Insect Rearing Santa Ana, CA - Insect Rearing Chambers and Incubators in Santa Ana, CA

Santa Ana, 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 the ideal place to breed, rear, incubate, and observe any insect you are studying in Santa Ana, CA. As well, the precise temperature control and quality construction equip insect rearing chambers for use in countless other applications beyond the study of insects in Santa Ana, 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 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 allows for effective cooling, solid construction, and is energy efficient, as it does not need to cycle or run at full capacity, which many competitors’ cooling systems must. The one limit of thermoelectric cooling is the temperature range to which the system can cool. Multiple, independently running thermoelectric units provide redundancy and a consistent temperature. This design allows our chambers to maintain temperature even in the event of multiple system failures.

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 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 protects against the food and other substances involved in Santa Ana, CA insect rearing which can be highly acidic. 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 ideal for insect rearing chambers. The Fuji PxF4 PID Fuzzy Logic controller is used in thousands of commercial applications 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. Primarily, our chambers are built using durable materials such as 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 Santa Ana, CA insect rearing products , each designed with the needs of the entomologist and other insect-related researchers in mind. Our insect rearing products are categorized as reach-in chambers, walk-in rooms, and low-temperature reach-in chambers.

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.

In the absence of traditional 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 Santa Ana, 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 Santa Ana, CA 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 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 makes use of a combination of different 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 Santa Ana, CA insect rearing rooms come standard with 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. They are also the best choice for researchers whose work requires rapid open door recovery times.
