During the process of animal surgery or acute anesthetized animal experiment, maintaining animals’ body temperature is very important for the accuracy and reliability of the results, furthermore, it is an important way to reduce the mortality of the animals. To fulfill this need, we have a new generation of homothermic monitoring system “Thermostar”, which is a closed-loop temperature monitor/control system for rodents. The system includes the control unit, 1 flexible rectal probe, 1 heating pad, and 1 heat insulation pad.
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.
