DRS20- ONE DOOR DROSOPHILA INCUBATOR

 

The DRS20-drosophila incubator/ fruit fly rearing chamber is specifically designed for drosophila or fruit fly rearing application. DRS20 offers a comfortable and controlled environment for breeding, rearing, incubating or experimenting with various insects. The incubator is used by scientists in many research areas, from genomics to clinical epidemiology and species conservation. This chamber not only can be used in drosophila research but also in many types of insect growing projects.

Chamber features all stainless steel interior and exterior construction with 2″ polyurethane CFC free insulation.

Cabinet standard features

  • Stainless Steel Exterior & Interior
  • Maintains temperatures between 18°c to 32°c with %RH option
  • LED interior light with diurnal timer
  • Recessed Door Handle
  • Door locks standard
  • Magnetic door gasket standard for positive door seal
  • Pre-Installed 4″casters with bumber brakes
  • Three (3) Pre-Installed shelves per section
  • 2″ access port
  • Back wall plenum for even distribution of conditioned air

Chamber uses thermoelectric assembly for heating and cooling. This type of cooling/heating system completely eliminates need for conventional refrigeration system and failures due to mechanical components such as compressors thereby drastically increasing the life expectancy of each chamber. Maintenance cost is also lowered by the thermoelectric/Peltier driven heating/cooling system. The chamber is quiet  while in operation. Chamber temperature set points are tightly controlled using PID controller. Relative humidity set points are achieved via additive ultrasonic humidification.  

 Temperature control features:

  • Control/Alarm monitor via app (Watlow model)
  • Simplifies Controller Management with Easy-to-Operate Graphic User Interface,LED display, Autotune capability
  • Provides Access to Advanced Scripting Capabilities
  • Save Controller Parameters
  • Access Stored Parameters
  • Log Controller Data
  • Control access via software
  • 2 programmable alarm
  • IP-65 Panel (front panel splash proof)
  • CRC protocol correction build in for error free communication
  • Visually interpret thermal data
  • Set multiple target temperatures and program steps for advanced applications like thermal cycling
  • Save and load script parameters from stored files on your disk drive
  • Multiple jumps and loops function for complex testing profile
  • *Note: We offer 2 controller models- Not all features may be available in one controller- Please specify your controller requirements to sales associate.

 Humidity control features(optional):

       

    •  Humidity control features
      • Ultrasonic humidification- this method of humidification eliminates hotspots inside chamber and provides uniform relative humidity setup
      • Microprocessor based humidity control. Tight control up to 0.5% available and humidity uniformity of 3%.
      • Standard controller features LED display of SV/PV and provides tight control of relative humidity.
      • Programmable alarm features via controller.
      • Humidifier and humidity controller is integrated with various safety features designed.
    • 3% accuracy over the entire input range
    • Displays both the set point and actual relative humidity
    • On/off controller is  standard. if you need PID controller with tighter control up to 1% RH- please contact us.
    • A fast response, capacitive relative humidity sensor is included. It has high accuracy, high reliability, consistency
    • Dual alarm outputs with 10+ activation methods/situation
    • High brightness, large LED display – easily read from distance
  • LED Displays both the set point and actual relative humidity
  • A fast response, capacitive relative humidity sensor is included. It has high accuracy, high reliability, consistency
  • Dual alarm outputs with 10+ activation methods/situation
  • High brightness, large LED display – easily read from distance
  • Manual, technical support and 1 year warranty.
