Insect Rearing Chambers Cleveland, OH. When studying or working with drosophila (fruit flies), mosquitos, and other insects, you need access to precise and reliable insect rearing chambers in Cleveland, OH 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. 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. The Cleveland, OH insect rearing chambers designed and manufactured by Darwin Chambers are specifically designed and manufactured to protect and enhance the growth of specimen while also adhering to standards required to ensure the maintainability of the room.

Insect Rearing Chambers Cleveland, OH

Walk-in 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 corrode 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 use 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 know that they bring propionic acid to the chamber that can destroy a conventional incubator in under 6 months.

That is one obvious concern. There are a number of other issues with standard incubators for insect use as well. The vast majority of incubators are produced for general use 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 shut down all heat or cold producing equipment in the event of an emergency.
  • Decontamination Ability with High Heat.
  • Quiet operation.
  • Easy programming and use.
  • Reliability and durability.

Many of today’s incubator manufacturers are still operating on dated technology, but the truth is much biological research is never done at temperatures below 15 degrees Celsius. In most cases, dropping below that temperature can actually cause damage to the organisms and related research.

For anyone looking for the best insect rearing chamber in Cleveland, OH, we have a multi-part approach:

  • 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, is an excellent solution for insect rearing rooms in Cleveland, OH. This method of cooling boasts low pressure, easy maintenance, and reliability. Ge more details on our technologies page.
  • We firmly believe in our UV sterilized ultrasonic humidification approach. It is exact. This system generates minimal heat and thus requires a smaller compressor and consumes less energy. Enjoy all this while still enjoying extreme temperature uniformity from our insect rearing chambers as well.
  • Proprietary Antimicrobial Coated 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 within the chamber.

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

There are currently thousands in use by researchers throughout the world. The models range in size from benchtop to three-door full length. Omitting the reliance on complex refrigeration systems, installation and maintenance are incredibly easy.

Walk-In Insect Chambers

We can customize our walk-in chambers to the unique dimensions and specifications needed to work in 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 features to think about when contemplating our insect rearing rooms for use in Cleveland, OH.

Because of the size and nature of large walk-in chambers such as our insect rearing chamber rooms, we create all of our walk-in rooms with some additional features, including:

  • Accessibility: all of our chambers meet ADA criteria to ensure they are accessible to all
  • 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 less expensive and more efficient than comparable competitor systems
  • Durability: we understand that insect rearing walk-in chambers are an enormous investment and have applied solutions such as 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. These models are appropriate for use in environments where ambient conditions are extreme or difficult to control or when there is a life heat load. Research that necessitates rapid open door recovery times is best done using a low temp chamber.
