Taking Biopsies from Laboratory Animals
The removal of biopsies and the marking of laboratory animals can be complicated and difficult. To simplify labeling and genotyping in rats and mice and to reduce stress on the animals, Biolytix has developed novel and practical biopsy forceps.
With the EarPuncher™, marking animals and taking biopsies is easy and clean (Tutorial video). The tissue is removed from the ear and placed in a tube.
The pliers are made of high-quality, hardened steel and can be autoclaved without any problems. It can be cleaned with common cleaning reagents.
