Raleigh, NC Insect Rearing We have invested our time and talents in designing the best incubators and chambers 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 Raleigh, NC. With the meticulous temperature controls and the quality construction, our insect rearing chambers are meant for use in many other capacities beyond the study of insects in Raleigh, NC. 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 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 provides effective cooling, sturdy build, 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. 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. For situations that necessitate 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 insect rearing in Raleigh, NC, sometimes as their form of food. High acidity 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 excellent for insect rearing chambers. The Fuji PxF4 PID Fuzzy Logic controller is used in numerous of commercial products and has proven its reliability and performance abilities many times over. 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 Raleigh, NC 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 eager-to-help expert associates. Reach-In Insect Chambers - the IN series The IN series is celebrated as the premier 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 are easy to service quickly and with minimal effort due to the simplicity of the components involved. Installation in Raleigh, NC is a breeze. Walk-In Insect Chambers Our walk-in chambers are available in whatever custom dimensions and specifications necessary for use within your Raleigh, NC facility. In addition to the standard features that are a part of all of our insect rearing chambers of any 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. Considering 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 is energy efficient and less expensive than the technology competitors use. In addition, the use of 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 the top priority. Our Raleigh, NC 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. 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.
