Insect Rearing New Orleans, LA - Insect Rearing Chambers and Incubators in New Orleans, LA

New Orleans, LA 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 New Orleans, LA. As well, the precise temperature control and quality construction equip insect rearing chambers for use in countless additional applications beyond the study of insects in New Orleans, LA.

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 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

The cooling mechanism is one of the biggest concerns in insect rearing environments. Darwin Chambers’ thermoelectric cooling allows for effective cooling, solid construction, and is energy efficient, as it does not need to cycle or run at full capacity unlike other cooling mechanisms that are commonly used in refrigerating systems. The one limitation 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. In an emergency, our chamber will still be able to maintain a consistent temperature.

Most researchers have 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 Orleans, LA insect rearing, 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 standard controls on our machines are made by Fuji Electric and are ideal 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.

Our insect rearing products come standard with many additional features that put 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 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 New Orleans, LA insect rearing products , each 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. 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.

Due to the omission 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 New Orleans, LA is a breeze.

Walk-In Insect Chambers

Our walk-in chambers are available in whatever custom dimensions and specifications necessary for use within your New Orleans, LA 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, 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 an 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 New Orleans, LA 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. 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. They are also the best choice for researchers whose work requires rapid open door recovery times.
