Mouse Brain "MBR" Intracerebral Guide Cannula

These guide cannulae fit BASi's "MBR" style brain microdialysis probes. There are two version of this guide; they differ in the length of the cannula. The MBR style guide cannula is primarily intended for use in mouse brain microdialysis or dorsal or adjacent multiple rat brain implants. It can be used for other applications also.

The cannula lengths are optimized to reach anywhere in the mouse or rat brain. Custom cannula lengths are available.


  • MBR 5 microdialysis probes are small and lightweight to accommodate a fragile mouse skull. They can reach anywhere in a mouse brain, or can be used for dorsal rat brain sampling.
  • MBR 10 microdialysis probes are suitable for ventral implants in rats or for multiple implant sites. They can reach anywhere in a rat brain.
  • MBR microdialysis probes can be implanted as close as 2.5 mm on center without a guide cannula or 3.2 mm on center with a guide cannula.
