Vascular Access Button™ Tether

Vascular Access Button™ Tether

Button tethers are surgically implanted under the skin. In older models the catheter passes through an opening in the stalk of the button through a spring tether and up to a swivel. The Instech Vascular Access Button (VAB) features an external port with a septum to create a closed system. Compared to harnesses, buttons require a bit more work in surgery, however, there are no belly bands that require adjustment and with proper tissue ingrowth, buttons can be a good option for longer-term studies. All supplied individually sterilized, unless otherwise noted.

• Features an external port with a septum for closed systems
• Ideal for longer-term studies
• Available for rats and mice
