"Moo Moo" Test Tube Bank
The byFormica "Moo Moo" Test Tube Bank is for the 90% of antkeepers who continue to use affordable, durable, test tubes for starting colonies. This feature-packed holder has been specifically engineered to work with 13 mm and 16 mm Lake Charles Manufacturing (LCM) rimless Pyrex glass tubes, which are also included in each kit.
Thanks to dspdrew for some design direction.
Features and Benefits:
- Heavy, stable, durable plastic.
- (E) Quick-glance visibility of up to 8 test tubes. Fully compatible with 13 mm OR 16 mm LCM Pyrex glass tubes (compatibility varies by model).
- (E) Grips test tubes snugly, so they do not fall out when bank is transported. Tubes do not roll around inside bank slots, but are easily adjustable.
- (E) 5 degrees of tilt reduces the impact of possible floods.
- (E) Bi-color white and chocolate/brown background.
- Allow high contrast viewing of brood and workers.
- Tubes may be easily repositioned within the bank slots so that the active area (where the ants are positioned) either has a light or dark background.
- In addition, the unique contour of the bank slots and dark background may provide a shaded area for light-sensitive queens.
- (E) Rubber bumpers stabilize the bank on smooth surfaces, and decrease the effects of vibrations by 60%.
- (E) Shine light through back side (such as cellphone or flashlight) to illuminate ants from behind.
- (E) Perpendicular holes running the length of the front/back and left/right slots allow for custom placement of standard heating cables.
- (E) "Peg board" backing allows for the insertion of hangers on which forceps or pipettes may be stored for quick access.
