Las Vegas, NV 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 Las Vegas, NV. 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 Las Vegas, NV.
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 certain 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
For insect rearing rooms and containers, the cooling system is one of the major issues. Our thermoelectric cooling allows for effective cooling, sturdy build, and is energy efficient, as it does not need to cycle or run at full capacity, which many competitors’ cooling systems must. The one 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 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.
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 Las Vegas, NV insect rearing, sometimes as their form of food. High acidity is 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 excellent for insect rearing chambers. The Fuji PxF4 PID Fuzzy Logic controller is found in numerous of commercial products and has proven its reliability and performance abilities many times over.
Many other exceptional features are standard in all of our inset rearing products, placing 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 magnetic seal doors, a diurnal ramping and soaking cycle, and setpoints and high/low alarms that are simple to set with very little instruction required.
Types of Insect Rearing Products
The Darwin Chambers team has engineered a diverse range of Las Vegas, NV insect rearing products that are all designed for the specific needs of an entomologist or any researcher who studies insect subjects. Choose from our reach-in models, insect rearing rooms, or low-temperature models. If you’re not sure which model is right for you, discuss with one of our friendly expert associates.
Our IN series is celebrated as the premier commercially manufactured large capacity thermoelectric-cooled insect rearing chamber, and there are thousands in use across the world today. The models range in size from benchtop to three-door full length.
In the absence of convensional refrigeration technologies, there is no need for 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 Las Vegas, NV is a breeze.
We construct our walk-in chambers to the custom dimensions and specifications necessary for use within your Las Vegas, NV facility. In addition to the standard features that are a part of all of our insect rearing chambers of any 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 our indirect cooling system that makes use of multiple refrigeration technologies. It is energy efficient and less expensive than the technology competitors use. In addition, the use of 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 Las Vegas, NV 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 prevent emergencies from developing into even more harmful situations.
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. They are also the best choice for researchers whose work requires rapid open door recovery times.
