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 while being able to get exact readings. Charles F. Conrad invented 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 -87℃. General Motors Heat Treat Lab decided to purchase it, and quickly ordered 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.

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

Different Kinds of Test Chambers in Houston, TX

Darwin Chambers initially introduced our stability chambers to Houston, TX researchers over 20 years ago as the first 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 count on. Some of our most popular test chambers in Houston, TX include:

  • Environmental Test Chambers — One of Darwin Chambers' best-selling units, our environmental chambers are quiet enough to keep in a work setting, easy to clean, highly reliable, and perfect for laboratory use, offering unparalleled temperature and humidity control. They can reach temperatures as low as 2℃ or as high as 50℃, and more extreme temperatures can be reached through upgrades at extra cost.
  • Stability Test Chambers — Our stability test chambers not only meet, but surpass FDA and ICH regulations. 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 Houston, TX and around the globe. Other popular stability options include 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 related industries. Contrary to the vast majority of "testing" currently on the market, these chambers provide dependable operation, durable construction, and accurate results. The MC Series offers serious performance to Houston, TX engineers and researchers looking for serious results.
  • Altitude Test Chambers — We partner with Colorado Altitude Training (CAT) in Boulder, Colorado, to offer an unmatched room for altitude simulation. Our system can reduce the oxygen levels 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, Doha Sports Hospital, College of William and Mary, Mayo Clinic, Ironman World Champions and many more.
  • Freeze/Thaw Test Chambers — These are well-suited for Houston, TX scientists who need ramp/soak capabilities. These chambers permit you to determine if your product will remain stable under various conditions. During the freeze/thaw cycle your subject experiences a series of extreme temperature fluctuations 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 well-suited for ASTM materials testing, as well as testing for drugs, food and beverage, and personal care 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. Temperatures range from 5℃ to 70℃, and offer standard control at the sensor of ±0.2℃ and ±0.3%RH. Our proprietary ultrasonic humidification system does not allow for hot spots within the unit and significantly reduces required operational expenses.
