Developed from teacher requests! The large, sturdy, reusable, clear plastic Carolina® Large Choice Chamber has been developed so you can observe and monitor animal behavior. Construct a hypothesis about habitat preference and test your idea. Not only is this new chamber large enough (6" in diameter and 1" deep) to use for isopods, it's great for bessbugs, millipedes, and hissing roaches. Kit comes with 2 chambers, 2 chamber lids, a tunnel system with lid, and 4 "gates" to allow you to control access to your chambers. The exclusive design also allows you to add up to 2 Additional Carolina® Large Choice Chambers and Lids (item #143052) in order to test multiple parameters simultaneously. No need to worry if a part gets misplaced; simply order the Replacement Carolina® Choice Chamber Tunnel, Lid, and 4 Gates (item #143053) to complete your set. You can also order the Black Carolina® Large Choice Chamber and Lid (item #143055) for more habitat preference options.

 
 

Conference & Workshop Materials

 
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice set up, but poorly made We bought these to use with our millipedes for a microhabitat preference experiment. I was pleased with the ease of assembly, etc, but we plan on using these long term, over many semesters, for our freshman biology students. The plastic seems to be less sturdy than I would like. Already, a couple of the units are scuffed pretty badly, and a couple are cracked. It appears that the plastic just isn't made to hold up to people repeatedly taking them apart and putting them back together, which is the goal of the lab---to test different environments, therefore needing to assemble different combinations of both clear and black chambers. As I was carefully assembling them for testing, I felt as though I was going to break off the hinges. Also, even with using filter paper to cover the bottom, our sand, soil, and gravel (to mimic difference terrestrial surfaces) scratched the surface of the chambers pretty badly with a few uses, even though the students were careful with placing in the sand/gravel/soil and removing it. The only reason we would buy these in the future is because we really don't have another choice in product that is easily available through our purchasing system, and it looks like I may have to buy more of them to replace the ones that were damaged after one semester of use (approximately 4 uses over the span of a week).
