The Rose aspirators use a revolutionary design that incorporates a machined Delrin® lid with a rubber O-ring seal. This configuration prevents even extremely small insects from crawling between the stopper and the sides of the vial thus eliminating the accidental crushing of specimens. Insects are always at least 12 mm from the open end of the vial allowing enough time to remove the lid and replace it with a cap before specimens have a chance to escape. Additionally, these aspirators allow for the use of standard size plastic or glass vials that are readily available from several suppliers.
Other features of the Bug-Vac aspirators include thin-walled brass tubing and a large internal filter using 120 mesh stainless steel screen (finer mesh available by custom order). The large diameter of the filter screen allows for excellent air flow and eliminates screen plugging.
Optional: An in-line air filter that prevents particles from reaching your mouth when using the Bug-Vac.
Each unit comes packaged with:
- Four plastic vials and caps (or one glass vial for sizes 0 and 00)
- A length of vinyl tubing
