Catheterize two separate vessels and use this system to both collect manual blood samples and infuse boluses from outside the cage — all without touching the animal. The unique KVABR2TX/25 kit features a hollow swivel so that both lines connect directly to the Vascular Access Button; the lines will rotate as the animal moves (therefore, do not use this system if you will connect to a pump).
Both the blood collection line and infusion line uses PE/PVC tubing for minimal evaporation and terminates in a PinPort™ for simple, clean access with a syringe fitted with a PNP3M injector.
If you are already performing surgery to place the IV dosing catheter, why not take the simple extra step of placing a blood sampling catheter to avoid the pain, stress
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.
