Los Angeles, CA 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 Los Angeles, CA. As well, the precise temperature control and quality construction equip insect rearing chambers for use in countless other applications beyond the study of insects in Los Angeles, CA. Darwin Chambers has been known for the precise temperature controls and consistent environmental conditions - such as temperature, humidity, and light - of our chambers. We have engineered 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 prioritize: 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 technology allows for reliable cooling, solid construction, 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 the guarantee of consistent temperature. This design allows our chambers to maintain temperature even in the event of multiple system failures. In most research settings, there is no need for an insect rearing environment below 15 degrees Celsius. For situations that necessitate temperatures below this threshold, our low-temperature insect rearing chambers use 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 protects against the food and other substances involved in Los Angeles, CA insect rearing which can be highly acidic. High acidity is 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 excellent for insect rearing chambers. The Fuji PxF4 PID Fuzzy Logic controller is used in numerous of commercial products 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. 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 insect rearing products that are all designed for the specific needs of an entomologist or any researcher in Los Angeles, CA 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 friendly expert associates. Reach-In Insect Chambers - the IN series Our IN series is celebrated as the first 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. In the absence of convensional refrigeration technologies, there is no need for 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 Los Angeles, CA is a breeze. Walk-In Insect Chambers Our walk-in chambers are available in whatever custom dimensions and specifications necessary for use within your Los Angeles, CA 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 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. 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 our indirect cooling system that incorporates a combination of different refrigeration technologies. It leads competing technology in affordability and efficiency. 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 entering the chamber, safety is the top priority. Our Los Angeles, CA 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 reach lower temperatures than our other models and have advanced heat removal abilities. 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.
