Mouse Thigh Bone Holder
From Squirrel's Lair
|Project:||Mouse Thigh Bone Holder (I)|
|Description:||Positioner sleeve for mouse thigh bone marrow extraction|
|Project Type(s) :|
A researcher from the University of Manitoba approached us to find an easier way to prep lab specimens. They needed to extract the marrow from a large number of mouse femurs. This required securing the mouse bone in a standing position in a centrifuge.
How we did it
We 3D modelled a sleeve to fit into standard centrifuge Eppendorf tubes that can be easily and cheaply 3D printed for prototyping.
