Innovative drug infusion technology for laboratory animals.

100nl bicuculline intrahypothalmic injections       


Zaretsky et al. used iPRECIO® pumps to inject 100nl of bicuculline solution four times over 2 days. Telemetry recordings showed 4 distinct injections. Injections number 3 and 4 were obviously like injections 1 and 2 but blurred by the animal’s intrinsic activity before and during darkness.
