ALZET minipumps can be used for systemic administration of experimental agents when implanted subcutaneously or intraperitoneally. They can also be attached to a catheter for intravenous, intra-arterial, or intrathecal infusion. ALZET pumps can also be connected to brain cannulae for delivery to the cerebral ventricles or brain tissue. ALZET pumps have been used for targeted delivery of test agents to a wide variety of sites, including the spinal cord, spleen, liver, organ or tissue transplants, wound healing sites, etc.
