Zantiks units enable researchers to measure animal behaviour, simply. Based in the UK, Zantiks supplies researchers throughout the world with robust, versatile, easy-to-use equipment for behavioural studies. We develop our products in close collaboration with researchers and produce fully integrated and automated systems, at low cost, for multiple species. Our units are complete, networked systems which can be accessed and operated from any networked device (laptop, mobile phone, tablet, etc). They provide multiple stimuli options, including temperature control, vibration, lighting, audio, and food/liquid & odour delivery for maximum flexibility to the researcher. The compact units provide an isolated, consistent environment for standardised behavioural assays, including locomotor activity (toxicity, (opto)genetic, circadian), simple learning experiments (startle, habituation, PPI), and operant conditioning. Zantiks units are currently available in three sizes: MWP, AD and LT. Results from live video tracking are processed in real-time at 30-60 fps with data therefore immediately available for statistical analysis. The latest models (ZS2) can record and subsequently track video at up to 600 frames per second. The Zantiks MWP ZS2 is further suitable for high resolution filming. Zantiks units are used on 4 continents, 23 countries and over 80 labs worldwide, and their rigorously tested hardware works with many species, including (but not limited to!) Artemia (adult, nauplii), C.elegans, Daphnia (adult, neonate), Drosophila (adult, larvae), rodents (rats, mice) & zebrafish (adult, larvae, embryo).

Union Biometrica COPAS FP™ and BioSorter® Large Particle Flow Cytometers automate the analysis and sorting of objects too big/fragile for traditional cytometers, e.g. large cells/clusters, cells in/on beads and small model organisms like Drosophila larvae (5-1500 micron diameter). The large bore fluidics and patented air sorting technology ensure optimal sample integrity and viability. The new COPAS VISION cytometer adds real-time capture of brightfield images for the convenient identification of objects. Object dispensing is done based on parameters like relative size, optical density, and fluorescence signals. The COPAS VISION combines high-sensitivity optics packaged in a smaller footprint sized for optional installation in a biosafety cabinet.






GenetiVision is the industry leader in Drosophila transgenesis. We have the most competitive pricing with the best guarantee. We provide injection only to full services (injection, selection, and balancing) for P-element and Phi-C31-mediated site-specific transgenesis as well as CRISPR modifications. Our team is highly experienced, serving the Drosophila community for almost two decades, injecting more than 30,000 DNAs for over 400 laboratories worldwide. We previously made a collection of >1,000 transgenic stocks carrying 80 kb BACs covering >90% of all autosomal genes. This collection is now available through the Bloomington Drosophila Stock Center. We are currently generating a collection of 2,800 Flippase-dependent conditional inactivation or reactivation alleles (so -called "flip-flop" alleles) for a large fraction of the conserved genes in Drosophila using existing CRIMIC lines and the RMCE method. We invite the Drosophila research community to nominate genes for conversion from CRIMIC to flipflop alleles. Such alleles will be generated and provided free of charge (other than shipping and a $20 handling fee).
