This system is designed for doses of up to several minutes at a time, whether from a syringe pump or a manual bolus. In these
Catheterized animals with Vascular Access Buttons™ can be group housed using the protective cap. To dose, move the animal into a temporary cage and connect the pump or syringe using PinPort™ extension set to the VAB™ port. If the animal is monitored and not overly active during the dose, a swivel and protective spring tether should not be needed. Flush in the balance of the dose with an appropriate flush or lock solution and return the animal to group housing until the next dose.
