Insect Rearing Chambers Baltimore, MD. When studying or working with drosophila (fruit flies), mosquitos, and other insects, you need access to precise and reliable insect rearing chambers in Baltimore, MD 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 the growth of specimen and the longevity of the room. 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. The Baltimore, MD insect rearing chambers designed and manufactured by Darwin Chambers are specifically designed and manufactured to protect and enhance the growth of specimen while also ensuring that the insect rearing chamber isn’t compromised by the specimen.

Insect Rearing Chambers Baltimore, MD

Standard or general incubators or coolers have several issues that affect the researcher’s ability to rear of insects and other biological organisms. The acids inherent in the rearing of many specimens or their food will rapidly break down 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. Our competitors use 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. For example, if you have ever worked with Drosophila, you understand that they bring propionic acid to the chamber that can destroy a conventional incubator in under 6 months.

That is one obvious cause for concern. There are a number of other issues with standard incubators for insect use as well. The vast majority of incubators are produced for a standard audience and don’t require the protections that are needed for insect rearing, and because of this are unsuited to insect rearing applications. Significant factors that are often overlooked include:

  • Ability to easily shut off all heat or cold producing equipment in the event of an emergency.
  • High-heat decontamination.
  • Minimal Noise.
  • Easy programming and use.
  • Reliability and durability.

Many incubators that are available on the market today are still operating on outdated technology, but biological testing almost never tests at temperatures below 15 degrees Celsius. Any ability to go below that temperature can actually be a liability to the organisms and related research.

For anyone looking for the best insect rearing chamber in Baltimore, MD, we have a multi-fold approach:

  • Epoxy coated air handlesa material which acheives long-term resistance against corrosion.
  • Running the rooms without refrigerant in the room. We have not used straight refrigerant in mild heat load applications in a decade, and for good reason. Our Precision Fluid Temperature Control Unit, or PFTCU, works out very well in insect rearing rooms in Baltimore, MD. This method of cooling boasts low pressure, easy maintenance, and reliability. Ge more details on our technologies page.
  • We utilize U.V. sterilized ultrasonic humidification. It is precise. Very little heat is generated = smaller compressor = lower energy usage. With extremely good temperature uniformity, our insect rearing chambers do not sacrifice quality.
  • Proprietary Antimicrobial Coating on door handles to reduce 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 minimal ramp requirements to meet A.D.A. requirements.
  • Optional panel surface finish available in black embossed galvanized steel to imitate nighttime inside the chamber.

Our non-proprietary standard controls are proven and exceptionally precise. Our insect rearing chambers in Baltimore, MD come with setpoints and alarms that are easy to operate.  Diurnal ramping/soaking/cycling of temperatures is standard.

Reach-In Insect Chambers – the IN series

We are proud to be the makers of the premiere commercially manufactured large capacity thermoelectric-cooled insect rearing chamber. There are currently thousands in use by researchers internationally. We produce this line with benchtop, one-door, to three-door vertical models. With simple components, installation and maintenance are incredibly easy.

Walk-In Insect Chambers

We construct our walk-in chambers to the exact dimensions and specifications needed to work in your facility. We have a list of stadard features that are included in all of our insect rearing chambers of all sizes, but also offer additional options to think about when discussing our insect rearing rooms for use in Baltimore, MD.

Due to the size and nature of our insect rearing chamber rooms and any other large walk-in chambers, we produce all of our walk-in rooms with some additional features, including:

  • Accessibility: we make sure to make every chamber we produce is ADA compliant
  • Safety: all of our walk-in chambers are complete with safety considerations such as an easy-to-pull and readily visible emergency personnel pull cord alarm
  • Efficiency: because of the size of a typical insect rearing room, consistent and reliable refrigeration can be difficult. However, 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: insect rearing walk-in chambers are a hefty investment. We 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 have the ability to remove more heat and reach lower temperatures. These models are appropriate for use in cases where there is a live heat load or when surrounding ambient conditions are hard to control or extreme. They are also the best choice for researchers whose work requires rapid open door recovery times.

Below is an expansive list of the Controlled Environmental Chambers we design, build, and install. If you have further inquiries, we can be reached at 314-534-3111 or by filling out the form on this page.
