Automated Fly Food Dispenser

Efficiently Grow Fruit Flies For Your Research Using Gilson's Automated Fly Food Dispenser.

Due to the similarities at the molecular level between humans and fruit flies (Drosophila melanogaster), these little creatures are excellent models for studying underlying mechanisms of human disease. In fact, 50% of fly protein sequences have mammalian analogues.

Introducing The Automated Fly Food Dispenser

The need to efficiently and cost-effectively grow fruit flies for use in research is of real concern. How do we feed all these little mouths? Manually filling vials with fly food can be extremely labor intensive and time-consuming, not to mention it's messy work!

You can bypass this bottleneck in your Drosophila production process, and begin producing a higher quality product at a much faster pace. This in turn brings in more revenue, and helps to maintain a cleaner kitchen.

Create More Fly Food In Less Time, In A Cleaner Environment

With this turnkey solution from Gilson, getting your lab set up with an automated fly food dispenser is quick and easy!
