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 precise environmental settings 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 on his front porch in Holland, MI in 1951, by modifying his home freezer to allow for temperatures of -87℃. He sold it to General Motors Heat Treat Lab, who quickly ordered two more.

Since then, hundreds of manufacturers have innovated test chambers that simulate more than just cold, from extreme heat, humidity or replicating various altitudes.

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 these factors, State College, PA researchers can create environments that would be impossible to duplicate outside of a test chamber.

Types of Test Chambers in State College, PA

Darwin Chambers initially sold our stability chambers to State College, PA researchers over 20 years ago as the original large-capacity thermoelectric-cooled pharmaceutical test chambers. We've been innovating ever since, incorporating our technologies and our skills to deliver chambers that researchers in any field can count on. A few of our most popular test chambers in State College, PA are:

  • Environmental Test Chambers — One of our top-selling units, our environmental chambers are quiet enough to keep in a work setting, easy to clean, highly reliable, and ideal for laboratory use, providing unequaled precisions. Standard units 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 standards. 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 State College, PA and around the globe. Other popular stability options include stability refrigerators and stability freezers.
  • Material Test/Cure Chambers — These are ideal for the harshness of exact temperature and humidity control in concrete, asphalt, and related industries. Unlike the vast majority of "testing" currently on the market, these chambers offer unmatched construction and results.
  • Altitude Test Chambers — We work alongside Colorado Altitude Training (CAT), located in Boulder, Colorado, to offer a unique chamber for altitude simulation. Our system can replicate over 2,700 meters at sea level, while the pressure stays the same. Our altitude chambers have been used by the U.S Olympic Committee, Harvard University, U.A.E., College of William and Mary, Mayo Clinic, Ironman World Champions among others.
  • Freeze/Thaw Test Chambers — These chambers are perfect for State College, PA researchers who require ramp/soak programming. These chambers allow you to determine how your product will hold up under extreme conditions. During the freeze/thaw cycle your subject is put through numerous different temperature fluctuations that it may be subject to during its life cycle. You can easily change the temperatures, duration of testing, and how many cycles are performed each day. These Freeze Thaw chambers are great for ASTM materials testing, as well as testing for pharmaceuticals, food and beverage, and personal care products. Freezing and thawing capabilities range from -25℃ to 50℃.
  • Heated-Humidified Incubators/Ovens Our HH Series of units 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 maximum efficiency and cost-effectiveness. Our exclusive ultrasonic humidification system eliminates hot spots within the unit and greatly reduces required operational expenses.
