New Orleans, LA 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 New Orleans, LA. With the meticulous temperature controls and the quality construction, our insect rearing chambers are meant for use in many additional applications beyond the study of insects in New Orleans, LA.
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 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 the guarantee of 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. 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 protects against the food and other substances involved in New Orleans, LA insect rearing which can be highly acidic. The acid has the power to be 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 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 ahead of our competitors. Primarily, our chambers are built using durable materials such as stainless steel wire shelving options and corrosion-resistant walls. Owners of our chambers also 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 New Orleans, LA insect rearing products , each 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. To discern the absolute best model for you, discuss with one of our eager-to-help expert associates.
Our 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. Choose from a variety of dimensions from benchtop to three-door full length.
In the absence of convensional refrigeration equipment, there is no need for 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 New Orleans, LA is a breeze.
Our walk-in chambers are available in whatever custom dimensions and specifications necessary for use within your New Orleans, LA 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. Epoxy coated air handlers make parts resistant to corrosion over time. All exposed surfaces are coated with a finish to protect against corrosion.
Considering 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 is energy efficient and less expensive than the technology competitors use. In addition, the use of 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 New Orleans, LA 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. It is both easy to engage and reset whenever necessary. The visual and audible alarms that are triggered is a precaution that can prevent emergencies from developing into even more harmful situations.
Low-temperature insect rearing chambers have the ability to remove more heat and reach lower temperatures. 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.
