Mosquito Cages    Controlled Environment Chamber

Catalog #41530

 

The CEC allows the housing of small animals and insects in a microbiological environment that can operate at a BSL-3. The equipment can control temperature, humidity, and C02.

 

All doors and openings have mechanical devices for seal compression. The cages are removable and have waste pans. All chamber doors and windows are made of tempered glass.

 

Chambers and cages can be made to accommodate several species of animals. Various sizes are available.

 

Air entering and exiting the chamber passes through a carbon pre-filter and HEPA filter.

 

The air that exits the rear of the chamber passes through a special housing. The special housing contains a fan to move the air, environmental sensing, temperature control, and humidity introduction. The adjusted air is then reintroduced into the front of the chamber.

 

The Chamber operates with a slight negative pressure so any leakage is inward.

 

Controls are mounted on a cart which can be easily separated from the chamber for sanitization.
