Introducing our Superfine 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 60L56C subtype is instrumental for skilled surgeons working on mouse stroke models, delivering consistent and reliable results for your experiments. Each pack contains 10 monofilaments.
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 0.20 +/- 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 mice within the body weight range of 20 +/- 2 grams. The coating extends 5-6 mm, catering to the needs of permanent MCAO or transient MCAO (less than 90 min) followed by reperfusion.
3. Suitable for MCAO models that requires higher consistence of infarct volume: The 5-6 mm coating length is optimized for providing consistent and reliable infarct volume with balanced performance for maneuverability.
