Acarologists also use such things to ring Hoyer's mounts.  A search a
couple of years ago turned up no suppliers in North America.  We approached
BioQuip Products who said they could produce such an item, but only if a
sufficient market could be identified.  The numbers we came up with were
insufficient and no product was developed.  I'm still using an antique that
was handed down to me by my former doctoral advisor.
        A Japanese colleague in a government research lab faced the same
situation and had a ringing stage fabricated at a cost of around US$200.
