What Are Test Chambers?

Test chambers are specially constructed boxes or cabinets used to conduct scientific experiments or test the effects of environmental conditions on products or biological specimens. The precise environmental settings of a test chamber allows scientists to accurately replicate conditions that would be otherwise challenging to replicate in the real world. Charles F. Conrad invented the first environmental test chamber on his front porch in Holland, MI in 1951, by purposing his home freezer to reach temperatures as low as -87℃. General Motors Heat Treat Lab decided to buy it, and quickly ordered 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 Charleston, SC researchers can be sure that the results of their experiments are not affected by factors that they are not testing for.

Darwin's Test Chambers in Charleston, SC

Darwin Chambers initially introduced our stability chambers to the Charleston, SC community over 20 years ago as the first large-capacity thermoelectric-cooled pharmaceutical test chambers. Since then, we've continued to innovate, incorporating our technologies and our and expansive knowledge to deliver precise and reliable chambers that are perfect for researchers no matter what they're studying. A few of our best-selling test chambers in Charleston, SC include:

  • Environmental Test Chambers — One of Darwin Chambers' best-selling units, our environmental chambers are quiet, easy to clean, repair, and upgrade, highly reliable, and well-suited for laboratory use, providing unrivaled precisions. Standard units can reach temperatures as low as 2℃ or as high as 50℃, and more extreme temperatures can be achieved through upgrades at extra cost.
  • Stability Test Chambers — Our stability test chambers not only meet, but 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 purposes both in Charleston, SC and globally. We also offer stability refrigerators and stability freezers.
  • Concrete Curing Chambers — These are great for the harshness of precision temperature and humidity control in concrete, asphalt, and other hard surfaces. Unlike most of "testing" currently on the market, these chambers offer unmatched construction and results.
  • Altitude Test Rooms — We partner with Colorado Altitude Training (CAT) in Boulder, Colorado, to offer a unique chamber for altitude simulation. Our units can replicate over 2,700 meters of elevation, while keeping the pressure consistent. Our altitude chambers have been used by the U.S. Speed Skating Team, Harvard University, Doha Sports Hospital, College of William and Mary, Mayo Clinic, Pro cycling Team and many more.
  • Freeze/Thaw Test Chambers — These units are ideal for Charleston, SC researchers looking for ramp/soak controls. These chambers permit you to determine if your product will remain stable under extreme conditions. During the freeze/thaw cycle your product is put through numerous different temperature changes that it might encounter during its life cycle. Versatility with the chamber includes varying the freeze and thaw temperatures, duration in the freeze and thaw parts of a cycle, and overall number of cycles per day. These Freeze Thaw chambers are great for ASTM materials testing, as well as testing for drugs, 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 utilized as pharmaceutical stress test chambers at 50C/75%RH. They can maintain temperatures as low as 5℃ or as high as 70℃ and offer standard control at the sensor of ±0.2℃ and ±0.3%RH. Our exclusive ultrasonic humidification system does not allow for hot spots in the chamber and greatly reduces required operational expenses.
