► No external connections or researcher intervention required during infusion
► Save time by eliminating the need for frequent animal handling and repetitive injection schedules
► ALZET mini-pumps are available in small sizes for use in mice and young rats (bigger sizes available for rats and larger animals)
► Rates & Durations of pumps
There are 12 models of ALZET Osmotic Pumps in 3 physical sizes, and a variety of release rates and durations (*Note that nominal performance data is listed below. Individual lots of pumps will vary from this target within limits. The specific data for each lot of pumps should be used for dose calculations).These mini-pumps deliver drugs, hormones, and other test agents at continuous and controlled rates, for durations ranging from one day to six weeks, without the need for external connections or frequent handling.
