Montreal, CA 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 the ideal place to breed, rear, incubate, and observe insects and other specimens you are studying in Montreal, 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 Montreal, 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 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 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

The cooling mechanism is one of the biggest concerns in insect rearing environments. Darwin Chambers' thermoelectric cooling allows for effective 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 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.

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 Montreal, CA insect rearing which can be highly acidic. The acid has the power to be 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 excellent for insect rearing chambers. The Fuji PxF4 PID Fuzzy Logic controller is used in numerous of commercial products 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 can be easily operated with very little instruction required.

Types of Insect Rearing Products

The Darwin Chambers team has engineered a diverse range of Montreal, CA insect rearing products , each designed with the needs of the entomologist and other insect-related researchers in mind. 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 friendly expert associates.

Reach-In Insect Chambers - the IN series

Our IN series is credited 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.

Due to the omission of convensional refrigeration technologies, 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 Montreal, CA is a breeze.

Walk-In Insect Chambers

Our walk-in chambers are available in whatever custom dimensions and specifications necessary for use within your Montreal, CA facility. In addition to the list of standard features that are included in all of our insect-rearing chambers, regardless of their size, there are other features to consider when discussing our insect rearing rooms.

Because our walk-in rooms are designed for people to be able to enter and work within, 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 an indirect cooling system that incorporates multiple 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 a huge concern. Our Montreal, CA 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. 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.
