Fly pushing

Fly pushingA large temperature controlled main laboratory maintained at 190C houses 22 fly stations with dissection microscopes, each equipped with fly pads and piped CO2 for the temporary anaesthetisation of flies. This allows flies to be identified and sorted for experimental work.

Fly cultures for experimental work can be housed in a 250C/70%RH culture room with a remote wireless monitoring and alarm service. Three additional incubators set at a variety of temperatures are also available for experimental work as needed.

An injection microscope and needle puller are situated within the facility and available for all biomedical science researchers.
