Decades of experience, and a finger on the pulse of the industry, have led to the holistic design of systems that can simultaneously improve efficiency, animal welfare and the quality of your data.
We are proud to lead the global shift from rigid metal feeding needles to flexible plastic tubes. Recommended as an animal welfare refinement, these tubes come in a range of sizes for mice, rats and large rodents.
Recent product advances have changed the way we imagine laboratory animal infusion research. Dramatic improvements in patency, hassle-free connections and automation systems open new possibilities for continuous and intermittent rodent and large animal infusion studies.
Addiction research and abuse liability studies place unique demands on infusion equipment. The Vascular Access Button™ was designed to extend catheter patency and simplify connection of these valuable trained rats and mice.
Taking a blood sample from a rat or mouse is one of the most common lab animal research procedures, yet it can also be one of the most stressful. It’s your responsibility, not only for animal welfare but also for good science, to refine your techniques to minimize pain and stress.
The glucose clamp technique, critical for diabetes research, is challenging not only because of the number of infusion and sampling lines that need to be connected to a freely-moving mouse or rat, but also because the insulin sensitivity it measures is directly affected by the animal’s health and welfare.
Rodent bile sampling, historically a messy procedure, has been greatly simplified with the extracorporeal loop on our Vascular Access Buttons™. Numerous configurations let you maximize the data you collect from a single animal, while improving welfare with socialization and bile replacement.
