Sleeper TAS

The INJECT+MATIC Sleeper TAS is an the optimum combination of the ability of the Sleeper to anaesthetize drosophila and the autonomy of the TAS (Tankless Anaesthesia System) to generate nitric oxide (NO) or anaesthesia NO-gas. Read more

This instrument does not need any external source of gas. Only the electric source is required for its utilization. The INJECT+MATIC Sleeper TAS is specially designed for the laboratories not equipped with CO2 installation and for the use in teaching classes.

The INJECT+MATIC Sleeper TAS is a unique device that generates nitric oxide (NO) in concentration of 400 ppm from the air ambient. This Sleeper Gas containing NO has proven to be as reliable and safe as CO2 in anaesthetizing drosophila. This device can replace CO2 anaesthesia thus eliminating the costly and burdensome CO2 tanks and installation (See publication number 2). The NO gas is pulsed under the control of a foot pedal-switch directed to a flowbed or a hand-held pistol both included in the basic unit of the device.

Toxicology tests performed in laboratory demonstrate that the concentration of NO being able to be inhaled by the researcher during the use of INJECT+MATIC Sleeper TAS for drosophila anaesthesia are very low (<1-2 ppm) because NO is a highly volatile gas that rapidly combines with air ambient.
