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 controlled environment of a test chamber allows researchers to accurately replicate conditions while keeping a close eye on the specimen. Charles F. Conrad designed the first environmental test chamber in 1951, after working as a refrigerator repairman, by purposing a residential freezer to allow for temperatures as low as -125℉. General Motors Heat Treat Lab decided to purchase it, and quickly asked Conrad to make two more.

In the years that have followed, hundreds of manufacturers have innovated 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 Minneapolis, MN researchers can be sure that the results of their experiments are not affected by factors that they are not testing for.

Different Kinds of Test Chambers in Minneapolis, MN

Darwin Chambers initially sold our stability chambers to Minneapolis, MN researchers 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 skills 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 Minneapolis, MN are:

  • Environmental Test Chambers — One of Darwin Chambers' top-selling chambers, our environmental chambers are quiet enough to keep in a work setting, easy to clean, repair, and upgrade, highly reliable, and ideal for laboratory use, offering unrivaled temperature and humidity control. Standard units offer a temperature range of 2℃ to 50℃, and more extreme temperatures can be reached through upgrades at extra cost.
  • Stability Test Chambers — Our stability test chambers are designed to surpass FDA and ICH regulations. Thousands of our stability chambers are currently in use by many pharmaceutical, cosmetic, nutraceutical, medical device, therapeutic pharmaceuticals, pharmaceutical stress testing, and other research companies both in Minneapolis, MN and globally. We also offer stability refrigerators and stability freezers.
  • Concrete Curing 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 most of "testing" currently on the market, these chambers offer unmatched construction and results.
  • Altitude Test Rooms — We have teamed up with Colorado Altitude Training (CAT) in Boulder, Colorado, to offer a unique chamber for altitude simulation. Our system can replicate over 2,700 meters of elevation, while keeping the pressure consistent. Our altitude testing units have been used by numerous well-known clients, including 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 chambers are ideal for Minneapolis, MN companies looking for ramp/soak capabilities. These chambers permit you to see how your product will react under extreme conditions. During the freeze/thaw cycle your subject experiences numerous different temperature fluctuations that it may encounter 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 pharmaceuticals, food and beverage, and cosmetic products. Temperatures can extend from -25℃ to 50℃.
  • Heated-Humidified Incubators/Ovens Our HH Series of units can be used as pharmaceutical stress test chambers 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 does not allow for hot spots in the chamber and significantly reduces required operational expenses.
