Columbus, OH 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 made to breed, rear, incubate, and observe any insect you are studying in Columbus, OH. With the meticulous temperature controls and the quality construction, our insect rearing chambers are meant for use in countless other applications beyond the study of insects in Columbus, OH. 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 with 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 design 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. Darwin Chambers' thermoelectric cooling technology provides effective cooling, sturdy build, and is energy efficient, as it does not need to cycle or run at full capacity unlike other cooling mechanisms that are commonly used in refrigerating systems. The primary limitation of thermoelectric cooling is the temperature range to which the system can cool. Multiple, independently running thermoelectric units provide redundancy and the guarantee of consistent temperature. In an emergency, our chamber will still be able to maintain a consistent temperature. Most researchers have no need for an insect rearing environment below 15 degrees Celsius. Still, for those who require temperatures below this threshold, our low-temperature insect rearing chambers have a powerful, epoxy-coated condenser refrigeration system with a range of 2 to 50 degrees Celcius. A thick layer of sealed aluminum separates each chamber's cooling device from the chamber interior. This layer offers profection against the highly acidic substances that are often a part of insect rearing in Columbus, OH, sometimes as their form of food. The acid has the power to be highly corrosive to some materials, but epoxy coating and thick stainless steel protect your insect rearing chamber from damage. The standard controls on our machines are made by Fuji Electric and are ideal for insect rearing chambers. The Fuji PxF4 PID Fuzzy Logic controller is found in thousands of commercial applications and has proven its reliability and performance abilities many times over. Our insect rearing products come standard with many additional features that put our chambers ahead of our competitors. Chief among them is the durable construction complete with 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 Columbus, OH who studies insect subjects. Our insect rearing products are categorized as reach-in chambers, walk-in rooms, and low-temperature reach-in chambers. To discern the absolute best model for you, speak with one of our eager-to-help expert associates. Reach-In Insect Chambers - the IN series The IN series is celebrated as the premier commercially manufactured large capacity thermoelectric-cooled insect rearing chamber, thousands of which are currently being used by researchers worldwide. The models range in size 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 made of simple components that you can easily and quickly service when necessary without a specialized technician or special tools. Installation in Columbus, OH is a breeze. Walk-In Insect Chambers We construct our walk-in chambers to the custom dimensions and specifications necessary for use within your Columbus, OH facility. In addition to the list of standard features that are included in all of our insect-rearing chambers, regardless of their size, our insect rearing rooms have been built with auxilary features necessary for these large chambers. Because our walk-in rooms are designed for people to be able to enter and work within, we have made sure to provide ADA compliant features that make the room accessible to everyone. 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 presents a challenge. Precision Fluid Temperature Control Unit, or PFTCU, is an indirect cooling system that makes use of multiple refrigeration technologies. It is energy efficient and less expensive than the technology competitors use. In addition, LED lights within the chamber emit more light, produce less heat, and require less energy than fluorescent bulbs. When people will be inside the chamber, safety is the top priority. Our Columbus, OH insect rearing rooms come standard with safety features like an emergency alarm. An illuminated push-button within the chamber, glow-in-the-dark labeling, and a pull cord make up the personnel emergency alarm. It is both easy to engage and reset whenever necessary. When triggered, visual and audible alarms will sound - a feature that can halt emergency situations before they become even more dangerous. 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 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.
