.

Walk-In Insect Chambers

We can customize our walk-in chambers to the exact dimensions and specifications necessary for use within your facility. In addition to the standard features that are a part of all of our insect rearing chambers of any size, there are other options to think about when contemplating our insect rearing rooms for use in Anaheim, CA.

Due to the size and nature of our insect rearing chamber rooms and any other large walk-in chambers, we create all of our walk-in rooms with some special considerations in mind, including:

  • Accessibility: all of our chambers meet ADA criteria to ensure they are accessible to all
  • Safety: all of our walk-in chambers are complete with safety features including a glow-in-the-dark emergency personnel alarm with an easy-to-use pull cord
  • Efficiency: energy use to refrigerate our insect rearing rooms can be a challenge due to the size of the space, but our indirect cooling system known as a Precision Fluid Temperature Control Unit, or PFTCU, is less expensive and more efficient than comparable systems used by our competitors
  • Durability: we understand that insect rearing walk-in chambers are an enormous investment and have applied solutions like an epoxy coating on functional components to encourage longevity of the chamber and protect against corrosion and other destructive events

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 life heat load. They are also the best choice for researchers whose work requires rapid open door recovery times.
