Tubing and Adaptors
Different kinds of FEP tubing are available depending on your specific needs.
Tubing adapters are used to connect all the components ensuring it becomes a leak free system.The adapters are soaked in alcohol for a few minutes prior to use, allowing them to expand slightly. Once the adapter is put in place the alcohol evaporates and the adapters shrink, creating a tight connection with no dead volume.

Probe Clip and In Vitro Stand
The probe clip allows easiest handling during the fixing (cementing) of the guide cannula and fits in the black plastic part of the in vitro stand. The steel rod is fixed to the probe clip and is used as an adaptor to the stereotaxic equipment.

The Liquid Switch is designed for the option of perfusing one probe with two different perfusion media without introducing air or interrupting the constant flow through the probe. It is also designed for ease of use and simple maintenance. To clean between experiments, perfuse with water and flush the Ringer’s out properly. The switch can easily be taken apart and the individual parts washed separately in an ultra sonic bath.

Dual Channel Swivel and Metal Guide Cap
The swivel, a device that rotates to keep the catheter from tangling, is a critical part of any continuous animal infusion system. The swivel can withstand pressures up to 2 bars and may be cleaned by rinsing with ethanol and water.
The Metal Guide Cap is made from aluminium and serves as a protection for the guides when animals are kept together between surgery and start of the microdialysis experiment. The cap fits all but MAB 8 Guide and is easy to put in place.
