Instrumental insemination kit or otherwise known as artificially insemination kit for queen bees. This is our superior kit, ideal for the multiple inseminator, ideal for bee farmers and a kit with many adjustments. It is made from SAE 304 stainless steel, built to last. Compatible with Schley and other equipment and made to a very high standard, we use parts from a few manufacturers to bring the best kit available. The kit uses standard luer fittings. We use suppliers from UK and Turkey, and the kit is ready to go with everything you need except CO2 source and Microscope, it includes spare tips, hooks and forceps, the forceps alone cost £150 from Schley and are a huge upgrade to sting hooks usually found on budget plastic, 3D printed or Chinese kits.
The kit includes a CO2 regulator and bubble counter, The CO2 bottle or source is not included but are readily available from aquarium suppliers very reasonably, we used for the last 6 years a converted fire extinguisher and the regulator fits straight on (W21.8 otherwise known as DIN 477), ready to go. The regulator might differ to the one that is on the photo and is the only Chinese part on the instrument. Adaptors can be purchased locally if you wish to use 12g, paintball canister (9oz, 12oz) soda stream etc.
The microscope is not included. We use various X10 microscopes, and you can get a reasonable one from ebay from around £160, just a simple x10 microscope is absolutely fine, Zenith, Amscope or Swift with a 24cm focal length gives enough room to work underneath, there are many others to choose from but beware some microscopes dont allow working room, you will need a microscope with a light source or use a seperate light, the above Swift includes two cool LED lights, dont hesitate to contact us for help in choosing. Please note, it is very difficult/impossible to use a microscope with a 2d display screen, you need a scope with oculars.
