Insect Rearing Orlando, FL - Insect Rearing Chambers and Incubators in Orlando, FL

Orlando, FL 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 insects and other specimens you are studying in Orlando, FL. As well, the precise temperature control and quality construction equip insect rearing chambers for use in many additional capacities beyond the study of insects in Orlando, FL.

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 accounting for special 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

The cooling mechanism is one of the biggest concerns in insect rearing environments. Darwin Chambers’ thermoelectric cooling provides 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 one limit of thermoelectric cooling is the temperature range to which the system can cool. Multiple, independently running thermoelectric units provide redundancy and the guarantee of 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 call for an insect rearing environment below 15 degrees Celsius. For situations that necessitate 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.

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 Orlando, FL insect rearing which can be highly acidic. High acidity 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 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 found in numerous of commercial applications 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 above our competitors. Chief among them is the durable construction complete with 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 can be easily operated with very little instruction required.

Types of Insect Rearing Products

The Darwin Chambers team has engineered a diverse range of Orlando, FL insect rearing products that are all 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, speak with one of our friendly expert associates.

Reach-In Insect Chambers – the IN series

The IN series is celebrated as the first 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.

In the absence of traditional refrigeration technologies, 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 Orlando, FL is a breeze.

Walk-In Insect Chambers

Our walk-in chambers are available in whatever custom dimensions and specifications necessary for use within your Orlando, FL 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, as the name implies, meant for the users to walk into, ADA complaince is a priority for us. We feel that anyone who needs to is able to access the room. 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, LED lights within the chamber provide more light while emitting less heat, and require less energy than fluorescent bulbs.

When people will be inside the chamber, safety is the top priority. Our Orlando, FL 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. 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. 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. Research that necessitates rapid open door recovery times is best done using a low temp chamber.
