IV Self Administration - Rat

Instech infusion swivels, tethers, balance arms and catheters are compatible with a range of operant behavior systems for intravenous self administration studies. In these systems, a lever press or nose poke will trigger a syringe pump to deliver an IV dose.

 

Instech's Vascular Access Buttons and Harnesses are ideal for these addiction studies because the combined tether/IV line can be simply and aseptically connected or disconnected when moving the animal into or out of the operant chamber. Animals with Vascular Access Buttons may be group housed when not on study.

 

Operant chamber systems are available from the following manufacturers:
