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.
The plasma thawer is a specially-designed device that makes use of a microprocessor temperature regulator in maintaining water baths at appropriate plasma-thawing temperatures of 30 to 37 degrees Celsius. It consists of two stainless steel baskets designed to hold a total of four bags of plasma at one time. The device can be set to carry out 0 to 60-minute cycles and is also equipped with audio and visual alarm systems. Designed to hold close to 5 gallons of water, the plasma thawer is the ideal equipment for thawing procedures. It also comes with overwrap bags for holding plasma units and a thermometer for keeping track of temperatures.

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 a small pore that blocks 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.
