KOKEN Rat LM-046A

Outline

KOKEN Rat - Rat model for use in the training of animal testing techniques.
When various experimental procedures are conducted using laboratory
animals, it is important to restrain the animal properly and to develop
techniques that will meet the necessary experimental objectives. When an
inexperienced laboratory animal handler holds a rat for the first time , there is
a risk that the handler may be bitten or may accidentally drop the animal.
Therefore, KOKEN has developed the KOKEN Rat as a training tool. The
beginner can learn the techniques of proper holding of the animal, peroral
feeding, tail vein injection and blood collection, and endotracheal intubations.

  • When placed in the standard position, the resulting posture is the same as that of a living rat.
  • Dosage in the stomach can be confirmed through the transparent section of the abdomen.
  • Needle insertion into the tail vein can be confirmed by the reflux of imitation blood.
