Sacramento, CA 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 made to breed, rear, incubate, and observe insects and other specimens you are studying in Sacramento, CA. With the meticulous temperature controls and the quality construction, our insect rearing chambers are meant for use in countless other applications beyond the study of insects in Sacramento, CA. 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 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 conceive 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 For insect rearing rooms and containers, the cooling system is one of the major issues. Darwin Chambers' thermoelectric cooling technology allows for reliable cooling, sturdy 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 primary limit of thermoelectric cooling is the temperature range to which the system can cool. Multiple, independently running thermoelectric units provide redundancy and the guarantee of 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 temperatures below this threshold, 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 protects against the food and other substances involved in Sacramento, CA insect rearing which can be highly acidic. 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 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 the use of 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 insect rearing products , each designed for the specific needs of an entomologist or any researcher in Sacramento, CA who studies insect subjects. Choose from our reach-in models, insect rearing rooms, or low-temperature models. If you're not sure which model is right for you, discuss with one of our eager-to-help expert associates. Reach-In Insect Chambers - the IN series The 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. 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 made of simple components that you can easily and quickly service when necessary without a specialized technician or special tools. Installation in Sacramento, CA is a breeze. Walk-In Insect Chambers We construct our walk-in chambers to the custom dimensions and specifications necessary for use within your Sacramento, CA 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, we have made sure to provide ADA compliant features that make the room accessible to everyone. 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 presents 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, 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 entering the chamber, safety is the top priority. Our Sacramento, CA insect rearing rooms always include 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 - INR Series 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. They are also the best choice for researchers whose work requires rapid open door recovery times.
