Reach-in Drosophila Incubator

 

Canden Drosophila incubator offer a comfortable and controlled environment for breeding, rearing, incubating or experimenting with various insects. Chamber is equipped with PID controller capable of maintaining tight control over the entire temperature range. The controller displays both process value and set value- enabling users to keep tabs on real time chamber process and set point.

Canden drosophila incubator uses high performance thermoelectric coolers which enables the incubator to maintain set points with relative ease. The control system includes a unique electronic board which enables bidirectional control over the thermoelectric system. This system is easier to replace and maintain.

Canden drosophila rearing chamber have an optional additive humidity. Humidification is done via ultrasonic humidifier and a controller that displays both process and set value.

Chamber specs:

Temperature: 18°c to 32°c

Relative Humidity: 50% to 80%RH ( additive humidification only)

Cabinet construction(20,40 & GDM series):

Standard feature include:

  • Top Mount thermoelectric and control system for ease of use and service
  • Premium Stainless Steel Exterior & Interior which enables easier cleaning and maintenance
  • LED interior lights
  • Recessed Door Handles
  • Door locks
  • Magnetic door gaskets standard for positive door seal
  • Pre-Installed casters
  • Three (3) Pre-Installed shelves per section
  • Back wall plenum to ensure uniform distribution of conditioned air
  • 2″ access port
  • 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 (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.
