These tail vein cannulae feature a sharp 29ga (0.3mm OD) stainless steel needle with a segment of extension tubing. Insert directly into the tail vein of a restrained mouse for manual sampling or dosing. Since it is a sharp needle it is not designed to be left in place for an extended period of time.
Access the cannula either through a PinPort™ for a low-dead-volume closed system, or with a standard open female luer and cap. Needle guard included with both.
