What Are Test Chambers?

Test chambers are enclosed spaces used to how particular conditions affect products or biological specimens. The precise environmental settings of a test chamber allows scientists to accurately replicate conditions while keeping a close eye on the specimen. Charles F. Conrad innovated 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 buy it, and quickly ordered two more.

In the decades that have followed, test chambers have been designed and used to simulate a wide range of conditions, from extreme cold and 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 San Francisco, CA researchers can be sure that the results of their experiments are not affected by factors that they are not testing for.

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 are designed to 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 San Francisco, CA and around the globe. Other popular stability options include stability refrigerators and stability freezers.
  • Material Test/Cure Chambers — These are great for the rigors of exact temperature and humidity control in concrete, asphalt, and other materials common in construction and engineering. Contrary to the vast majority of "testing" currently on the market, these chambers provide reliable operation, durable construction, and accurate results. The MC Series offers serious performance to San Francisco, CA engineers and researchers looking for serious results.
  • Altitude Test Rooms — We have teamed up with Colorado Altitude Training (CAT) in Boulder, Colorado, to offer an unmatched room for altitude simulation. Our units 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, U.A.E., College of William and Mary, Mayo Clinic, Tour de France winners among others.
  • Freeze/Thaw Test Chambers — These are well-suited for San Francisco, CA scientists who require ramp/soak programming. These units allow you to see if your product will remain stable under extreme conditions. During the freeze/thaw cycle your product experiences a series of extreme temperature changes 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 prescriptions, 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 used 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 eliminates hot spots within the unit and greatly decreases required operational expenses.
