Carotid artery catheters for rats

Code C20PU-RCA1936
Our rat carotid artery catheters (CACs) are made of polyurethane that has been specially extruded for an ideal fit with PinPorts™ and Vascular Access Buttons™. The straight 2Fr catheters connect to 25ga PinPorts or VABs; two-piece catheters transition to 3Fr for 22ga connectors. (In general, we prefer straight catheters are preferred because they are more reliable and less expensive to manufacture.)
