What Are Test Chambers?

Test chambers are specially constructed boxes, of various sizes, used to how certain conditions affect test subjects. The controlled environment of a test chamber allows scientists to accurately replicate conditions that would be otherwise challenging to replicate in a lab. Charles F. Conrad invented the first environmental test chamber on his front porch in Holland, MI in 1951, by modifying a residential freezer to reach temperatures as low as -87℃. General Motors Heat Treat Lab decided to buy it, and quickly ordered two more.

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.

In addition to temperature and humidity, test chambers can also be used to control other aspects of the environment, such as air pressure, atmospheric composition, and even electromagnetic fields. By controlling several different environmental factors, St. Paul, MN researchers can create environments that they wouldn't be able to duplicate outside of a test chamber.

Types of Test Chambers in St. Paul, MN

Darwin Chambers first sold our stability chambers to St. Paul, MN researchers in 2003 as the first large-capacity thermoelectric-cooled pharmaceutical test chambers. We've been innovating ever since, incorporating our technologies and our and expansive knowledge to deliver precise and reliable chambers that are perfect for researchers no matter what they're studying. A few of our most popular test chambers in St. Paul, MN are:

  • Environmental Test Chambers — One of Darwin Chambers' most popular units, our environmental chambers are quiet, easy to clean, highly reliable, and ideal for laboratory use, offering unparalleled temperature and humidity control. They offer a temperature range of 2℃ to 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 requirements. Our stability chambers are trusted in numerous different industries, including pharmaceutical, cosmetic, nutraceutical, medical device, therapeutic pharmaceuticals, pharmaceutical stress testing, and other research purposes both in St. Paul, MN and around the world. Other popular stability options include stability refrigerators and stability freezers.
  • Material Test/Cure Chambers — These are great for the rigors of precision temperature and humidity control in concrete, asphalt, and related industries. Contrary to the vast majority of "testing" unit available to control temperature/humidity for engineering needs, these chambers provide reliable operation, durable construction, and accurate results. The MC Series offers serious performance to St. Paul, MN engineers and researchers looking for serious 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 units can reduce the oxygen levels 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 Olympic Committee, Harvard University, Doha Sports Hospital, College of William and Mary, Mayo Clinic, Ironman World Champions among others.
  • Freeze/Thaw Test Chambers — These chambers are ideal for St. Paul, MN researchers who require ramp/soak capabilities. These units permit you to determine if your product will remain stable under various conditions. During the freeze/thaw cycle your product experiences numerous different temperature fluctuations that it may be subject to 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 well-suited for ASTM materials testing, as well as testing for prescriptions, food and beverage, and cosmetic products. They have a temperature range of -25℃ to 50℃.
  • Heated-Humidified Incubators/Ovens Our HH Series chambers 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 superior control and uniformity. Our own ultrasonic humidification system eliminates hot spots within the unit and significantly reduces required operational expenses.
