The Drosophila CO2 Blowgun (FlyShot) offers variable flow control, with a compact, modern and simple design that makes it the perfect complement for Drosophila Anesthesia Solutions. Lightweight, ergonomic, and initiative to use, the output is a stainless steel needle allowing easy anesthetizing of flies. The needle tip of the apparatus enables controlled CO2 dispersal into pugged or capped vials. This apparatus, when connected to the Flowmate reduces the amount of CO2 necessary compared to continuous flow systems and prevents over-anesthetized specimens.
The virtual reality environment can be created as per the need of the experiment. In the Simian version multiple environments can be configured.
The Morris Water Maze (MWM) is a widely used behavioral task developed by Richard G. Morris in the year 1981 as a response to the Radial Arm Maze (RAM). As opposed to the Radial Arm Maze, the Morris Water Maze doesn’t provide the subject with a choice point. Further, the task utilizes the fear of drowning to motivate the subject to learn the location of the escape platform quickly. The navigational task is effective in the assessment of spatial learning, and over the course of years has seen modifications and adaptations such as the Water T-Maze, the Water Y-Maze, and the Water RAM.
The MazeEngineers Morris Water Maze adjustable platform is designed for the perfect Morris Water Maze experiment. Clear acrylic means the mouse uses spatial cues, not intramazal cues. Adjustable height allows just the right depth in the water. Etched acrylic allows for easy grappling to the surface. Sturdy base lets you ensure that the platform will not move. This is the platform you need to make sure your experiment runs smoothly. Made for mice and rats.
