Constant climate chamber for keeping mice HPPlife

„Specific Pathogen Free” (SPF) keeping of mice and rats in compliance with GV Solas guidelines.

Climate chamber for keeping mice

Climate chamber for keeping mice as per GV Solas guidelines

In a Memmert climate chamber HPP750life mice can be kept in a “specific pathogen free” (SPF) state. Ideally the climate chamber is located in a clean room. In order to guarantee the recommended humidity of between 45 and 65 % rh for the humane keeping of mice even at low temperatures, Memmert integrated a compressed air drying unit. For simulation of the day and night rhythm, the LED illumination can be programmed using the AtmoCONTROL software.
  • Temperature range up to +70 ℃
  • 1 model size (749 litres volume)
  • Digitally controlled active humidification and dehumidification 10% up to 90%
  • Efficient dehumidification of the chamber by means of compressed air for safe and stable humidity values in compliance with GV Solas guidelines
  • Air exchange rate (max. 38 times per hour) can be controlled by adjusting the speed of the exhaust air motor
  • Programme controlled LED light strips (on 2 levels), adjustable in steps of 1 % (5,500 K cold white or 2,700 K warm white); adjustment angle 45°
  • Developed in cooperation with the Institute for Molecular Nutritional Medicine of the Technical University of Munich headed by Prof. Dr. Klingenspor

Controlled air exchange and humidity even at low temperatures

In a conventional heating oven, 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. Walk-in climate chambers with temperature and humidity control have the disadvantage that above all working at +30 °C puts a strain on the staff. A “mobile” solution provided by the Memmert climate chamber HPPlife is space-saving and enables freshwater for humidity control to be supplied via water tanks or alternatively via a central water supply system. With the appliance’s internal data logger, all controlled parameters are logged and documented.

Optional illumination unit for constant climate chamber HPP

If you select the light module option, you can also use this uniquely precise climate chamber for applications such as seed germination, plant cultivation or insect breeding, especially Drosophila breeding, under a constant climate and under daylight conditions. As an alternative, you can choose cold white light (6,500 Kelvin) or a combination of cold white and warm white light (2,700 Kelvin), dimmable in steps of 10%.

A Memmert climate HPPlife offers unique advantages

  • intuitive and easy-to-use operating menu
  • temperature and humidity ramps programmable via AtmoControl software
  • almost exclusive use of high-quality, corrosion-resistant and easily cleanable stainless steel for the working chamber and housing
  • Peltier heating and cooling concept specifically adapted for a precise and homogenous temperature control
  • a wide range of options for programming and documentation using interfaces, integrated data logger and software AtmoCONTROL
