The IRCGDM glass door insect rearing chamber is used by scientists in many research areas, from genomics to clinical epidemiology and species conservation. This particular insect rearing 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. All units have in-built redundant thermoeletric(TE) units.The TE units have optional Phenolic coating to make it corrosion resistantChamber features standard safety features like high and low temperature and humidity alarm, high temp cut off switch, alarm notification at controller. We offer free same day quotes on our chamber and offer very competitive price without comprising features.

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 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.

  • 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 refer to controller spec.sheet

Humidity control features:             

    •  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.
    • 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 distanci
