Insect Rearing Chambers Nashville, TN

Darwin Chambers offers state-of-the-art Insect Rearing Chambers in Nashville, TN.

Insect Rearing Chambers Nashville, TN. When studying or working with drosophila (fruit flies), mosquitos, and other insects, you need access to precise and reliable insect rearing chambers in Nashville, TN 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 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 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. To inquire about the Insect Rearing Chambers that we make available to Nashville, TN clients, contact our team at 314-534-3111 or online today.

Insect Rearing Chambers Nashville, TN

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 eat away at a standard refrigeration evaporator. The corrosion is catalyzed by high humidity levels, as droplets of concentrated acid will accumulate on the cooling components. Our competitors 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 recognize that the propionic acid present in the chamber can render a new, conventional incubator useless in only 6 months.

This is clearly a major concern. There are a variety of other similar issues when it comes to working with insects and using a traditional incubator. Most incubators are produced for a standard audience and don't require the protections that are needed for insect rearing, and because of this are unsuited to the needs of an insect researcher or worker. Significant factors are often ignored, including:

  • Ability to easily shut off heating and cooling mechanisms in the event of a malfunction.
  • High-heat decontamination.
  • Minimal Noise.
  • Easy programming and use.
  • Durability and resistance to corrosion and other atmospheric challenges.

Many of today's incubator manufacturers still rely 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.

Darwin Chambers' answer for researchers looking for the best insect rearing chamber is a multi-part 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 Nashville, TN. Low pressures, ease of repair, and reliability are just some of the reasons we love it. Find out more on our technologies page.
  • We utilize U.V. sterilized ultrasonic humidification. It is precise. Very little heat is generated = smaller compressor = 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 available space, improves the insulation performance of the room, and allows the room to easily meet A.D.A. requirements.
  • A black embossed finish on the galvanized steel panels within the room is meant to emulate nighttime inside the chamber.

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

  • Accessibility: we make sure to make every chamber we produce is ADA compliant
  • Safety: all of our walk-in chambers are 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, we use a cooling technology called Precision Fluid Temperature Control Unit, or PFTCU, which 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 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 cases 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.

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.
