Madison, WI 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 insects and other specimens you are studying in Madison, WI. As well, the precise temperature control and quality construction equip insect rearing chambers for use in many additional applications beyond the study of insects in Madison, WI. 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 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 reliable cooling, sturdy construction, and is energy efficient, as it does not need to cycle or run at full capacity, which many competitors' cooling systems must. 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. This design allows our chambers to maintain temperature even in the event of multiple system failures. Most researchers have no call 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. 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 Madison, WI, sometimes as their form of food. 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 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 thousands 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 the use of 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 , each designed with the needs of the entomologist and other insect-related researchers in Madison, WI in mind. Choose from our reach-in models, insect rearing rooms, or low-temperature models. 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 Our IN series is credited 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 equipment, 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 Madison, WI is a breeze. Walk-In Insect Chambers We construct our walk-in chambers to the custom dimensions and specifications necessary for use within your Madison, WI 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, 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 our indirect cooling system that makes use of a combination of different 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 a huge concern. Our Madison, WI 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.
