What Are Test Chambers?

Test chambers are specially constructed boxes or cabinets used to how extreme conditions affect test subjects. The controlled environment of a test chamber allows scientists to accurately replicate conditions while keeping a close eye on the specimen. Charles F. Conrad invented the first environmental test chamber on his front porch in Holland, MI in 1951, by redesigning his home freezer to allow for temperatures as low as -125℉. He sold it to General Motors Heat Treat Lab, who quickly ordered two more.

In the decades that have followed, hundreds of manufacturers have invented test chambers that simulate more than just cold, from extreme heat, humidity or dust-filled environments.

One of the main advantages of using test chambers is that they allow for very precise control of the environment. This means that Philadelphia, PA 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 Philadelphia, PA

Darwin Chambers first introduced our stability chambers to the Philadelphia, PA community in 2003 as the first large-capacity thermoelectric-cooled pharmaceutical test chambers. We've been coming up with more creative solutions ever since, 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 Philadelphia, PA are:

  • Environmental Test Chambers — One of Darwin Chambers' top-selling units, our environmental chambers are quiet, easy to clean, extremely reliable, and well-suited for laboratory use, providing unrivaled environmental control. They offer a temperature range of 2℃ to 50℃, and more extreme temperatures are possible through upgrades at extra cost.
  • Stability Test Chambers — Our stability test chambers are made to exceed FDA and ICH guidelines. 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 Philadelphia, PA and around the world. We also offer stability refrigerators and stability freezers.
  • Material Test/Cure Chambers — These are well-suited for adhering to the strict testing guidelines of concrete, asphalt, and other hard surfaces. Contrary to most of "testing" currently on the market, these chambers offer unmatched construction and results.
  • Altitude Test Rooms — We work alongside Colorado Altitude Training (CAT), located in Boulder, Colorado, to offer a unique chamber for altitude simulation. Our system can replicate 9,000 feet at sea level, 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, Pro cycling Team and many more.
  • Freeze/Thaw Test Chambers — These units are well-suited for Philadelphia, PA companies who require ramp/soak programming. These units allow you to determine if your product will remain stable under various conditions. During the freeze/thaw cycle your subject undergoes a series of extreme temperature fluctuations that it may encounter during its lifespan. 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 ideal for ASTM materials testing, as well as testing for drugs, food and beverage, and cosmetic products. They have a temperature range of -25℃ to 50℃.
  • Heated-Humidified Incubators/Ovens Our HH Series of units are ideal for pharmaceutical stress testing 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 proprietary ultrasonic humidification system eliminates hot spots in the chamber and greatly decreases required operational costs.
