The DRS3-Bench top incubator offers exceptional temperature and humidity control and  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 where researchers are constrained by laboratory space. This chamber is ideal to conduct research at home or laboratory.The chamber is equipped with temperature, humidity(optional) and light control.

The DRS3- Bench top incubator features a unique double shell-filled with commercial-grade polyurethane material for optimal insulation. Inlaid sealing ring and nylon latch for enhanced seal/performance. The chamber is made out of LLPDE material shell.

The DRS3-bench top incubator comes with 12 molded slots. We provide 2 wire shelves with each chamber. Additional shelves are available for purchase. Shelves can support up to 25lbs distributed load. The Chamber comes with 2 hidden molded handles that enables users to move the chamber with ease. The chamber is also stackable without additional parts.

The DRS3- Bench top incubator uses thermoelectric assembly for heating and cooling. The DRS3 offers a comfortable and controlled environment for breeding, rearing, incubating or experimenting with various insects.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 (less than 55dba) while in operation. Chamber temperature setpoints are tightly controlled using PID controller. Relative humidity set points are achieved via additive ultrasonic humidification. A humidifier is mounted on the back of the chamber. Refer to humidifier manual for maintenance and water line hook up.
