Insect Rearing Vancouver, BC - Insect Rearing Chambers and Incubators in Vancouver, BC

Vancouver, BC Insect Rearing

Our versatile line of insect rearing chambers has been specifically designed to provide the best possible atmosphere for studying drosophila (fruit flies), mosquitos, and other insects. Insect rearing chambers are made to breed, rear, incubate, and observe any insect you are studying in Vancouver, BC. With the meticulous temperature controls and the quality construction, our insect rearing chambers are meant for use in countless additional capacities beyond the study of insects in Vancouver, BC.

In addition to the precise manipulation and consistent control of the temperature, humidity, and light within the chamber, our engineers have designed our insect rearing product lines with special considerations for which more general chambers do not account.

Due to our in-depth knowledge of the needs involved in insect research, our engineers have been able to design insect rearing systems that prioritize:

  • Ease of cleaning
  • Ability to shut down all heat-producing and cold-producing equipment in emergency situations
  • Decontamination abilities
  • Nearly silent noise levels
  • Easy programming
  • resistance to corrosion

Darwin’s Insect Rearing Chamber Features

For insect rearing rooms and containers, the cooling system is one of the major issues. Darwin Chambers’ thermoelectric cooling technology allows for reliable cooling, solid construction, and is energy efficient by functioning without the need to cycle or run at full capacity, which many competitors’ cooling systems must. The primary limit of thermoelectric cooling is the temperature range to which the system can cool. Our machines use several separate thermoelectric units. A byproduct of this is redundancy and a consistent temperature. In an emergency, our chamber will still be able to maintain a consistent temperature.

In most research settings, there is no need for an insect rearing environment below 15 degrees Celsius. For situations that necessitate lower temperature capabilities, our low-temperature insect rearing chambers have a powerful, epoxy-coated condenser refrigeration system with a range of 2 to 50 degrees Celcius.

Cooling devices are protected from the inside of the chamber by a thick layer of sealed aluminum. This layer offers profection against the highly acidic substances that are often a part of Vancouver, BC insect rearing, sometimes as their form of food. High acidity is highly corrosive to some materials, so we rely on epoxy coating and thick stainless steel to protect your insect rearing chamber from damage.

The standard controls on our machines are made by Fuji Electric and are ideal for insect rearing chambers. The Fuji PxF4 PID Fuzzy Logic controller is found in thousands of commercial applications and has proven its reliability and performance abilities many times over.

Our insect rearing products come standard with many additional features that put our chambers ahead of our competitors. Primarily, our chambers are built using durable materials such as stainless steel wire shelving options and corrosion-resistant walls. Owners of our chambers also enjoy magnetic seal doors, a diurnal ramping and soaking cycle, and setpoints and high/low alarms that are simple to set with very little instruction required.

Types of Insect Rearing Products

The Darwin Chambers team has engineered a diverse range of Vancouver, BC insect rearing products that are all designed for the specific needs of an entomologist or any researcher who studies insect subjects. Choose from our reach-in models, insect rearing rooms, or low-temperature models. To discern the absolute best model for you, discuss with one of our eager-to-help expert associates.

Reach-In Insect Chambers – the IN series

Our IN series is credited as the first commercially manufactured large capacity thermoelectric-cooled insect rearing chamber, and there are thousands in use across the world today. The models range in size from benchtop to three-door full length.

Due to the omission of convensional refrigeration technologies, there is no need for expensive refrigeration servicing. Our reach-in chambers are are easy to service quickly and with minimal effort due to the simplicity of the components involved. Installation in Vancouver, BC is a breeze.

Walk-In Insect Chambers

Our walk-in chambers are available in whatever custom dimensions and specifications necessary for use within your Vancouver, BC facility. In addition to the standard features that are a part of all of our insect rearing chambers of any size, there are other features to consider when discussing our insect rearing rooms.

Because our walk-in rooms are, as the name implies, meant for the users to walk into, ADA complaince is a priority for us. We feel that anyone who needs to is able to access the room. The designs also feature epoxy-coated air handlers and finishes on exposed surfaces that protect against corrosion.

Considering the large scale of walk-in rooms, energy efficiency becomes a priority and a challenge. Precision Fluid Temperature Control Unit, or PFTCU, is our indirect cooling system that incorporates multiple refrigeration technologies. It leads competing technology in affordability and efficiency. In addition, LED lights within the chamber emit more light, produce less heat, and require less energy than fluorescent bulbs.

When people will be inside the chamber, safety is the top priority. Our Vancouver, BC insect rearing rooms come standard with safety features like an emergency alarm. An illuminated push-button within the chamber, glow-in-the-dark labeling, and a pull cord make up the personnel emergency alarm. It is both easy to engage and reset whenever necessary. When triggered, visual and audible alarms will sound – a feature that can halt emergency situations before they become even more dangerous.

Low-Temperature Insect Rearing Chambers – INR Series

Low-temperature insect rearing chambers reach lower temperatures than our other models and have advanced heat removal abilities. Our low temp models are best for environments where ambient conditions are extreme or difficult to control or when there is a live heat load. Research that necessitates rapid open door recovery times is best done using a low temp chamber.
