Description

The MazeEngineers Drosophila Array allows for one of a kind Drosophila experiments. Based on the work done by De Bivort et al, the arrays allow for a few key features:

  • Multiple arrays with a backlight allow for precise video tracking of multiple Drosophila at once
  • Precision made arrays allow individual drosophila to run unique experiments. Each array is well lit using this configuration
  • Multiple arrays possible including Y, T, +, and -.
  • Customized array shapes possible as well. Please contact us for more details
  • There are 4 key layers for the Array
    • Layer 1: The bottom, which is translucent with a light backdrop
    • Layer 2: The walls of the individual maze. (Height: 1/16 in)
    • Layer 3: Infrastructure around the maze to allow for robust strength to each array
    • Layer 4: A clear non reflective acrylic lid.
