We've made it easy to anesthetize Drosophila in their own culture vessels with this complete kit that includes a 10-mL vial of FlyNap® and 12 anesthetic wands. Flies stay immobilized for at least 50 minutes. No separate anesthetizer is needed. FlyNap® is safer than ether and is easier to use.

Students can simply anesthetize flies in an empty culture vial with no bulky or expensive extra equipment. There is also less chance for dosage error. FlyNap® wands dispense the appropriate amount of anesthetic, ensuring the flies remain "napping" for 50 minutes to several hours without being killed or sterilized.

FlyNap® is also economical, with each 100-mL bottle containing 1,000 doses. Customers tell us FlyNap® is the best - and the only - Drosophila anesthetic they'll use in their classroom. Kit contains 100 doses. Shipped via surface mail only.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It worked! (kind of) I used Flynap recently on a fruit fly lab in my AP Bio class. The first thing I want to mention is that this stuff smells VERY strong. After several different classes using it throughout the day, you could smell the Flynap from outside the hall, only getting stronger as you approached the classroom. I can't say it's an unpleasant smell; a few of us said it smelled like "old soap you'd get at your grandma's", but regardless, not super great. The product itself works, to an extent. The first time we used it, the flies knocked out within 3 minutes and we could go about the lab. They would twitch a little here and there, but for the most part, they were asleep for the duration of the period (about 50 minutes). We left them to breed for 2 weeks, then anesthetized them again to scoop out the parent flies. The Flynap worked for like 40 minutes, then most of the flies started to wake up. Not a big deal, because we didn't need to work with them for very long, but still not quite the 50 minutes promised. The last time we worked with them, we anesthetized the flies to count the different crosses that developed. The Flynap put the flies to sleep for a total of like 25-30 minutes. As we tried to pour the flies out from the culture vials onto index cards so we could look at them under the microscopes, they weren't even asleep and began crawling around the index card almost immediately. A few even flew away. The last half of class was just a frenzy of panicked screaming and the slaps of flies being smushed to prevent them from flying off as we struggled to conduct the lab. Definitely not the 50 minutes promised. Maybe we didn't use enough Flynap or something, but all in all, the product works. You just gotta work fast. :P

Rated 1 out of 5 by from It killed my flies! I ordered this product for my science fair project dealing with fruit flies. It came with little instructions on how to use it, and I was very confused because a product like this that can be harmful should have a lot of instructions. The directions told me to place the wand in for 4 minutes, and I did. After that, I went to bed. I woke up in the morning, but my flies did not, even though i followed the directions exactly. I wish there was another product available, but it looks like this is the only anesthetic for flies on this site. Make sure you only leave the wand in for 2 minutes, or you'll end up like me- depressed and without a science project.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fun! Couldn't imagine completing the fruit fly expirements without this great product. It really was neat to anesthetize the tiny flies - great way to take a close look. My 7th grader used this for the fruit fly linked genes kit and was fascinated and very successful.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Flynap When I received the product I found it was not the dark brown color it usually is. I am not sure if the solution changes color with time or if the chemical used is different from flynap I have purchased before. Students did not seem to find the product to be ineffective.
