1. Filament Specifications: The 6-0 filament size has a diameter ranging from 0.09 to 0.11 mm and a length of 20 mm, providing superb pushability for easy handling and excellent flexibility for reducing impact on Willis Circle.
2. Silicone Rubber Coating: With a diameter of 0.27 +/- 0.02 mm, the silicone rubber coating ensures smooth and controlled insertion, enhancing precision in your experiments. Such coating provides ideal dimensions for MCAO procedures in young rats within the body weight range of 100 +/- 10 grams. The coating extends 9-10 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 9-10 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.
