The MH-250 Medium Rat Restraint is designed to keep both the animal and handler safe in today's life science research lab. The restraint comes complete with an adjustable nose restraint and tightening knob to accommodate varying animal sizes. By drawing the tail into the holder through the appropriate machined slot, the nose piece can then be easily inserted and tightened to secure the animal. The tail first entry provides easy accessibility to the tail vein for bleeds or injections. A hole in the round, nylon nose piece allows for easy breathing of the secured animal. Four, round 1/2" access ports on two sides of the unit, along with slots for the tightening knob--and tail insertion--on the opposite two sides, permit access for subcutaneous injections. The rugged restraint tube is manufactured from 1/4" cast acrylic and measures 2.5-inches in diameter. It can be easily cleaned and disinfected for years of repeat use.
IBI offers an accessory stand (MH-500) that holds the Rat Restraint at a 45 degree angle for easy access to the tail and other areas. See available parts and accessories below.
The nose restraint with tightening knob (MH-25) can also be purchased as a replacement part.
