Sacramento, 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 made to breed, rear, incubate, and observe any insect you are studying in Sacramento, CA. As well, the precise temperature control and quality construction equip insect rearing chambers for use in countless other capacities beyond the study of insects in Sacramento, 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 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 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. Our thermoelectric cooling allows for reliable cooling, solid 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 limit 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. 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 Sacramento, CA insect rearing which can be highly acidic. The acid is 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 found 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 Sacramento, CA insect rearing products that are all designed with the needs of the entomologist and other insect-related researchers in mind. 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 friendly expert associates.
Our IN series is credited as the premier commercially manufactured large capacity thermoelectric-cooled insect rearing chamber, and there are thousands in use across the world today. Choose from a variety of dimensions from benchtop to three-door full length.
In the absence of convensional 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 Sacramento, CA is a breeze.
Our walk-in chambers are available in whatever custom dimensions and specifications necessary for use within your Sacramento, 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, as the name implies, meant for the users to walk into, 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.
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 makes use of a combination of different 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 Sacramento, 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. It is both easy to engage and reset whenever necessary. When triggered, visual and audible alarms will sound – a feature 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. 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.
