Experts in hand-making Tetrad Dissection Needles for more than thirty years, they contain a light-optimising, 50 um diameter fibre core that is supported by a thicker, taper-ended glass envelope. This unique construction gives the perfect combination of strength and flexibility that gives the needles very long life in normal use.
The needles come in boxes of 10, with discounts available if ordering multiple boxes.
Carefully engineered for light-optimising transmission
Easy to handle
enough to reach the thinnest agar
Very hard to break

MSM 400 Features
The MSM 400 automatically remembers the placement of cells and positions can be revisited at the touch of a button, reducing error and fatigue
Replication Cycle Tracking
Advanced software automatically tracks the number of cell divisions each mother has undergone.
User Friendly Intefrace
The interactive user interface is intuitive and very easy to use. It informs the user of the exact stage position and selected operating mode
The comfortable joystick can control all the basic functionality of the MSM 400 with the left hand, while the pendant micromanipulator controls X, Y & Z needle movement with the right hand. The MSM 400 can be set up left or right-handed.
