St. Louis, MO 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 made to breed, rear, incubate, and observe any insect you are studying in St. Louis, MO. As well, the precise temperature control and quality construction equip insect rearing chambers for use in many other capacities beyond the study of insects in St. Louis, MO. Darwin Chambers has been known for the precise temperature controls and consistent environmental conditions - such as temperature, humidity, and light - of our chambers. We have engineered 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 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 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. In most research settings, there is no call for an insect rearing environment below 15 degrees Celsius. Still, for those who require temperatures below this threshold, 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 food and other substances involved in St. Louis, MO 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 excellent for insect rearing chambers. The Fuji PxF4 PID Fuzzy Logic controller is found in thousands of commercial applications with a proven record in performance and reliablity. Our insect rearing products come standard with many additional features that put 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 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 , each designed for the specific needs of an entomologist or any researcher in St. Louis, MO 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 friendly expert associates. Reach-In Insect Chambers - the IN series The IN series is credited 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, 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 St. Louis, MO is a breeze. Walk-In Insect Chambers Our walk-in chambers are available in whatever custom dimensions and specifications necessary for use within your St. Louis, MO 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. 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 a challenge. Precision Fluid Temperature Control Unit, or PFTCU, is an 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 emit more light, produce less heat, and require less energy than fluorescent bulbs. When people will be entering the chamber, safety is a huge concern. Our St. Louis, MO 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 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. They are also the best choice for researchers whose work requires rapid open door recovery times.
