This instrumental insemination unit is light weight and easy to use. It comes complete with Insemination tips, queen holder and syringe and is ready to use. However, you will require a stereo microscope and CO2 supply to get started.
Instrumental Insemination of queen bees has become widely recognised as the most reliable way of maintaining queen lines. With equipment becoming more available it has become a valuable tool for beekeepers.
The sting forceps and ventral hook run through ball joints which offer smooth operation during insemination. They are in fixed locations making it easier to set-up. The syringe slider offers full movement, both vertically and horizontally. The queen holder assembly is full adjustable to ensure that optimum alignment of queen and tip can be achieved.
Manufactured from stainless steel, this unit is robust and easy to clean and sterilise between use.
