Philadelphia, PA 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 Philadelphia, PA. 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 Philadelphia, PA.
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
The cooling mechanism is one of the biggest concerns in insect rearing environments. Our thermoelectric cooling technology allows for effective cooling, solid construction, and is energy efficient by functioning without the 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. Our machines use several separate thermoelectric units. A byproduct of this is redundancy and a consistent temperature. This design allows our chambers to maintain temperature even in the event of multiple system failures.
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 have 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 Philadelphia, PA insect rearing, sometimes as their form of food. The acid has the power to be 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 used in thousands 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 Philadelphia, PA insect rearing products that are all 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, speak with one of our eager-to-help expert associates.
The IN series is celebrated as the premier commercially manufactured large capacity thermoelectric-cooled insect rearing chamber, and there are thousands in use across the world today. Choose from a variety of dimensions 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 Philadelphia, PA is a breeze.
Our walk-in chambers are available in whatever custom dimensions and specifications necessary for use within your Philadelphia, PA 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. 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 a challenge. Precision Fluid Temperature Control Unit, or PFTCU, is our indirect cooling system that incorporates multiple 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 inside the chamber, safety is the top priority. Our Philadelphia, PA 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 prevent emergencies from developing into even more harmful situations.
Low-temperature insect rearing chambers have the ability to remove more heat and reach lower temperatures. 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.
