Introducing our Large 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 80L45 subtype is suitable for working on mouse stroke models, delivering consistent and reliable infarct volume. Each pack contains 5 monofilaments.
1. Filament Specifications: The 8-0 filament size has a diameter ranging from 0.04 to 0.05 mm and a length of 20 mm, providing the needed flexibility for working on vulnerable vasculature. It minimizes the stretch on Willis Circle.
2. Silicone Rubber Coating: With a diameter of 0.21 +/- 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 22 +/- 2 grams. The coating extends 4-5 mm, catering to the needs of MCAO followed by reperfusion.
3. Suitable for MCAO models that requires higher consistence of infarct volume: The 4-5 mm coating length is optimized for providing consistent and reliable infarct volume with enhanced performance for maneuverability.
