Insect rearing chamber:


Canden offers insect rearing/ Insect growth chamber that are specifically designed to grow and conduct research on different types of insects like Fruit fly (drosophila melanogaster), Insect incubator for mosquito growth.  The various insect rearing chambers manufactured by Canden products is used by scientists, researchers in raising insects, fruit fly, mosquitoes and various other insects.The Insect growth chamber is equipped with PID controller capable of maintaining tight control over the entire temperature range. All our Chamber features standard safety features like high and low temperature and humidity alarm, high temp cut off switch, alarm notification at controller.  The microprocessor based PID controller displays both process value and set value- enabling users to keep tabs on real time chamber process and set point. All units have 2-3 thermoelectric units to make sure precision temperature control inside the chamber. The TE units have optional Phenolic coating to make it corrosion resistant

All of Canden Insect growth reach-in chambers are capable of performing the following functions,

1. Heating and cooling incubators with temperature range from ( 2°c to 60°c)

2. Heated incubators with temperature range of 30°c to 60°c

3. Humidified incubators with temperature range of 10°c to 40°C and humidity range of  50% to 90% at certain operating dew points.

We have narrowed down that most of the standard insect rearing incubator operates in temperature range between 10°c to 40°c therefore we have published this temperature range as standard on all our insect growth models. If your research needs more wider range please let our sales associates know and we can widen the range of the chamber.

Canden insect incubator, growth chambers and drosophila incubators, mosquito growth chamber uses high performance thermoelectric coolers which enables the incubator to maintain set points with relative ease. The control system includes a unique electronic board and reliable solid state relays which enables bidirectional control over the thermoelectric system. This system is easier to replace and maintain.

Canden insect rearing/ insect growth chambers, insect incubator models have an optional additive humidity. Humidification is done via ultrasonic humidifier and a controller that displays both process and set value. Our top sellers include our one door growth chamber and two door growth chamber models(IRC20 & IRC 40). Canden also offers Bench-top insect growth chambers that can be stacked without any additional parts. The bench-top model is very popular among university research groups where space constraints exists .The easy stackable nature of chamber is very unique and useful.
