Insect Rearing Long Island, NY - Insect Rearing Chambers and Incubators in Long Island, NY

Long Island, NY Insect Rearing

Our versatile line of insect rearing chambers has been specifically designed 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 Long Island, NY. As well, the precise temperature control and quality construction equip insect rearing chambers for use in countless additional capacities beyond the study of insects in Long Island, NY.

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.

Our extensive knowledge of the field of insect-related research has allowed our engineers 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

For insect rearing rooms and containers, the cooling system is one of the major issues. Darwin Chambers’ thermoelectric cooling technology provides effective cooling, sturdy 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. 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.

In most research settings, there is no need for an insect rearing environment below 15 degrees Celsius. Still, for those who require lower temperature capabilities, our low-temperature insect rearing chambers use 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 food and other substances involved in Long Island, NY insect rearing which can be highly acidic. The acid 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 standard controls on our machines are made by Fuji Electric and are excellent for insect rearing chambers. The Fuji PxF4 PID Fuzzy Logic controller is used in numerous of commercial applications with a proven record in performance and reliablity.

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. Owners of our chambers also enjoy 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 Long Island, NY insect rearing products that are all designed with the needs of the entomologist and other insect-related researchers in mind. Choose from our reach-in models, insect rearing rooms, or low-temperature models. If you’re not sure which model is right for you, speak with one of our friendly 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. The models range in size from benchtop to three-door full length.

Due to the omission of traditional 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 Long Island, NY is a breeze.

Walk-In Insect Chambers

We construct our walk-in chambers to the custom dimensions and specifications necessary for use within your Long Island, NY 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, as the name implies, meant for the users to walk into, we have made sure to provide ADA compliant features that make the room accessible to everyone. Epoxy coated air handlers make parts resistant to corrosion over time. All exposed surfaces are coated with a finish to 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 a combination of different refrigeration technologies. It leads competing technology in affordability and efficiency. In addition, the use of LED lights within the chamber provide more light while emitting less heat, and require less energy than fluorescent bulbs.

When people will be entering the chamber, safety is a huge concern. Our Long Island, NY insect rearing rooms always include 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. The emergency system is easy to access and engage and is also easy to reset. 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 reach lower temperatures than our other models and have advanced heat removal abilities. 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.
