This widely used aspirator fits easily into a pocket, and facilitates capture of insects too small to be picked up with forceps. Intake and exhaust tubes are aluminum, and the mouthpiece is 1/4″ (6mm) natural latex tubing. The exhaust tube is protected with fine 220 mesh nylon to limit inhalation of foreign matter. Two 9-dram clear styrene tubes with snap-on caps, 1 x 2-3/4″ I.D. (25.2 x 68mm), are supplied as containers. Additional or replacement tubes #8909 are available. As a safety precaution, BioQuip recommends using the #1135Y HEPA filter with this aspirator. Also see #1135X aspirator syringe bulb. It allows users to aspirate specimens without inhaling particulate matter.
