Rodent Incubators

Posted on Oct 12, 2012 in Featured, Insect or Rodent Incubators

 

Two door Rodent incubator RIS70SD with chart recorderThese chambers offer a temperature and lighting controlled environment with 0-15 fresh air exchanges per hour (adjustable). The chambers have a temperature range of 6.5-50°C, and this flexibility makes our incubators perfect for housing many species of caged rodents or other small animals. For example, rats, mice and squirrels have all been housed in our incubators. Our chambers are built to order, allowing the individual researcher to tailor the incubator to fit the required parameters without paying for features that aren’t needed.

Rodent IncubatorEach incubator comes equipped with features such as clock-controlled lighting, solid doors, an interior outlet and access port, doors locks, an audible/visual alarm with relay, stainless steel construction, and casters. Many other options are available, including additional lighting or LED lighting, dual or multi-point temperature control for temperature stressing, vibration reduction, top-mounted or remote compressors, extra-deep sizes, or RS-232 or data retransmit outputs.

Please see our Accessories page for a complete list of available options.

Drosophila & Small Insect Chambers

Posted on Oct 12, 2012 in Insect or Rodent Incubators

Drosophila fly or mosquito incubator level 3

Drosophila chambers offer a comfortable and controlled environment for breeding, rearing, incubating or experimenting with various insects. Species that are commonly raised in our insect growth chambers include Drosophila melanogaster (the common fruit fly), mosquitos, and sand flies. These chambers have a 15-60°C temperature range, with a digital temperature control and display. This temperature flexibility allows our incubators to be used in the rearing of many different types of insects, not just fruit flies and mosquitos.

Temperature failsafes are included to protect the chamber in the unlikely event of a temperature excursion. Casters, epoxy-coated wire shelves and a 60°C mite cycle are standard features on all models. In addition, there are two types of refrigeration systems to choose from: a standard R134A vapor cycle with an Electrofin coated coil, or a thermoelectric (Peltier) cooler. Additionally, there are many available options to customize the chamber to meet your specific needs. See our Accessories page for a complete list of these options.

Since different insect species demand differing levels of temperature/humidity/lighting for proper growth, and because every researcher’s needs are different, three levels of parameter control are offered on most chambers. When requesting a price quotation, please specify the model and level of the incubator that interests you.
