FishGun L3 Liquid Feed Dispenser

Référence du produit PV-A036

The FishGun L3 is a semi-automatic diet delivery device. It is designed to facilitate the feeding of aquatic animals such as zebrafish in research facilities. Created for precision dispensing of different types and sizes of live food such as rotifers, artemia and daphnia
The FishGun L3 ensures faster, more accurate, and reproducible feed dosage. Its ergonomic design reduces fatigue, musculoskeletal disorders and reduces technician time spent on feeding.
With the use of the integrated RFID scanner, this system identifies different tanks and delivers the right amount of feed required according to the number of fish housed in each tank.
The FishGun’s cradle is compatible with all commercially available zebrafish tank housing systems known on the market; Iwaki Aquatic, Aquaneering, Pentair, Tecniplast.

Description

FishGun L3 Liquid Feed Dispenser

Features:

  • Ergonomic low impact design; reducing fatigue and repeat use stress
  • Digital display for optimal control during operation
  • A technological system to deliver live food (rotifers, Artemia, Daphnia ,…) by activation of a pump connected to an 8-litre tank.
  • The living plankton inside the tank is continuously homogenized by an air pump;
  • Induction charger for greater safety and robustness
  • 3 modes of operation: Strictly manual, Pre-programmed fish quantities, RFID

Benefits:

  • Simplifies feeding
  • Decreases feeding time and reduces labour costs
  • Reduce the risk of RSI and musculoskeletal complaints caused by long-term use of fully manual feeding systems
  • Versatile device for feeding aquatic animals throughout their life cycle
  • Improves the accuracy and reproducibility of feeding;
  • Coefficient of variation (CV)
    • < 20% for granulometry 75µm up to 150µm
    • < 10% for granulometry 30µm
    • < 5% for granulometry 500µm upwards
