Santa Ana, 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 Santa Ana, CA. As well, the precise temperature control and quality construction equip insect rearing chambers for use in many other applications beyond the study of insects in Santa Ana, 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 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 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

For insect rearing rooms and containers, the cooling system is one of the major issues. Darwin Chambers' thermoelectric cooling technology provides effective cooling, sturdy build, and is energy efficient by functioning without the 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. 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.

In most research settings, there is no need for an insect rearing environment below 15 degrees Celsius. For situations that necessitate temperatures below this threshold, 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 highly acidic substances that are often a part of Santa Ana, CA insect rearing, sometimes as their form of food. High acidity is 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 excellent for insect rearing chambers. The Fuji PxF4 PID Fuzzy Logic controller is used in numerous of commercial products and has proven its reliability and performance abilities many times over.

Our insect rearing products come standard with many additional features that put our chambers above 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 can be easily operated with very little instruction required.

Types of Insect Rearing Products

The Darwin Chambers team has engineered a diverse range of Santa Ana, 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, discuss with one of our eager-to-help expert associates.

Reach-In Insect Chambers - the IN series

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. The models range in size from benchtop to three-door full length.

Due to the omission of traditional refrigeration technologies, 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 Santa Ana, 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 Santa Ana, CA 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, 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 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, 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 Santa Ana, 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 - 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. They are also the best choice for researchers whose work requires rapid open door recovery times.
