The DRSGDM2-Drosophila incubator has a full length glass door and it is used by scientists in many research areas, from genomics to clinical epidemiology and species conservation. The DRSGDM2- Drosophila incubator can be used in drosophila research and in many types of insect growing projects. The chamber is equipped with temperature, humidity(optional) and light control.The TE units have optional Phenolic coating to make it corrosion resistant

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

Cabinet standard features

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. A humidifier is mounted on the back of the chamber. Refer to humidifier manual for maintenance and water line hook up.

      • 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
  • %RH resolution- 0.1%- displays PV/SV.
  • Access controller via app remotely
  • Export data in csv format
  • Control type-on/off, 4%RH accuracy with high/low %RH alarms
  • App offers Temp vs %RH graph
  • Smooth app to control transition without being physically in-front of chamber.
