GyroMini Nutating Mixer = $379
It is important to continuously rock or mix blood after it has been collected, either in a syringe or a tube. This way the blood doesn’t settle and separate. This mixer would be used on an almost daily basis to aid in keeping blood samples mixed and ready for diagnostic testing.
Aesculight VetScalpel Adjustable Tipless Handpiece = $799
This will allow for faster and more sterile adjustments of laser settings to perform surgery more precisely and more efficiently.
Ventilator = $2,793.80
