The Veterinary Bioscience Institute (VBI) in collaboration with the ALN magazine is proud to announce that they have an incredibly exciting webinar coming up that should excite the entire rodent-utilizing, biomedical community. This latest webinar is entitled Vascular Catheterization in Rodents, and it is hosted by Marcel Perret-Gentil, DVM, MS from the University of Texas and Szczepan Baran, VMD, MS from the Veterinary Bioscience Institute. Vascular catheterization of rodents is a procedure widely used in various areas of biomedical research, especially toxicology to allow repeated or constant intravenous administration of compounds and/or collection of multiple blood and lymph fluid samples. It is also useful for the measurements of blood pressure. This webinar is designed for beginners and is intended as an introduction to rodent catheterization. It will include a review of gross anatomy, catheterization materials and basic catheterization principles and techniques. During this webinar, participants will have the opportunity to observe mouse and rat jugular vein and carotid artery catheterization, including the proper selection, usage and handling of applicable surgical instruments and equipment. By the end of this webinar participants will be better able to plan and perform research experiments with their own rodent models using these catheterization techniques.
