Insect Rearing Chambers Buffalo, NY. When studying or working with drosophila (fruit flies), mosquitos, and other insects, you need access to precise and reliable insect rearing chambers in Buffalo, NY 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 have to adhere to and maintain a standard level of conditions to ensure the growth of specimen and the longevity of the room. Chambers built for more traditional purposes often struggle with the procurement of insects as their materials and processes aren’t properly designed to be maintained under adverse conditions that can arise with the rearing of insects. Darwin Chamber’s Insect Rearing Chambers in Buffalo 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 Buffalo, NY

Walk-in Incubators or Coolers that aren’t specifically designed for the rearing of insects or other biological organisms will experience several issues. The acids inherent in the rearing of many specimens or their food will quickly break down a standard refrigeration evaporator. The corrosion is catalyzed by high humidity levels, as droplets of concentrated acid will collect on the cooling components. Other chamber manufacturers rely on large 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 render a new, conventional incubator useless 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. Most incubators are produced for a standard audience and disregard the specific needs and challenges of an insect rearing environment, 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.
  • Overall reliability in a corrosive atmosphere, and many others.

Many of today’s incubator manufacturers are still operating on dated technology, but biological testing almost never tests anything lower than 15 degrees Celsius. Any ability to go below that temperature can actually be a liability to the organisms and related research.

Darwin Chambers’ answer for researchers looking for the best insect rearing chamber is a multi-fold solution:

  • Epoxy coated air handlesa material which acheives long-term resistance against corrosion.
  • Running the rooms without refrigerant in the room. 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 Buffalo, NY. Low pressures, ease of repair, and reliability are just some of the reasons we love it. You can read more on our technologies page.
  • We use a form of humidification that relies on UV sterlized ultrasonics. It is precise. 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 to discourage the spread of bacteria and pathogens.
  • The low profile, 2″ floor maximizes available space, improves the insulation performance of the room, and allows minimal ramp requirements to meet A.D.A. requirements.
  • A black embossed finish on the galvanized steel panels within the room is meant to mirror nighttime inside the chamber.

Our non-proprietary standard controls are proven and exceptionally well-controlled. Our insect rearing chambers in Buffalo, NY come with setpoints and alarms that are easy to operate.  Chambers also come programmed with standard diurnal ramping/soaking/cycling of temperatures.

  • Accessibility: we make sure to make every chamber we produce is ADA compliant
  • Safety: every walk-in chamber is complete with safety features such as an easy-to-pull and readily visible emergency personnel pull cord alarm
  • Efficiency: energy use to refrigerate our insect rearing rooms can be a challenge due to the size of the space, but we use a cooling technology called Precision Fluid Temperature Control Unit, or PFTCU, which is much more affordable and energy efficient than comparable competitor systems
  • Durability: insect rearing walk-in chambers are a hefty investment. We have applied solutions like an epoxy coating to ensure that the parts are protected against corrosion and last as long as possible

Low-Temperature Insect Rearing Chambers – INR Series

Low-temperature insect rearing chambers have the ability to remove more heat and reach lower temperatures. 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.
