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

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 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 chamber manufacturers 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. For example, if you have ever worked with Drosophila, you realize that they bring propionic acid to the chamber that can render a new, conventional incubator useless in as little as 6 months.

That is one obvious cause for concern. There are a variety of other similar issues when it comes to working with insects and using a traditional incubator. The vast majority of 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 the needs of an insect researcher or worker. Critical details are often ignored, including:

  • Ability to shut down all heat or cold producing equipment in the event of an emergency.
  • Decontamination Ability with High Heat.
  • Quiet operation.
  • Simple to Program.
  • Overall reliability in a corrosive atmosphere, and many others.

Many incubators that are available on the market today still rely on dated technology, but biological testing almost never tests 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-fold approach:

  • Epoxy coated air handlesa material which acheives long-term resistance against corrosion.
  • Removing the refrigerant from the room’s interior. 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, is an excellent solution for insect rearing rooms in Rochester, NY. Low pressures, ease of repair, and reliability are just some of the reasons we love it. You can read more on our technologies page.
  • We utilize U.V. sterilized ultrasonic humidification. It is precise. This system generates minimal heat and thus requires a smaller compressor and consumes less energy. Enjoy all this while still enjoying extreme temperature uniformity from our insect rearing chambers as well.
  • Proprietary Antimicrobial Coated door handles to reduce bacteria from growing and spreading.
  • The low profile, 2″ floor maximizes the capacity within the room, provides insulation performance, and allows the room to easily meet A.D.A. requirements.
  • Optional panel surface finish available in black embossed galvanized steel to emulate nighttime within the chamber.

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