Insect Rearing Chambers Detroit, MI. When studying or working with drosophila (fruit flies), mosquitos, and other insects, you need access to precise and reliable insect rearing chambers in Detroit, MI 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 Detroit 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 Detroit, MI

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 can quickly break down a standard refrigeration evaporator. High humidity exacerbates the issue when the acid forms concentrated condensation that will collect on the cooling components. Other chamber manufacturers 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 realize that they bring propionic acid to the chamber that can destroy a conventional incubator in under 6 months.

This is clearly a major cause for concern. There are a number of other issues with standard incubators for insect use as well. Most incubators are designed for general use and are not created with the unique characteristics of insect rearing in mind, 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 an emergency.
  • Decontamination Ability with High Heat.
  • Quiet operation.
  • Easy programming and use.
  • Reliability and durability.

Many incubators that are available on the market today are still operating on outdated technology, but the truth is much biological research is never done anything lower than 15 degrees Celsius. Any ability to go below that temperature can actually cause damage to the insect specimen and subsequent research.

Darwin Chambers’ answer for researchers looking for the best insect rearing chamber is 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, works out very well in insect rearing rooms in Detroit, MI. This method of cooling boasts low pressure, easy maintenance, and reliability. Find out more on our technologies page.
  • We firmly believe in our UV sterilized ultrasonic humidification approach. 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 stop bacteria from growing and spreading.
  • The low profile, 2″ floor maximizes the capacity within the room, improves the insulation performance of the room, and allows the room to easily meet A.D.A. requirements.
  • Optional panel surface finish available in black embossed galvanized steel to imitate nighttime within the chamber.

Standard controllers are non-proprietary and are extremely well-controlled. Our insect rearing chambers in Detroit, MI come with setpoints and alarms that are easy to operate.  Diurnal ramping/soaking/cycling of temperatures is standard.

Insect Rearing Chambers Detroit, MI – Our Models

Because each researchers’ needs, different types and lifestages of insects’ needs, and the specific needs of your insect-related work are so diverse, what you need from your Detroit, MI insect rearing chambers will also be different. Darwin Chambers understands that for any important effort in groundbreaking scientific study, product engineering, and other endeavors that may involve insect rearing, Detroit, MI insect rearing chambers are not a one-size-fits-all solution. You must have a advanced insect rearing chamber that caters to your facility and the purpose of your insect work. We have engineered a number of insect rearing chambers in Detroit, MI that can be extensively customized to fulfill your exact needs. Discover additional details about the models we offer for Detroit, MI insect rearing chambers below.

Reach-In Insect Chambers – the IN series

We boast the very first commercially manufactured large capacity thermoelectric-cooled insect rearing chamber. There are currently thousands in use by researchers around the globe. 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 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 characteristics to consider when choosing one of our insect rearing rooms for use in Detroit, MI.

Due to the capacity and nature of large walk-in chambers such as our insect rearing chamber rooms, we produce all of our walk-in rooms with some special considerations in mind, including:

  • Accessibility: we make sure to make every chamber we produce is ADA compliant
  • Safety: every walk-in chamber is fitted with safety features such as 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, our indirect cooling system known as a Precision Fluid Temperature Control Unit, or PFTCU, 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 applied solutions such as 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 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.
