- Microinjection processes use either metal microinjection needles or glass micropipettes to inject small liquid volumes. For example, genetic material may be inserted into a living cell, a drug introduced into an eye or brain, or fluid injected into a muscle. Typically, microinjection is performed under a microscope. A stereotaxic frame setup may be required.
Recently, WPI introduced its customizable Microinjection System with everything you need to get started. We can help you customize your system with many options and microinjection system accessories. The basic system includes:
Microinjection pump like the PV820 Pneumatic PicoPump
LED lighted microscope base with a PZMIII Stereo Microscope and an articulating mirror
WPI offers a variety of pumps along with special syringes, stereotaxic frames, glass capillaries and needles. The setup you choose depends on the size of your microinjection aliquots, the volume to be injected and the size of needle or glass tip you choose. In addition, we offer an electroporator for transfection procedures.
Whether you are working with Danio rerio (zebrafish), Xenopus, Drosophila or Caenorhabditis elegans, we can help you customize a microinjection system for your application.
- Face masks are an essential element of personal protection equipment (PPE), and WPI offers both reusable face masks (with disposable filters) and disposable face masks, both for industrial settings and routine usage. Our reusable masks are high quality masks tested to rigorous standards (filtration efficiency above 98.2%), but they are not certified for use in a medical environment. For best results in non-medical environments, change your disposable mask at least twice a day. With WPI's reusable mask, you can use the mask for up to 10 days, depending on your environment, before you need to change the filter. In addition to the face masks, WPI carries some other personal protective equipment, like goggles. Disinfectants, sterilization equipment and personal sterilizers are also valuable to consider when discussing PPE. WPI has a range of disinfectant products and sterilization equipment.

May 21, 2020[by Tiana Ruchti] Qualified Optical Fiber is a new proprietary product brought to you World Precision Instruments. When you need true plug-and-play optical fibers, you need qualified fiber. Qualified fiber ensures you get consistent measurement results regardless of which fiber you use, even if you switch fibers in the middle of your application. WPI manufactures "Off-The-Shelf" and "Made to Order" high quality spectroscopy fiber and fiber probes. Examples such as transmission dip probes for protein DNA/RNA Quantification, UV Raman Probes for in situ environmental testing of PAHs in aqueouos systems, fluorescence probes designed to detect pH and membrane portential, to standard fiber patch cable to couple to fiberoptic spectrometers, sources and accessories.
May 18, 2020[by Mikaël Berrou] CardioPhys™ and Cardiotoxicity When a new drug is discovered with an effect against a pathology, a natural public demand would ask to administrate it immediately. Although the new drug may be beneficial in many aspects, that new molecule could potentially have side effects that need to be evaluated. The most important potential side effect is cardiotoxicity. What is Cardiotoxicity? Cardiotoxicity is the damage to the heart by harmful chemicals (www.nccn.org/patients/resources/life_with_cancer/managing_symptoms/cardiac_toxicity.aspx), and its evaluation has become the fi
