MBR Style Brain Guide Cannula

Back to probes

These guide cannulae fit BASi™s œMBR 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.
