Insect Rearing Chambers
Insect rearing chambers provide scientists the means to raise and study insects within a controlled environment; aiding in both agricultural and general scientific research.
Robust systems are required in the insect rearing field. The climate control systems must be built to cope with acidic, high humidity air; which would corrode and degrade a conventional system quickly.
Biora’s range of insect growth chambers, including walk-in rooms and reach-in units, will guarantee reliable results across a wide variety of entomological studies.
Insect Rearing Rooms from Biora offer a portable, walk-in solution for active experimentation or housing stock. These Walk-In Chambers provide scientists with the ability to extend their research capabilities, whilst still meeting rigid lab requirements.
Insect Rearing Reach-In Chambers from Biora are available in sizes from 600L to 500L. They come standard with vertical T8 lights on all four sides of the unit, with shelving and atmospheric control options to best suit the conditions required.
Insect Rearing in Entomological Studies
The ability to produce insects has a significant impact on human lives across a range of areas, including but not limited to pest management, human and veterinary medicine, insect production for food and nutrient supplements. It is relevant across a wide array of scientific research, such as microbiology, life sciences and biologic culture incubation.
One example in which insect rearing is particularly important is the research into the protection of crops against Drosophila (Fruit Fly). Protection against fruit fly and other pest species is often the difference between a good harvest and a failed one.
Insects have highly varied habits and habitats. Their size ranges from a millimetre to over a hand span long and their food and feeding habits are equally variable. Insects are known to occur in subzero temperatures to the inhospitable hot springs. Due to such variation, insects rearing requires specific conditions for different species.
