What Are Test Chambers?

Test chambers are enclosed spaces used to conduct scientific experiments or test the effects of environmental conditions on products or biological specimens. The controlled environment of a test chamber allows scientists to accurately replicate conditions that would be otherwise difficult or impossible to duplicate in a research setting. Charles F. Conrad designed the first environmental test chamber in 1951, after working as a refrigerator repairman, by purposing his personal freezer to allow for temperatures as low as -125℉. General Motors Heat Treat Lab decided to purchase it, and quickly asked Conrad to produce two more.

Since then, hundreds of manufacturers have developed test chambers that simulate more than just cold, from extreme heat, humidity or replicating various altitudes.

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

Types of Test Chambers in Columbia, SC

Darwin Chambers initially introduced our stability chambers to Columbia, SC researchers over 20 years ago as the original large-capacity thermoelectric-cooled pharmaceutical test chambers. Since then, we've continued to innovate, incorporating our technologies and our skills to deliver precise and reliable chambers that are ideal for researchers in a variety of fields. A few of our best-selling test chambers in Columbia, SC include:

  • Environmental Test Chambers — One of Darwin Chambers' most popular products, our environmental chambers are quiet, easy to clean, highly dependable, and well-suited for laboratory use, providing unequaled environmental control. They offer a temperature range of 2℃ to 50℃, and greater temperature ranges can be achieved through optional upgrades to construction.
  • Stability Test Chambers — Our stability test chambers not only meet, but exceed FDA and ICH standards. Thousands of our stability chambers are currently in use by many pharmaceutical, cosmetic, nutraceutical, medical device, therapeutic pharmaceuticals, pharmaceutical stress testing, and other research purposes both in Columbia, SC and globally. Other popular stability options include stability refrigerators and stability freezers.
  • Concrete Curing Chambers — These are ideal for adhering to the strict testing guidelines of concrete, asphalt, and related industries. Unlike most of "testing" apparatus available to control temperature/humidity for engineering demands, these chambers offer unmatched construction and results.
  • Altitude Test Rooms — We work alongside Colorado Altitude Training (CAT) in Boulder, Colorado, to offer a one-of-a-kind chamber for altitude simulation. Our units can reduce the oxygen content from 20.9% to 15.2%, while keeping the pressure unchanged. Our altitude chambers have been used by the U.S Olympic Committee, Harvard University, Doha Sports Hospital, College of William and Mary, Mayo Clinic, Ironman World Champions among others.
  • Freeze/Thaw Test Chambers — These chambers are well-suited for Columbia, SC companies looking for ramp/soak controls. These chambers allow you to study if your product will remain stable under various conditions. During the freeze/thaw cycle your subject is put through a series of extreme temperature fluctuations that it may be subject to 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 well-suited for ASTM materials testing, as well as testing for medication, food and beverage, and personal care products. Freezing and thawing capabilities range from -25℃ to 50℃.
  • Heated-Humidified Incubators/Ovens Our HH Series of units can be utilized as pharmaceutical stress test chambers at 50C/75%RH. Temperatures range from 5℃ to 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 significantly decreases required maintenance expenses.
