Small-scale systems



Stand-alone "XENOPUS RACK XB60"

> for the use of exchangeable boxes
> for research, husbandry and breeding of Xenopus spp.

Because of the included bio filter, the UV sterilizer and the circulation pump in its own pump tank it is a self-sufficient working system.

To adapt the different water temperature to the individual needs of the different frog species it is possible to equip the system with a cooling or heating device or with a titanium heater system (additional equipment).

"XB" husbandry boxes
The standard version contains four rack bays which are prepared for the equipping with limpid "XB" husbandry boxes for Xenopus spp.
These boxes are having an approximately water level of thirteen centimeters and are now available in two different sizes of 15 and 25 liters net volume.

"Click"-coupling system
The "XB" husbandry boxes are having a "Click"-coupling system for the connection to the water supply pipes. At these water supply pipes are small valves for the adjustment of the water supply amount.
The water drain is over sieves at the back side of the boxes.
Each husbandry box has a limpid lid with an integrated plate with a grip for easy using and to ensure a good maintain of the animals. Further the lid has a couple of holes to ensure the air exchange.

Husbandry box 'XB type III', 15 litres

The periodical water exchange is made automatically by a timer controlled solenoid valve at the programmed times. The time switch clock is a part of the standard delivery content.

The basic module could be extended with the extension module up to an aquaria facility with three modules.

Up to two extension modules could be connected to the water circulation system of one basic module. Filtering and water treatment will be done by the technical part of the basic module.
