DRS40-Drosophila incubator/drosophila rearing chamber offers a controlled environment for breeding, rearing, incubating or experimenting with various insects.DRS40-Drosophila Incubator is used by scientists in many research areas, from genomics to clinical epidemiology and species conservation. This chamber not only can be used in drosophila research but also in many types of insect growing projects.
DRS40- Drosophila incubator features all stainless steel interior and exterior construction with 2″ polyurethane CFC free insulation and has many standard features that are only available as options elsewhere.

DRS40 Drosophila incubator 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 set points are tightly controlled using PID controller. Relative humidity set points are achieved via additive ultrasonic humidification.
