The sterile single use 67 Intravenous Microdialysis Catheter is intended for continuous microdialysis monitoring in the peripheral venous system for up to three days. The 67 IV Microdialysis Catheter allows energy related metabolites, drugs and other small substances to diffuse into the catheter reflecting accurate concentrations in the blood.
The 67 IV Microdialysis Catheter is inserted by using a standard peripheral venous catheter (PVC) and can be used intravenously for up to 72 hours of monitoring. The clean samples and possibility for frequent sampling makes it ideal for clinical research. The catheter is available in 4 different versions of membrane and shaft lengths. Recovery performance is optimized by using the type with 30 mm membrane at 0.3 µl/min flow rate.
The catheter inlet tubing is connected to a Microdialysis Pump and the outlet ends in a microvial which collects the sample. The samples can be analyzed in the ISCUSflex Microdialysis Analyzer for Glucose, Lactate, Pyruvate, Glycerol, Glutamate and Urea or sent to the laboratory for further investigations.
