VAH™ for Mice
VAH™ for Mice
Instech’s new mouse VAH™, an advancement on the Covance Infusion Harness™, permits quick, aseptic connection and disconnection of a catheterized mouse and an infusion tether. Like its larger cousin for rats, the system consists of two parts: a miniature external port housed in a harness (VAH62AB) and a mating spring tether with a connector (VAH62T) that pierces the septum to make the fluid connection. Mice can be ordered with a catheter and the harness pre-installed (see Partners list at left). Then, to begin an infusion study, simply wipe the septum with disinfectant and connect the VAH tether to the harness. Flush, inject into or sample from the harness directly as needed using a syringe fitted with an VAHLS25/30 injector. (Do not use other types of needles to access the the very small septum in the mouse VAH; they can damage the septum or fail to make a connection.) The standard system is designed for single channel infusion for blood sampling of mice using a 25ga swivel. Use catheters that have a 3Fr externalized portion for best connection to the 22ga port under the harness dome. All parts are supplied EtO sterilized.
