STEQ America is proud to offer the constant climate chamber HPP series, manufactured by the industry leader for laboratory equipment, Memmert. This constant climate chamber series is tailored to environmental simulation, material testing, and stability testing in accordance with ICH guidelines. The HPP750life is a constant climate chamber specifically for keeping mice, zebrafish and other life sciences. It offers effective and efficient dehumidification of the chamber by means of compressed air for safe and stable humidity values in compliance with GV Solas guidelines.
In order to guarantee the recommended humidity of between 45 and 65% rh for the humane keeping of mice even at low temperatures, Memmert has made this product with an integrated compressed air drying unit. For simulation of the day and night rhythm, the LED illumination can be programmed using the AtmoCONTROL software. Additional programming and documenting processes can also be completed through AtmoCONTROL's comprehensive software which allows you to easily create even the most complex ramp programs by dragging and dropping graphical symbols for your desired parameters. Adjust your program values according to your needs with the click of a mouse.
Peltier technology in the HPP series enables stable and precise long-term tests. Heating and cooling is performed in a single system: if a voltage is placed across a Peltier element, one side is cooled and the opposite side simultaneously heats up. The leading exemplar of economical, energy is only used if heating or cooling is required. The low-vibration of Peltier technology also ensures the animals are not disturbed within the chamber.
Beautiful and functional, the HPP750life constant climate chamber is made of Memmert’s scratch resistant stainless steel which is also hygienic, robust, and ever-lasting.
What makes the HPP750life special?
Humans and animals are highly adaptable. A healthy body adjusts to changing environmental conditions and sources of food without any problems. At the Institute for Molecular Nutritional Medicine at the Technical University of Munich, the question as to why the energy balance in some mammals gets into difficulties, subsequently leading to being overweight or underweight, or diabetes type II, is being examined on the model organism of the mouse. The mice are kept under controlled conditions, in two Memmert constant climate chambers specifically adapted for their keeping.
The HPPlife chambers feature:
• An air exchange rate which can be controlled by adjusting the speed of the exhaust air motor
• Program controlled LED light strips (on max. 3 levels), adjustable in steps of 1% (6,500 K cold white
or 2,700 K warm white); adjustment angle of 45°
• Developed in cooperation with the Institute for Molecular Nutritional Medicine of the Technical
University of Munich headed by Prof. Dr. Klingenspor
In conventional heating ovens, mice and rats can only be kept at room temperature or warmer, since air exchange in combination with cooling and dehumidification usually poses a problem. This "mobile" solution offers minimal footprint and enables freshwater for humidity control to be supplied via water tanks or alternatively via a central water supply system. A cleanroom is the ideal installation site for the climate chamber.
