These flexible plastic feeding tubes reduce the risk of trauma and provide a simple, low cost, disposable solution for rodent oral gavage. These feeding tubes feature medical grade materials to minimize the risk of interactions with test compounds. The tube is constructed of polypropylene, the same material used in plastic syringes. The soft, bulb-shaped tip is fabricated from medical grade silicone and is designed to prevent inadvertent placement in the trachea and reduce the risk of perforation.
The feeding tubes are available in a variety of diameters and lengths for use in rodents ranging in size from mouse pups to rats to hamsters, guinea pigs and rabbits. If you are just starting out request a sample pack to determine which size works best for you.
