  3. Motorized Stereotaxic Frame Requires No Computer Control
    February 10, 2016
    When precision and repeatability of motion are critical, WPI's MTM-3 Motorized Stereotaxic Frame outperforms manual stereotaxic frame models, and it greatly reduces human error. The motorized axis of the MTM-3 provide precise, controlled, 3-dimensional placement of any probe or accessory within the working space of a stereotaxic frame. No computer is required. The MTM-3 supplied with WPI stereotaxic frames is also compatible with standard stereotaxic frames and may be adapted to existing frames of other manufacturers. Dual manipulator arm motorized systems are also available. MTM-3 Stereotaxic Frame Introduction This videos gives a 2 minute overview of the new frame. Why Get the MTM-3 Stereotaxic Frame for your Laboratory? For
  4. Monitor the Growth of Epithelial Cells in Vitro Manually
    November 20, 2015
    For small batches of cell culture Are you ready to perform experiments involving a cultured cell monolayer? If your monolayer has not reached confluence, you may have holes or gaps in the monolayer that would prevent collection of valid experimental data. When confluence is reached, the electrical resistance across the monolayer peaks and then plateaus. The EVOM2 meter was designed specifically for this application. The EVOM2 is the ideal meter for use when you are making manual TEER measurements on small batches of cell cultures and do not require a high throughput system. EVOM2 - Perfect for TEER The EVOM2 was designed to measure TEER resistance without damaging the epithelial cells. It passes a constant current
  5. Data Acquisition Designed for Muscle Physiology Pre-Clinical Trials
    October 20, 2015
    LabTrax 8/16 hardware combined with MDAC software is an excellent choice for WPI's SI-H line of muscle physiology products like the SI-MT Muscle Platform, SI-CTS Cell Tester and SI-HTB Horizontal Tissue Baths. This data acquisition system is ideal for testing physiological characteristics like the contractile and elastic properties of different tissues in various conditions like isometric, anisometric or isotonic states. This data acquisition system was designed with the muscle researcher in mind, because the knowledge of physiological characteristics of muscles is critical when quantifying the beneficial or adverse effects of a stimulus (like a pharmaceutical drug) on muscle function in pre-clinical studies.
  6. Choosing a Pump for your Fluid Handling Application
    October 04, 2015
    The type of pump you choose for your fluid handling will largely depend on your laboratory application. In this article, we will compare the popular pump types. Peristaltic Pumps A peristaltic pump has a series of rollers that rotate around the edge of the pump head. A flexible tubing is threaded around the rollers and pressed up tight next to them, pinching the tubing where it contacts a roller. As the rollers rotate around the head, the fluid in the tubing moves from the input to the output. The rate of head rotation and the size of the tubing determine the volume of fluid that can be pumped. The volume that can be pumped is limited only by the volume of the input source. Syringe Pumps A syringe pump consists of a syringe attached to a motor driven pusher block
  7. NanoFil for Sub-Microliter Injection in Small Animal Research
    June 25, 2015
    Are you looking for a unique, low-volume syringe that holds metal tips (with needles as small as 36 gauge) as well as glass or quartz tubing? NanoFil is the answer. Necessity is the mother of invention” This quote from the dialogue Republic by ancient Greek philosopher Plato, could be considered one of the mantras of scientific research and product development. Many specialized products used in research were developed out of a specific need that was not already addressed in the market place. We often use these products without even thinking about their history, their development, or the imagination of the person who invented them. WPI's NanoFil
  8. Application Kits for Use with the NanoFil for Microinjection
    June 25, 2015
      Application kits are specially designed for eye research for injecting retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) and for intraocular (IO) injections. In addition, these kits may be used for brain injection in mice. They need to be used with a NanoFil syringe and UMPIII to achieve accurate, repetitive and oil-free injection in the submicroliter range. Each kit includes two pieces of Silflex tubing (one for a spare), a holder assembly, spare gaskets, and an assortment of four tips - blunt for the RPE kit and beveled tips for the IO kit. Each kit comes with one each of 33, 34, 35 and 36 gauge tips so that first time users can find the best size for their application.The Silflex tubing is the most critical component of the kit. This 35cm long, flexible tubing has a very precise outer

    Surgical instruments for dissecting come in a variety of patterns, types, shapes and sizes. Choosing the correct one for your application will improve outcome and reduce the frustration of trying to use an inappropriate tool. Choosing a Set of Forceps Ceramic Forceps Ceramic contains no metal. So, ceramic forceps will not leave any trace metal residue on tissue. This is especially useful in forensic science research. Ceramic is not electrically conductive, so it can be used for handling gels in an electrophoresis bath. Ceramic's corrosion resistance allows its use in highly corrosive solutions. For example, it could be used to clean quartz cover glass or lithographic produced chip sensors in an acid solution without damaging the forceps. Ceramic's low heat conductivity and high heat resistance allow it to hold parts in a flame for sterilizing or fabricating. Although the flame with eventually reduce the strength of the ceramic ti
