Gas anesthesia with Isoflurane is quickly becoming the standard method of general anesthesia for rats and mice in biomedical research. WPI's new facemasks offer several advantages, including zero leakage and dead space.
Recently, WPI introduced its customizable Microinjection System with everything you need to get started. It's perfect for zebrafish research and other microinjection application. The basic system is shown here. Below you will find many options and accessories you may use to customize your system.
In this JoVE video you can observe as the researchers perform an intraluminal middle cerebral artery occlusion (MCAO) on a mouse. The MCAO model is the most frequent used model among experimental ischemic stroke models. WPI's thermal cautery unit, high frequency dessicator and BAT-12R thermocouple thermometer, as well as surgical instruments, are used in this demonstration.
