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

Insect Rearing Chambers Miami, FL

Standard or general 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 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. Other providers 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.

This is clearly a major cause for concern. There are a number of other issues with standard incubators for insect use as well. The vast majority of incubators are designed 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. Critical details are often ignored, including:

  • Ability to shut down heating and cooling mechanisms in a malfunction.
  • High-heat decontamination.
  • Minimal Noise.
  • Simple to Program.
  • Reliability and durability.

Many incubators that are available on the market today still rely 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 related research.

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

  • Epoxy coated air handlesa material which acheives long-term resistance against 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, is an excellent solution for insect rearing rooms in Miami, FL. This method of cooling boasts low pressure, easy maintenance, and reliability. Ge more details 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. With extremely good temperature uniformity, our insect rearing chambers do not sacrifice quality.
  • Proprietary Antimicrobial Coated door handles to discourage 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 meet A.D.A. requirements.
  • Optional panel surface finish available in black embossed galvanized steel to mirror nighttime within the chamber.

Our non-proprietary standard controls are proven and extremely well-controlled. The setpoints and alarms on our insect rearing chambers in Miami, FL are easy to set.  Diurnal ramping/soaking/cycling of temperatures is standard.

Reach-In Insect Chambers – the IN series

We are proud to be the makers of the very first commercially produced 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 unique 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 Miami, FL.

Due to the size 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 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 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 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 there is a live heat load or when surrounding ambient conditions are hard to control or extreme. Research that necessitates rapid open door recovery times is best done using a low temp chamber.
