These mass measurements were made with a Sartorius SE2 ultramicrobalance reading to 0.1 microgram.
All filter weights were measured in either duplicate or triplicate using a seven-place electronic ultramicrobalance (model UMT2; Mettler Toledo, Greifensee, Switzerland).
Built on proven TGA technology, the Pyris 1 TGA is said to offer the highest sensitivity sample weight readout available, due to its ultramicrobalance and microfurnace, innovative advancements built into the thermo-gravimetric system, according to the company's D-5992 reference brochure.
For each adult, species and sex were determined, and labeled adults were dried at 60 [degrees] C and weighed to the nearest 0.0001 mg using a Cahn C31 ultramicrobalance. Masses of adults, days from hatch to adulthood, and number of adults were the basic data collected from this experiment.
The flies from each group were then weighed on a Sartorius ultramicrobalance with an accuracy of 0.001 mg.
