Tethered Primate System

The tethered infusion system is well suited for studies that require large dosing volumes for extended periods of time or when repeated interaction with the pump is necessary. With large dosing volumes, syringe pumps may not be optimal, since the largest standard syringe only holds 60ml. Volumetric pumps can handle a wide range of flow rates and can accommodate reservoirs of 2 liters or larger.  Reservoirs and delivery ‘tubing sets’ are more expensive, but the versatility and convenience are well worth it.  

The tethered system requires an in-dwelling catheter1 either a tunneled exteriorized catheter or access port, pocketed jacket, metal tether, swivel, extension lines, and an infusion pump.

Below is a system we recommend for any infusion study utilizing large animals.  For more information on selecting the right catheter and pump for your research give us a call or send us an email and we will be happy to assist you with putting together the right system for your specific research needs.
