Rodent Continuous Infusion

Continuous Infusion Systems for Rodents are the most commonly used models for drug infusion research. These systems, sometimes called Tethered Infusion Systems, typically consist of a pump, swivel, swivel mount, extension lines and a catheter. There are several options for tethering to the animal, including Catheter Access Buttons™, harnesses, jackets or just a standard externalized catheter. Each options has pros and cons, and if you aren't sure we recommend reading this overview or speaking with one of our experienced technical staff. Whether it's for chronic infusion, infusion with PK blood collection, or infusion in an unusual species, we can help create the system that works for you.

Rat

Rats are the most commonly used species for continuous infusion studies. We offer several systems, including the CAB™ system for the most secure catheter fit.
