ALZET® Osmotic Pumps
Small, implantable pumps for research in mice, rats, and other laboratory animals.
The unique mechanism by which ALZET pumps operate, allows compounds of any molecular conformation to be delivered predictably at controlled rates, independent of their physical and chemical properties.
These minipumps deliver drugs, hormones, and other test agents at continuous and controlled rates, for durations ranging from one day to six weeks, without the need for external connections or frequent handling. Their unattended operation eliminates the need for repeated nighttime or weekend dosing by lab personnel.
ALZET minipumps can be used for systemic administration when implanted subcutaneously or intraperitoneally. They can also be attached to a catheter for intravenous, intracerebral, intra-arterial infusion, or targeted delivery.
