If you're in need of test chambers, call Darwin today at (314) 534-3111 or contact us through our website. What Are Test Chambers? Test chambers are enclosed spaces used to conduct scientific experiments or test the effects of environmental conditions on test subjects. The precise environmental settings of a test chamber allows scientists to accurately replicate conditions that would be otherwise difficult or impossible to replicate in a research setting. Charles F. Conrad invented the first environmental test chamber in 1951, after working as a refrigerator repairman, by purposing a residential freezer to allow for temperatures of -87℃. General Motors Heat Treat Lab decided to buy it, and quickly ordered another two. In the years that have followed, test chambers have been designed and used to simulate a wide range of conditions, from extreme cold and heat, humidity or sea-salt environments. In addition to temperature and humidity, test chambers can also be used to control other aspects of the environment, such as air pressure, atmospheric composition, and even electromagnetic fields. By controlling several different environmental factors, Champaign, IL researchers can create environments that they wouldn't be able to duplicate outside of a test chamber. Different Kinds of Test Chambers in Champaign, IL Darwin Chambers first sold our stability chambers to Champaign, IL researchers over 20 years ago as the original large-capacity thermoelectric-cooled pharmaceutical test chambers. We've been coming up with more creative solutions ever since, incorporating our technologies and our and expansive knowledge to deliver precise and reliable chambers that are perfect for researchers in a variety of fields. A few of our best-selling test chambers in Champaign, IL include: Environmental Test Chambers — One of our best-selling products, our environmental chambers are quiet, easy to clean, repair, and upgrade, extremely dependable, and well-suited for laboratory use, offering unrivaled temperature and humidity control. They can reach temperatures as low as 2℃ or as high as 50℃, and greater temperature ranges are possible through optional upgrades to construction. Stability Test Chambers — Our stability test chambers are made to surpass FDA and ICH standards. Our stability chambers are trusted in numerous different industries, including pharmaceutical, cosmetic, nutraceutical, medical device, therapeutic pharmaceuticals, pharmaceutical stress testing, and other research companies both in Champaign, IL and around the world. We also offer stability refrigerators and stability freezers. Material Test/Cure Chambers — These are well-suited for the harshness 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 reliable operation, durable construction, and accurate results. The MC Series offers serious performance to Champaign, IL engineers and researchers looking for serious results. Altitude Test Rooms — We have teamed up with Colorado Altitude Training (CAT), located in Boulder, Colorado, to offer a unique chamber for altitude simulation. Our units can reduce the oxygen content from 20.9% to 15.2%, while the pressure stays the same. Our altitude chambers have been used by the U.S. Speed Skating Team, Harvard University, U.A.E., College of William and Mary, Mayo Clinic, Tour de France winners among others. Freeze/Thaw Test Chambers — These chambers are ideal for Champaign, IL scientists who require ramp/soak capabilities. These chambers permit you to determine how your product will hold up under extreme conditions. During the freeze/thaw cycle your subject is put through a series of extreme temperature changes that it might be subject to during its lifespan. 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 personal care products. Temperatures can extend from -25℃ to 50℃. Heated-Humidified Incubators/Ovens Our HH Series of units are ideal for pharmaceutical stress testing at 50C/75%RH. They can maintain temperatures as low as 5℃ or as high as 70℃ and offer superior control and uniformity. Our exclusive ultrasonic humidification system eliminates hot spots in the chamber and greatly decreases required maintenance costs. Have other research needs in Champaign, IL?
