RC400 Respiration Cell

rc400

For Marine Biologists wishing to measure respiration rates of larger aquatic animals including mussels and fry.

  • Chamber volume 730ml
  • Design of chamber ensures minimal distress placed on animal during the experiment
  • Minimal stirring required for measurement of respiration rates. No stirring required if the animal is mobile
  • Respiration rate measurements without requirement for vigorous stirring of the water
  • Minimal disturbance to animals during measurement contents

For respiration rate measurements of larger animals.

Originally developed to meet the requirements of a research project on the respiration rate of mussels when exposed to pollution, the chamber has a screwed lid which seals against an O ring. The lid has a central hole for the electrode holder (provided) and two tapered holes for the insertion of sealing bungs. There is a perforated false floor to separate the animal from the magnetic spinbar which is slowly rotated to mix the oxygen in the water. In use, the chamber would be placed in a constant temperature water bath, with a magnetic stirrer beneath it.
