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 Real-Time Place Preference Chamber is a variant of the conditioned place preference chamber which is a paradigm widely used to explore the reinforcing effects of natural and pharmacological stimuli, including drugs of addiction.
Mice were tested in a two-chamber cage without additional contextual cues. Mice were gently put into the middle of the cage at the beginning of the test. Mice will receive laser stimulation when entering one side of the chamber randomly assigned at the beginning of the experiment.
Mazeengineers offer the Real-Time Place Preference Chamber.
