Insect Rearing Chambers Columbus, OH. When studying or working with drosophila (fruit flies), mosquitos, and other insects, you need access to precise and reliable insect rearing chambers in Columbus, 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 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 Columbus, 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 Columbus, 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 that are commonly produced by the rearing of insects or the food they eat can rapidly corrode a standard refrigeration evaporator. High humidity exacerbates the issue when the acid forms concentrated condensation that will accumulate on the cooling components. Other providers 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 know that the propionic acid present in the chamber can render a new, conventional incubator useless in under 6 months.

This is clearly a major concern. However, it is not the only issue. Most incubators are produced for general use and are not created with the unique characteristics of insect rearing in mind, and because of this are unsuited to the needs of an insect researcher or worker. Details are often ignored, including:

  • Ability to shut down heating and cooling mechanisms in the event of an emergency.
  • High-heat decontamination.
  • Quiet operation.
  • Simple to Program.
  • Durability and resistance to corrosion and other atmospheric challenges.

Many incubators that are available on the market today still rely on outdated technology, but the truth is much biological research is never done at temperatures below 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 approach:

  • Epoxy coated air handles. This coating is the most resistant against long term corrosion.
  • Removing the refrigerant from the room’s interior. 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 Columbus, 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. Very little heat is generated = smaller compressor = lower energy usage. On top of all this, our insect rearing chambers are still able to provide very precise, excellent temperature uniformity.
  • Proprietary Antimicrobial Coating on door handles that act to combat 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 mimic nighttime inside the chamber.

Standard controllers are non-proprietary and are exceptionally accurate and reliable. Our insect rearing chambers in Columbus, OH 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 boast the very first commercially produced large capacity thermoelectric-cooled insect rearing chamber, thousands of which are currently being used by researchers internationally. 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 construct our walk-in chambers to the unique dimensions and specifications necessary for use within 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 Columbus, OH.

Due to the capacity 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 additional features, including:

  • Accessibility: all of our chambers meet ADA criteria to ensure they are accessible to all
  • Safety: every walk-in chamber is fitted with safety considerations including a glow-in-the-dark emergency personnel alarm with an easy-to-use pull cord
  • Efficiency: because of the size of a typical insect rearing room, consistent and reliable refrigeration can be difficult. However, 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: we understand that insect rearing walk-in chambers are an enormous investment and have taken measures 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.

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.
