NOTE: Instech's MTANK and STANK enclosures have been discontinued as of January 2022. After nearly four decades of working with us the supplier Cambro will no longer manufacture them for us without the markings that are required for their other application, food storage containers. If you wish to source them yourself with the markings contact a kitchen supply company such as Edward Don & Co in the US.
These durable polycarbonate enclosures were designed to house tethered rodents during short-term microdialysis and infusion experiments. Since the tank is round, tethers will not tangle as they sometimes can in shoebox-type cages. Also, animals are less likely to dislodge sensitive probes since there are no sharp corners. Handles at the top make it easy to move around the lab.
The enclosures are most frequently used with our counter-balanced lever arms. Feeders, water bottles
