Central to many behavioural and ecological studies is the need to record the movements and metabolic performance of animals. The challenge of making such eco-physiological and behavioural measurements is the availability of specialised research equipment. Working closely with end users, Vienna Scientific offers versatile solutions for research and monitoring programmes - from birds to aquatic animals.
Q-RP2LP High Range Animal Respirometer, open flow system for animals. High range CO2 analyser (0-10%) and O2 sensor (0-100%) for more active animals. Multi chamber system for up to 7 animals + control. Two chamber sizes included plus customization options.
Q-AQUA Aquatic Animal Respirometry and Aquatic Control Systems. Based on an optical DO probe, models for intermittent flow, and intermittent stop flow (in micro chambers; Q-AQUA-Mini). Seawater and freshwater, multi-chamber system (4x). The aquatic control systems independently control pH/CO2, O2, temperature, salinity and turbidity in up to 4 water tanks.
Teaching & Learning Kit - Animal Respirometer, versatile hands-on teaching instrumentation for schools and universities. Two variants with and without O2 gas analyser, different CO2 range available.
Sensors housings for avian harness, 3D-printed biologger housings for bird harness - fully customized designs.
Open Source Operant Boxes, for behaviour research in rodents. We support customers in realizing open source operant chambers and the development of novel tools for behavioural studies.
Vienna Scientific Instruments does not develop, build or supply equipment which will be used in consumptive experimentation on vertebrates.
