Test Chambers in Vancouver, BC

Test Chambers in Vancouver, BC. Also known as environmental test chambers, test chambers are necessary for researchers in a variety of fields who seek to test the integrity of their products or specimens. You need to be sure that they can maintain their integrity extreme conditions they may be subject to in the real world. Since 2003, Darwin Chambers has been the preferred controlled environment manufacturers for many Vancouver, BC scientists. If you're looking for test chambers, speak to a Darwin representative at your earliest convenience at (314) 534-3111 or contact us online.

What Are Test Chambers?

Test chambers are enclosed spaces used to conduct scientific experiments or test the effects of environmental conditions on test subjects. The controlled environment of a test chamber allows scientists to accurately replicate conditions that would be otherwise difficult or impossible to replicate in the real world. Charles F. Conrad designed the first environmental test chamber in 1951, after working as a refrigerator repairman, by purposing his personal freezer to allow for temperatures of -125℉. General Motors Heat Treat Lab decided to buy it, and quickly asked Conrad to produce two more.

Ever since, hundreds of manufacturers have invented test chambers that simulate more than just cold, from extreme heat, humidity or dust-filled 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, Vancouver, BC researchers can create environments that they wouldn't be able to duplicate outside of a test chamber.

Different Kinds of Test Chambers in Vancouver, BC

Darwin Chambers first introduced our stability chambers to Vancouver, BC 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 precise and reliable chambers that are perfect for researchers no matter what they're studying. Some of our best-selling test chambers in Vancouver, BC are:

  • Environmental Test Chambers — One of Darwin Chambers' best-selling chambers, our environmental chambers are quiet, easy to clean, repair, and upgrade, highly reliable, and perfect for laboratory use, offering unparalleled temperature and humidity control. They can reach temperatures as low as 2℃ or as high as 50℃, and greater temperature ranges can be reached through optional upgrades to components.
  • Stability Test Chambers — Our stability test chambers are designed to surpass 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 purposes both in Vancouver, BC and globally. 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 related industries. Unlike most of "testing" system available to control temperature/humidity for engineering demands, these chambers offer reliable operation, durable construction, and accurate results. The MC Series offers serious performance to Vancouver, BC engineers and researchers looking for serious results.
  • Altitude Test Chambers — We have teamed up with Colorado Altitude Training (CAT), located 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. Speed Skating Team, Harvard University, Doha Sports Hospital, College of William and Mary, Mayo Clinic, Tour de France winners among others.
  • Freeze/Thaw Test Chambers — These units are perfect for Vancouver, BC researchers who need ramp/soak capabilities. These units permit you to determine if your product will remain stable under various conditions. During the freeze/thaw cycle your subject is put through a series of extreme temperature fluctuations that it might encounter 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 medication, food and beverage, and personal care 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. Temperatures range from 5℃ to 70℃, and offer superior control and uniformity. Our proprietary ultrasonic humidification system eliminates hot spots within the unit and significantly reduces required operational costs.
