Research Catheters for Rodents

These research catheters are designed for use with mice and rats. Catheters used for sampling or dosing can vary and depend on access or animal size. We carry catheters used for common applications. All catheters are ETO sterilized.

Intrathecal research catheters are tiny tubes that are positioned in the intrathecal space that surrounds the spinal cord. They are used for delivering pain medication, which can be specifically targeted where it is needed.

A vascular catheter, a venous catheter, is surgically implanted into an animal's vein, allowing the researcher repeated access to the same vein without having to puncture the animal again.
