Two Channel Vascular Access Button™ for Mice

Instech’s revolutionary Vascular Access Buttons™ feature PinPort™ technology that simply and cleanly connects an implanted catheter to a syringe for direct access, or to a tether for continuous access.

Buttons are implanted subcutaneously during catheterization surgery and offer great long-term patency and the option of group housing. They are quickly becoming the preferred method of catheter exteriorization for mice (one or two catheters) and rats (one to four catheters).

Group house mice after surgery with the protective aluminum cap; it connects to the button magnetically. Use the VABMG tool to grip the button and mouse magnetically without hemostats. Use the VABM2L loop to connect the two channels (typically for bile circulation).
