New Jersey, NJ 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 insects and other specimens you are studying in New Jersey, NJ. With the meticulous temperature controls and the quality construction, our insect rearing chambers are meant for use in many other applications beyond the study of insects in New Jersey, NJ.
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 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 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. Darwin Chambers’ thermoelectric cooling technology allows for 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 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.
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.
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 New Jersey, NJ insect rearing, sometimes as their form of food. The acid is highly corrosive to some materials, but epoxy coating and thick stainless steel 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 above our competitors. Chief among them is the durable construction complete with stainless steel wire shelving options and corrosion-resistant walls. In addition, 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 New Jersey, NJ insect rearing products , each designed for the specific needs of an entomologist or any researcher who studies insect subjects. Our insect rearing products are categorized as reach-in chambers, walk-in rooms, and low-temperature reach-in chambers. If you’re not sure which model is right for you, discuss with one of our friendly expert associates.
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. The models range in size from benchtop to three-door full length.
Due to the omission of traditional 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 New Jersey, NJ is a breeze.
Our walk-in chambers are available in whatever custom dimensions and specifications necessary for use within your New Jersey, NJ 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, as the name implies, meant for the users to walk into, 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 incorporates multiple refrigeration technologies. It is energy efficient and less expensive than the technology competitors use. 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 inside the chamber, safety is a huge concern. Our New Jersey, NJ insect rearing rooms always include 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. 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 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.
