Insect Rearing Chambers New Orleans, LA. When studying or working with drosophila (fruit flies), mosquitos, and other insects, you need access to precise and reliable insect rearing chambers in New Orleans, LA 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 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 New Orleans, LA insect rearing chambers designed and manufactured by Darwin Chambers are specifically designed and manufactured to protect and enhance the growth of specimen while also ensuring that the insect rearing chamber isn’t compromised by the specimen.

Insect Rearing Chambers New Orleans, LA

Walk-in Incubators or Coolers that aren’t specifically designed for the rearing of insects or other biological organisms will experience several issues. 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. Our competitors rely on 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. Anyone familiar with Drosophila storage, for example, will understand that they bring propionic acid to the chamber that can destroy a conventional incubator in as little as 6 months.

This is clearly a major cause for 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 are not created with the unique characteristics of insect rearing in mind, and because of this are not ideal for insect rearing applications. 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.
  • Simple to Program.
  • Overall reliability in a corrosive atmosphere, and many others.

Many of today’s incubator manufacturers 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 detrimental to the organisms and related research.

For anyone looking for the best insect rearing chamber in New Orleans, LA, we have a multi-part solution:

  • Epoxy coated air handles. This coating is the most resistant against long term corrosion.
  • Running the rooms without refrigerant in the room. 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 New Orleans, LA. 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 exact. This system generates minimal heat and thus requires a smaller compressor and consumes less energy. With extremely good temperature uniformity, our insect rearing chambers do not sacrifice quality.
  • Exclusive Antimicrobial Coating on door handles to stop bacteria from growing and spreading.
  • The low profile, 2″ floor maximizes available space, provides insulation performance, and allows minimal ramp requirements to meet A.D.A. requirements.
  • Optional panel surface finish available in black embossed galvanized steel to mimic nighttime within the chamber.

Our non-proprietary standard controls are proven and extremely precise. Our insect rearing chambers in New Orleans, LA come with setpoints and alarms that are easy to operate.  Diurnal ramping/soaking/cycling of temperatures is standard.
