Proportional dilutor systems

These unique, custom-designed systems were developed to enable the precise delivery of multiple dilutions of an experimental solution.  The systems include photoperiod, aeration and water temperature control.  Each dilutor system has space for 28 x 10 litre glass aquaria and are ideal for use with small fish and invertebrate species.

Zebrafish Stand-Alone System (Aquatic Habitats)
Operating temperature range: 21.7 - 30.6 ºC
Biological and mechanical filtration, UV disinfection, heating and aeration of recirculated water
