Quality and Innovation


Frequently Asked Questions:

Why should I buy from BioChambers? -> Click for Answer

Founded in 1973, BioChambers is an ISO certified company which manufactures equipment to the highest quality standards. We work hard to engineer and manufacture equipment which is designed to run reliably for many years. We understand that down-time is costly so we have a customer service team that is second to none ensuring that, when problems do arise, you will get experienced help quickly.


Does BioChambers sell internationally? -> Click for Answer

Yes. We manufacture equipment for export to countries all over the world.


Can I install the chamber myself? -> Click for Answer

Smaller chambers are often designed to be easily installed by the customer. Installation of larger units is more complex and requires someone with experience to assemble and commission. BioChambers provides options for installation and has a team of experienced technicians available for this purpose. For more information on installation options, please contact a BioChambers representative.


Which model is best for me? -> Click for Answer

Chamber models are broken into categories specifically designed to make the decision easier (e.g. Tall Plant, Short Plant, Tissue Culture, etc.). The BioChambers Flex series is designed to be easily converted to accommodate tall plants or short plants. How large the model should be depends on the growth space required, available laboratory space, and budget. A BioChambers representative can help in choosing equipment that will best suit your research needs and fit into an overall plan for your laboratory.


What do I do if I have a service issue? -> Click for Answer

Every chamber BioChambers manufactures comes complete with manuals and schematics to assist with service. If these are not available to you or if you have questions which are not answered there, you can always call or email for help. BioChambers does not charge up front for assistance in troubleshooting and is happy to help through our team of experienced, friendly service technicians.


We have had our chamber for many years and would like to make upgrades to it. Is it possible to upgrade the lighting or control system?
-> Click for Answer

In most cases both the lighting and control system can be upgraded to something more modern. BioChambers would be happy review options for your particular chambers.


How fast should I program the fans to run in my chamber? -> Click for Answer

We typically recommend a fan speed of 85% or higher unless there is a specific need to slow the circulating fans down. Fans can typically be slowed down as low as 50%, but some caution should be used when doing so as this tends to have a drying effect on the air in the chamber.


I want to shut my chamber off between experiments. Is there a specific way to do this? -> Click for Answer

Generally it is okay to simply switch the chamber off using the green button on the front panel. The control system and some cooling fans will continue to run, so if you want to conserve energy you may choose to shut off all remaining power. Please consult the Operation and Maintenance Manual for details.


Does BioChambers make custom-built products? -> Click for Answer

Yes. BioChambers specializes in customizing product to meet specific needs. If you have a specific need that might need customization we would be happy to discuss that with you. BioChambers also offers many standard options such as humidity, CO<sub>2</sub> and various lighting systems which do not require customization. Just give us a call or send us an email!


What is a condenser, and how do I know which type I should use? -> Click for Answer

A condenser deals with the heat that is removed from inside the chamber (e.g. Heat from the lamps) and there are several types available. For a full description, including help deciding which type is most appropriate for you, please click HERE.


Why do I need fresh air? How much is enough? -> Click for Answer

Fresh air is vital as it provides the CO<sub>2</sub> needed for healthy plant growth and development. For more information please click HERE.
