Catheterize two separate vessels and use a two-channel system to collect manual blood samples outside the cage without stressing the animal, all while infusing continuously through a swivel.
The blood collection line uses PE/PVC tubing for minimal evaporation and terminates in a PinPort™ for simple, clean access with a syringe or microsampling device fitted with a PinPort™ injector.
If your institute does not have a surgeon on site, in many parts of the world Charles River and Envigo can implant the catheters and two-channel Vascular Access Button™ as a surgical service so that the animals arrive at your lab recovered from surgery and ready for use.
You can take this system a step further by connecting the blood sampling line through a two-channel swivel to an automated blood sampler.
