Introducing our Fine MCAO suture (Silicone Rubber-Coated Monofilament) - a precision-crafted microsurgical tool for inducing Middle Cerebral Artery Occlusion (MCAO) stroke model in mice. Crafted with meticulous attention to detail, this 70L1012 subtype is suitable for working on younger mice, delivering consistent and reliable infarct volume. Each pack contains 5 monofilaments.
1. Filament Specifications: The 7-0 filament size has a diameter ranging from 0.06 to 0.09 mm and a length of 20 mm, providing balanced excellence in both the needed flexibility and pushability for working on the delicated vasculature.
2. Silicone Rubber Coating: With a diameter of 0.19 +/- 0.01 mm, the silicone rubber coating ensures smooth and controlled insertion, enhancing precision in your experiments. Such coating provides ideal dimensions for MCAO procedures in mice within the body weight range of 18 +/- 2 grams. The coating extends 10-12 mm, catering to the needs of permanent MCAO or transient (less than 60 min) MCAO followed by reperfusion.
3. Suitable for Highly Skilled Surgeons and for MCAO models that requires the highest consistence of infarct volume: The 10-12 mm coating length is optimized for providing the highest consistence and reliability of infarct volume.
4. Reusable Design: Our silicone rubber-coated monofilament is crafted with durability and consistency in mind. The filaments are reusable, making them ideal for paired-control studies in pharmaceutical reaserch, and also a cost-effective choice for researchers who value both quality and efficiency.
