Glass Ionomer Cement

Glass Ionomer Cement and Dispenser

This resin-based glass ionomer cement is ideal for permanent head attachment of microdialysis probes and head block tethers in rats and mice.

It has significant advantages over the more commonly used methylmethacrylate cements. It bonds to bone, eliminating the need for bone screws in most cases. It has a much lower temperature increase during polymerization and it hardens more quickly with no noxious fumes.

This kit includes a reusable plastic syringe-type dispenser, one 13.3 gm cartridge and 20 disposable mixing tips. The cartridges have two separate chambers so that the components of the cement are only mixed in the tips; therefore, they do not need to be used all at once. The refill kit includes two cartridges and 44 mixing tips but no dispenser. The older metal dispenser is available separately. An SOP for rodent head attachment is included. Sold for laboratory animal research applications only.
