Seattle, WA 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 Seattle, WA. With the meticulous temperature controls and the quality construction, our insect rearing chambers are meant for use in countless additional applications beyond the study of insects in Seattle, WA. 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 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 For insect rearing rooms and containers, the cooling system is one of the major issues. Darwin Chambers' 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 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 a 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. 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. Cooling devices are protected from the inside of the chamber by a thick layer of sealed aluminum. This layer protects against the food and other substances involved in Seattle, WA 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 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 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 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 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 insect rearing products that are all designed for the specific needs of an entomologist or any researcher in Seattle, WA who studies insect subjects. Choose from our reach-in models, insect rearing rooms, or low-temperature models. To discern the absolute best model 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 premier commercially manufactured large capacity thermoelectric-cooled insect rearing chamber, and there are thousands in use across the world today. The models range in size from benchtop to three-door full length. Due to the omission of convensional refrigeration technologies, these machines do not require 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 Seattle, WA is a breeze. Walk-In Insect Chambers We construct our walk-in chambers to the custom dimensions and specifications necessary for use within your Seattle, WA facility. In addition to the standard features that are a part of all of our insect rearing chambers of any size, there are other features to consider when discussing our insect rearing rooms. 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 makes use of a combination of different refrigeration technologies. It leads competing technology in affordability and efficiency. 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 entering the chamber, safety is the top priority. Our Seattle, WA 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. The visual and audible alarms that are triggered is a precaution that can halt emergency situations before they become even more dangerous. 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. Research that necessitates rapid open door recovery times is best done using a low temp chamber.
