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.
Microsurgery is performed under magnification employing advanced diploscopes, specialized precision tools, and various operating procedures, based on delicate manipulation of microstructures that require highly precise and reliable instruments.
The microsurgical methods are primarily used for vascular anastomosis, nerve coaptation, tissue transplantation, and reattachment of the amputated body parts of the rodents.
Zantiks MWP model is suitable for assessing the behavior of smaller organisms in multi-well plates petri dishes custom chambers such as larvae of Zebrafish, Xenopus, and Drosophila, adult Daphnia and Drosophila, Artemia, and C. elegans.
