Boston, MA Insect Rearing We have invested our time and talents in designing the best incubators and chambers to provide the best possible atmosphere for studying drosophila (fruit flies), mosquitos, and other insects. Insect rearing chambers are the ideal place to breed, rear, incubate, and observe any insect you are studying in Boston, MA. With the meticulous temperature controls and the quality construction, our insect rearing chambers are meant for use in countless additional applications beyond the study of insects in Boston, MA. In addition to the precise manipulation and consistent control of the temperature, humidity, and light within the chamber, our engineers have designed our insect rearing product lines accounting for special considerations for which more general chambers do not account. Due to our in-depth knowledge of the needs involved in insect research, our engineers have been able to conceive insect rearing systems that manifest: Ease of cleaning Ability to shut down all heat-producing and cold-producing equipment in emergency situations Decontamination abilities Nearly silent noise levels Easy programming resistance to corrosion Darwin's Insect Rearing Chamber Features The cooling mechanism is one of the biggest concerns in insect rearing environments. Our thermoelectric cooling technology provides effective cooling, solid build, and is energy efficient by functioning without the need to cycle or run at full capacity unlike other cooling mechanisms that are commonly used in refrigerating systems. The primary limit of thermoelectric cooling is the temperature range to which the system can cool. Our machines use several separate thermoelectric units. A byproduct of this is redundancy and a consistent temperature. In an emergency, our chamber will still be able to maintain a consistent temperature. In most research settings, there is no call for an insect rearing environment below 15 degrees Celsius. For situations that necessitate lower temperature capabilities, our low-temperature insect rearing chambers have a powerful, epoxy-coated condenser refrigeration system with a range of 2 to 50 degrees Celcius. Cooling devices are protected from the inside of the chamber by a thick layer of sealed aluminum. This layer protects against the highly acidic substances that are often a part of insect rearing in Boston, MA, sometimes as their form of food. The acid has the power to be highly corrosive to some materials, so we rely on epoxy coating and thick stainless steel to protect your insect rearing chamber from damage. The Fuji Electric controllers that come standard on most of our machines are ideal for insect rearing chambers. The Fuji PxF4 PID Fuzzy Logic controller is found in thousands of commercial applications with a proven record in performance and reliablity. Our insect rearing products come standard with many additional features that put our chambers above our competitors. Primarily, our chambers are built using durable materials such as stainless steel wire shelving options and corrosion-resistant walls. In addition, enjoy the use of magnetic seal doors, a diurnal ramping and soaking cycle, and setpoints and high/low alarms that can be easily operated with very little instruction required. Types of Insect Rearing Products The Darwin Chambers team has engineered a diverse range of insect rearing products , each designed for the specific needs of an entomologist or any researcher in Boston, MA who studies insect subjects. Choose from our reach-in models, insect rearing rooms, or low-temperature models. To discern the absolute best model for you, discuss with one of our eager-to-help expert associates. Reach-In Insect Chambers - the IN series The IN series is celebrated as the first commercially manufactured large capacity thermoelectric-cooled insect rearing chamber, and there are thousands in use across the world today. Choose from a variety of dimensions from benchtop to three-door full length. Due to the omission of convensional refrigeration technologies, these machines do not require expensive refrigeration servicing. Our reach-in chambers are are easy to service quickly and with minimal effort due to the simplicity of the components involved. Installation in Boston, MA is a breeze. Walk-In Insect Chambers We construct our walk-in chambers to the custom dimensions and specifications necessary for use within your Boston, MA facility. In addition to the list of standard features that are included in all of our insect-rearing chambers, regardless of their size, there are other features to consider when discussing our insect rearing rooms. Because our walk-in rooms are, as the name implies, meant for the users to walk into, ADA complaince is a priority for us. We feel that anyone who needs to is able to access the room. The designs also feature epoxy-coated air handlers and finishes on exposed surfaces that protect against corrosion. Because of the large scale of walk-in rooms, energy efficiency becomes a priority and a challenge. Precision Fluid Temperature Control Unit, or PFTCU, is an indirect cooling system that incorporates multiple refrigeration technologies. It leads competing technology in affordability and efficiency. In addition, LED lights within the chamber emit more light, produce less heat, and require less energy than fluorescent bulbs. When people will be entering the chamber, safety is the top priority. Our Boston, MA insect rearing rooms come standard with safety features like an emergency alarm. Personnel emergency alarms feature an illuminated push-button inside the room with glow-in-the-dark labels and a pull cord. It is both easy to engage and reset whenever necessary. The visual and audible alarms that are triggered is a precaution that can prevent emergencies from developing into even more harmful situations. 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 environments where ambient conditions are extreme or difficult to control or when there is a live heat load. Research that necessitates rapid open door recovery times is best done using a low temp chamber.
