What Are Test Chambers?

Test chambers are specially constructed boxes, of various sizes, 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 while being able to get exact readings. Charles F. Conrad innovated the first environmental test chamber on his front porch in Holland, MI in 1951, by purposing his personal freezer to reach temperatures as low as -87℃. He sold it to General Motors Heat Treat Lab, who quickly asked Conrad to make another two.

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.

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, Charlotte, NC researchers can create environments that would be impossible to duplicate outside of a test chamber.

Different Kinds of Test Chambers in Charlotte, NC

Darwin Chambers initially introduced our stability chambers to the Charlotte, NC community over 20 years ago as the original large-capacity thermoelectric-cooled pharmaceutical test chambers. We've been innovating ever since, combining our technologies and our skills to deliver chambers that researchers in any field can depend on. A few of our best-selling test chambers in Charlotte, NC include:

  • Environmental Test Chambers — One of Darwin Chambers' most popular products, our environmental chambers are quiet, easy to clean, highly reliable, and ideal for laboratory use, offering unparalleled environmental control. Standard units offer a temperature range of 2℃ to 50℃, and greater temperature ranges can be achieved through upgrades at extra cost.
  • Stability Test Chambers — Our stability test chambers not only meet, but exceed FDA and ICH requirements. 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 Charlotte, NC and around the globe. We also offer stability refrigerators and stability freezers.
  • Material Test/Cure Chambers — These are ideal for adhering to the strict testing guidelines of concrete, asphalt, and other materials common in construction and engineering. Unlike the vast majority of "testing" system available to control temperature/humidity for engineering needs, these chambers provide dependable operation, durable construction, and accurate results. The MC Series offers serious performance to Charlotte, NC engineers and researchers looking for serious results.
  • Altitude Test Chambers — We work alongside 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, Pro cycling Team among others.
  • Freeze/Thaw Test Chambers — These chambers are ideal for Charlotte, NC researchers who require ramp/soak capabilities. These units allow you to determine how your product will hold up under various conditions. During the freeze/thaw cycle your subject undergoes a series of extreme temperature changes that it may 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 well-suited for ASTM materials testing, as well as testing for prescriptions, food and beverage, and personal care products. Freezing and thawing capabilities range from -25℃ to 50℃.
  • Heated-Humidified Incubators/Ovens Our HH Series chambers are ideal for pharmaceutical stress testing at 50C/75%RH. Temperatures range from 5℃ to 70℃, and offer superior control and uniformity. Our own ultrasonic humidification system eliminates hot spots in the chamber and greatly reduces required maintenance costs.
