Montreal, 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 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 many additional capacities beyond the study of insects in Montreal, CA.
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.
Due to our in-depth knowledge of the needs involved in insect research, our engineers have been able to conceive 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. Darwin Chambers’ thermoelectric cooling technology allows for effective cooling, sturdy build, and is energy efficient, as it does not need to cycle or run at full capacity, which many competitors’ cooling systems must. The primary limitation 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.
Most researchers have no call for an insect rearing environment below 15 degrees Celsius. For situations that necessitate lower temperature capabilities, 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 Montreal, 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 thousands 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. 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 Montreal, CA insect rearing products that are all designed for the specific needs of an entomologist or any researcher 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.
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.
Due to the omission 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 Montreal, CA is a breeze.
We construct our walk-in chambers to the 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, 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 our indirect cooling system that incorporates a combination of different 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 Montreal, 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. 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 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.
