Minneapolis, MN 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 the ideal place to breed, rear, incubate, and observe any insect you are studying in Minneapolis, MN. As well, the precise temperature control and quality construction equip insect rearing chambers for use in countless other capacities beyond the study of insects in Minneapolis, MN. 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. 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. Our thermoelectric cooling allows for reliable cooling, solid build, and is energy efficient by functioning without the need to cycle or run at full capacity, which many competitors' cooling systems must. The primary limitation of thermoelectric cooling is the temperature range to which the system can cool. Multiple, independently running thermoelectric units provide redundancy and a 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 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 highly acidic substances that are often a part of insect rearing in Minneapolis, MN, 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 ideal for insect rearing chambers. The Fuji PxF4 PID Fuzzy Logic controller is found 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. Owners of our chambers also 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 with the needs of the entomologist and other insect-related researchers in Minneapolis, MN in mind. 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 The 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. Choose from a variety of dimensions from benchtop to three-door full length. In the absence of convensional refrigeration equipment, these machines do not require 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 Minneapolis, MN is a breeze. Walk-In Insect Chambers Our walk-in chambers are available in whatever custom dimensions and specifications necessary for use within your Minneapolis, MN 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. Considering the large scale of walk-in rooms, energy efficiency becomes a priority and a challenge. Precision Fluid Temperature Control Unit, or PFTCU, is an indirect cooling system that makes use of multiple refrigeration technologies. It leads competing technology in affordability and efficiency. In addition, 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 the top priority. Our Minneapolis, MN insect rearing rooms come standard with 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 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.
