Connecting two microdialysis probes to a freely moving rat requires four continuous lines, two in and two out. We designed a five-channel swivel just for this application -- four channels for the probes and one extra if needed for infusion or blood sampling. The MCS/5A swivel has power-assisted rotation: as soon as the rat starts to turn the swivel controller senses it and turns the swivel smoothly and proportionally. The torque felt by the animal is similar to an Instech single channel swivel.
