Q-teach Animal CO2 Package

Home Teaching Q-teach Animal CO2 Package

The Q-teach Animal CO2 Package is designed for teaching the principles of respirometry in small animals like insects, lizards and amphibians placed in a flow-through chamber.  Aquatic animals such as fish may also be studied when placed in the head-space aquatic chamber.  The package includes everything required by the instructors: NDIR CO2 analyzer (0-2000ppm), gas pump/flow monitor (1LPM), two flow-through animal chambers and one aquatic head-space chamber. Temperature probe, gas bags, accessories, data interface, software and experimental files with all experiments and calculations are also included.  Operational and Laboratory  manuals are provided on a USB disk. An optional O2 analyzer (0-25%) may also be added to the package.
