We are finally considering advanced technology for injection after many
years of injecting worms with a micromanipulator-held needle supplied by a
large syringe for pressure.
Question: What is the recommended current technology that other worm labs
Biology Dept./Jordan Hall
Dear Peg (and other interested parties),
I think at this point the majority of worm labs are using
our microINJECTOR System. It is an electronic foot-pedal
controlled system. It's easy to use, robust, and designed
specifically for worm injection. At $425, it costs about one-tenth
as much as some competing systems. We also have an optional
pulse-length control module for $75 and a solid brass straight-arm
needle holder for $50. To this, we recently added a
micromanipulator for around $1000. If you, or anyone
needs more details, or our catalog with all this stuff in it,
please e-mail, and we'll reply promptly.

P.S.: The catalog has a new insert featuring our new
PourBoy II media dispenser, w/ autoclavable, electronic
micro-pump, ideal for pouring worm plates, and only $450.
Sorry - this is getting pretty spammy... but, we do make this
stuff specifically to save worm labs time and money, and keep
our prices low by not mass-mailing out unsolicited catalogs.
