What Are Test Chambers?

Test chambers are specially constructed boxes, of various sizes, used to how certain conditions affect test subjects. The precise environmental settings of a test chamber allows researchers to accurately replicate conditions while keeping a close eye on the specimen. Charles F. Conrad created the first environmental test chamber in 1951, after working as a refrigerator repairman, by purposing his personal freezer to allow for temperatures of -87℃. He sold it to General Motors Heat Treat Lab, who quickly asked Conrad to produce two more.

Ever since, test chambers have been designed and used to simulate a wide range of conditions, from extreme cold and heat, humidity or sea-salt environments.

One of the main advantages of using test chambers is that they allow for very precise control of the environment. This means that Cambridge, MA researchers can be confident that the results of their experiments are not affected by factors that they are not testing for.

Darwin's Test Chambers in Cambridge, MA

Darwin Chambers initially introduced our stability chambers to the Cambridge, MA community in 2003 as the original large-capacity thermoelectric-cooled pharmaceutical test chambers. We've been innovating ever since, combining our technologies and our and expansive knowledge to deliver precise and reliable chambers that are ideal for researchers in a variety of fields. A few of our most popular test chambers in Cambridge, MA include:

  • Environmental Test Chambers — One of our most popular chambers, our environmental chambers are quiet, easy to clean, highly dependable, and well-suited for laboratory use, providing unequaled temperature and humidity control. They can reach temperatures as low as 2℃ or as high as 50℃, and greater temperature ranges can be achieved through upgrades at extra cost.
  • Stability Test Chambers — Our stability test chambers not only meet, but surpass FDA and ICH requirements. Thousands of our stability chambers are currently in use by many pharmaceutical, cosmetic, nutraceutical, medical device, therapeutic pharmaceuticals, pharmaceutical stress testing, and other research companies both in Cambridge, MA and around the world. We also offer stability refrigerators and stability freezers.
  • Material Test/Cure Chambers — These are ideal for the rigors of exact temperature and humidity control in concrete, asphalt, and other materials common in construction and engineering. Unlike the vast majority of "testing" currently on the market, these chambers offer unmatched construction and results.
  • Altitude Test Chambers — We work alongside Colorado Altitude Training (CAT) in Boulder, Colorado, to offer an unmatched unit for altitude simulation. Our system can reduce the oxygen levels from 20.9% to 15.2%, while keeping the pressure consistent. Our altitude testing units have been used by numerous well-known clients, including the U.S Olympic Committee, Harvard University, U.A.E., College of William and Mary, Mayo Clinic, Pro cycling Team and many more.
  • Freeze/Thaw Test Chambers — These units are well-suited for Cambridge, MA researchers who require ramp/soak programming. These units allow you to determine how your product will hold up under various conditions. During the freeze/thaw cycle your subject is put through a series of extreme temperature changes that it may encounter during its life cycle. You can easily change the temperatures, duration of testing, and how many cycles are performed each day. These Freeze Thaw chambers are ideal for ASTM materials testing, as well as testing for medication, food and beverage, and cosmetic products. Freezing and thawing capabilities range from -25℃ to 50℃.
  • Heated-Humidified Incubators/Ovens Our HH Series chambers can be used as pharmaceutical stress test chambers at 50C/75%RH. Temperatures range from 5℃ to 70℃, and offer superior control and uniformity. Our proprietary ultrasonic humidification system does not allow for hot spots within the unit and greatly reduces required maintenance expenses.
