All rodent restrainers are manufactured from clear materials thus providing complete visual awareness of the animal. The head is pushed back by the moveable disk so that the tail projects out the hole in the acrylic plate. Perfect for injections, blood sampling, or blood pressure monitoring. Offered in four sizes to accomodate indicated rodent weight.
These mouse restrainers are built in cylindershaped perspex. Lateral slots and holes allow for the animals ventilation and makes the access for interperitaneal (i.p.) drug administration possible. The available space for the animal can be adjusted by means of a sliding piston, thereby keeping the whole tail free for the pulse transducer and the cuff positioning or for intravenous (i.v.) drug administration. The animal is led in from the back and can walk out in the front, thus avoiding dragging it backwards.
Disposable plastic restraint cones hold the animal safely in position for injections through the plastic bag, for decapitation, for cervical dislocation, or for examination of collected field specimens such as field mice or rats. The scientist avoids contact with feces or urine, and avoids bites and scratches.
The animal is easily loaded into the cone at the wide end, and heads for the breathing hole at the small end. Sold in packs of 50.
