Cannulations Surgical Models

Taconic's cannulation procedures are typically performed several days prior to shipment to provide ample recovery time for the animals prior to transport. Cannulas are obtained from several manufacturers including: Access Technologies, SAI Infusions, and Instech Solomon. Patency is verified by the ability to withdraw a blood sample within 24 hours of shipment and is guaranteed upon receipt of animals.
