The PinPort™, manufactured by Instech, provides fast, aseptic access to externalized rodent catheters for dosing or blood sampling. It can reduce study costs and improve compliance with the 3Rs. The system consists of a lightweight port (just three mm in diameter and 0.1g in length) and mating injectors. Port can be accessed via sterile injectors hundreds of times.

    • Quick. Infuse or withdraw from the catheter in a fraction of the time it takes with plugs and blunt needles.
    • Clean. The PinPort™ is a closed system that permits aseptic technique. This can reduce infection, improve patency and ultimately reduce the number of animals required for a study.
    • Safe. The injector is recessed and provides complete needle stick protection for personnel.

    Envigo is able to provide catheterized animals with a PinPort™ replacing the sterile stainless steel plug at the exteriorized end of the catheter. Envigo has developed an anchoring method for the PinPort™ whereby normal healing of the animal’s dorsal exit incision does not affect security and integrity of catheter. Animals must be singly housed.
