Micro-Cannula

Micro-Cannula

This Micro-Cannula has been designed for quick and easy insertion into the arteries and veins of small animals such as rats, mice and hamsters. The Cannula tip is contoured for easy insertion and is fitted with an adjustable shoulder or barb for ‘tie-in’ to the animal to prevent accidental removal. The stainless steel trochar aids in vascular penetration and allows for a maximum range of cannula manipulation during insertion.

• For insertion in very small blood vessels
• Can be used with radio labeled compounds

The Micro-Cannula tubing is made from a perflourocarbon material that is biocompatible. One end of the Cannula has a female connection allowing convenient linkage to infusion lines.

This Micro-Cannula has been utilized effectively for the rapid cannulation of hamster carotid and femoral arteries and for the cannulation of mouse carotid arteries. It has also been used as an ‘indwelling’ catheter during experiments spanning an entire day.

Projected uses include the injection of small amounts of expensive radiolabeled compounds or monoclonal antibodies intra-arterially, for more effective distribution to vital organs. It can also be used to inject drugs directly into the circulation or to measure pressure in the femoral artery without compromising blood flow to the brain.

The Micro-Cannula is supplied individually in a non-sterile package. With care, this Micro-Cannula can be reused.
