Drosophila Chambers

Drosophila Chambers

Percival Scientific offers several sizes and configurations specifically designed for Drosophila research.

This chamber is frequently used for Drosophila melanogaster, mosquitos and other insect rearing research. Many other applications exist for this product such as simple/low cost germination and other lighted applications.
There are many options for these chambers including additional humidity and ethernet connection. Customizable options including different size chambers are also available if these don’t suit your parameters.

Shelving White epoxy coated steel wire
shelving. Each shelf is 27” D x 28 3/4” W (69.2 cm x 73.0
cm). Shelves slide in and out easily on stainless steel rail
assemblies (at lower elevation only). When shelves are not
mounted on rail assemblies they are vertically adjustable in
1/2” increments.The maximum growing height is 20 3/4”
(52.7 cm) per tier.
Finish Interior and exterior painted with highly reflective,
environmentally friendly, high temperature baked white powder
Refrigeration Self-contained air-cooled condensing
unit with hot gas bypass system for continuous compressor
operation, extended life and close temperature control. This
continous running condensing unit ensures precise temperature
control by alternately cycling refrigerant and hot gas to
the coil; this also prolongs the life of the compressor, and
eliminates the risk of ice build up in the coil. Solenoid
valves have an extended stem for quiet and long life operation.
Evaporator coil is ceiling mounted and incorporates
twin air circulation fans in an aluminum housing. Heat rejection
to ambient (standard chamber) =4500 BTU/hr.
Temperature Safety Limit Controls
(Experiment Protection) Adjustable high and low temperature
controls, audible alarms and visual indicators are provided.
The controls shutdown all the power to the chamber,
and activates alarms. When the temperature returns to the
normal range the system will automatically reset.
Humidity Control (optional) Additive humidity control
of higher than ambient to 65% (± 10%) lights on for set
temperatures between 20° to 30° C. Humidity control of
higher than ambient to 90% (± 10%) lights off for temperatures
between 15° to 30° C. Extended humidity ranges available.
