Use this two-channel system when studying addiction to two compounds administered simultaneously. Catheterize two vessels and connect them to a two-channel Vascular Access Button™, then run the lines through a two-channel swivel for two independent flow paths.
Vascular Access Buttons™ are ideal for addiction studies because the dual tether/IV lines can be simply and aseptically connected or disconnected when moving the animal into or out of the operant chamber. Animals with Vascular Access Buttons™ may be group housed when not on study by using the protective aluminum cap.
The components shown are compatible with operant chamber systems from Med Associates. Similar two-channel systems are available for mice.
