Light arc for tail vein injection is a novel technique used to administer drug substances to black strains of rodents. The black strains of rodents have a darker tail which makes it difficult to spot the caudal vein due to color contrast. This illumination problem is solved by Conductscience’s Light Arc which distributes a uniform light over an angle of 180° around the subject’s tail.
The light arc stands on a flat base connected to the power source. A Broome-style handler is placed in the center to restrain the subject. The arc is equipped with 10 RGB LEDs, approx. one every 2cm. The color contrast is regulated by the intensity of the primary colors; it can be adjusted with red, green, and blue knobs for the optimal contrast of the veins.
Available in Red, Blue, Green coloration, Conduct Science offers the Light Arc for Tail Injection. The restrainer is not included. The restrainer holder is adjustable to be able to hold different size restrainers.
These aerosol tips provide you with complete protection from sample carry-over. Incorporating a robotically inserted 10 μm filter with a sponge-like porous pathway. The tips have such a small pore they even block fluids in the unlikely event that you should over pipet. Proven in independent studies to block aerosol contamination but unlike some leading brands of self-sealing aerosol resistant pipet tips they have no cellulose gum, toluene solvent, or colored dyes in the filter to mix with and contaminate your sample. Also, unlike self-sealing aerosol tips, our tips can be autoclaved in a steam autoclave. And they will not wick fluids like cellulose-filled aerosol resistant tips so you don’t have to worry about how you hold your pipettor.
