Vascular Access Button™
Vascular Access Button™
This new implantable button features an external port with a septum similar to the Vascular Access Harness™ for quick, aseptic connection and disconnection of a catheterized rat and an infusion tether. They are ideal for long-term studies with protocols that call for intermittent tethering, such as IV self administration or blood sampling. Compared to the DC95BS, which uses a Dacron® mesh, the VAB95BS buttons feature a sturdier medical-grade polyester felt. Attach a 3Fr polyurethane catheter (included with part number VAB95BS-C) to a 22ga connector under the felt. The button is implanted at the time of catheterization; to begin an infusion study simply disinfect the septum and plug in the mating VAB95T tether. The recessed septum-piercing needle will make the fluid connection without exposing the fluid path to the environment.
