Test chambers are specially constructed boxes or cabinets used to how particular conditions affect 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 invented the first environmental test chamber on his front porch in Holland, MI in 1951, by modifying his personal freezer to reach temperatures of -125℉. He sold it to General Motors Heat Treat Lab, who quickly ordered two more. Since then, 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 Pittsburgh, PA researchers can be confident the integrity of their research. Different Kinds of Test Chambers in Pittsburgh, PA Darwin Chambers first introduced our stability chambers to Pittsburgh, PA 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 and expansive knowledge to deliver precise and reliable chambers that are ideal for researchers no matter what they're studying. A few of our most popular test chambers in Pittsburgh, PA include: Environmental Test Chambers — One of Darwin Chambers' most popular products, our environmental chambers are quiet, easy to clean, extremely reliable, and ideal for laboratory use, providing unequaled precisions. Standard units can reach temperatures as low as 2℃ or as high as 50℃, and greater temperature ranges can be achieved through optional upgrades to components. Stability Test Chambers — Our stability test chambers not only meet, but exceed 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 Pittsburgh, PA and globally. We also offer stability refrigerators and stability freezers. Material Test/Cure Chambers — These are well-suited for the rigors of precision temperature and humidity control in concrete, asphalt, and related industries. Unlike the vast majority of "testing" system available to control temperature/humidity for engineering needs, these chambers offer unmatched construction and results. Altitude Test Chambers — We partner with Colorado Altitude Training (CAT), located in Boulder, Colorado, to offer a state-of-the-art unit for altitude simulation. Our system can reduce the oxygen content from 20.9% to 15.2%, while the pressure stays the same. Our altitude testing units have been used by numerous well-known clients, including the U.S. Speed Skating Team, Harvard University, U.A.E., College of William and Mary, Mayo Clinic, Ironman World Champions and many more. Freeze/Thaw Test Chambers — These units are well-suited for Pittsburgh, PA scientists who need ramp/soak controls. These units allow you to see how your product will hold up under various conditions. During the freeze/thaw cycle your subject undergoes 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 ideal for ASTM materials testing, as well as testing for drugs, food and beverage, and cosmetic 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. 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 own ultrasonic humidification system does not allow for hot spots within the unit and significantly decreases required operational costs.
