PinPorts™: Miniature Access Ports for Laboratory Animal Research

Instech's new family of PinPorts™ provide fast, aseptic access to externalized laboratory animal catheters, tubing or cannulae for dosing or sampling. They can reduce study costs and improve compliance with the 3Rs. The system consists of a lightweight port, just 3mm in diameter, and a mating injector or connector which can access the port hundreds of times.


  • Quick. Infuse or withdraw from the catheter in a fraction of the time it takes with plugs and blunt needles.
  • Clean. The PinPort is a closed system that permits aseptic technique. This can reduce infection, improve patency and ultimately reduce the number of animals required for a study.
  • Safe. The injector is recessed and provides complete needle stick protection for personnel.
