Dark adaptation made easy


Striatech's dark adaptation box "DarkAdapt" takes the hassle out of dark-adapting your experimental animals. DarkAdapt is completely light-tight. Nevertheless, it provides robust ventilation, so that you can thouroughly dark adapt your animal even over extended periods of time, and even in a well-lit laboratory environment.
