Open flume tank system for force-swimming individuals or groups of zebrafish fry-juveniles (or similar) in a controlled recti-linear flow. Water velocity can be adjusted from 2-28 cm/s with a diaphragm valve or by changing the (included) pump flow rate. The exact flow is monitored in real-time with an inline paddlewheel (inductive) flow sensor and a transmitter with a digital display. Swimming animals can be filmed from left and right as well as from above and below. The open test section makes it easy to add or remove specimens. Typical applications include zebrafish phenotyping, swimming performance, exercise physiology, behavior etc. in freshwater or seawater species.
NOTE: The diaphragm valve and paddlewheel flow sensor is included. Mesh diameter size (in honeycomb and metal mesh) can be changed upon request. Contact us for more information.
