Feeding Needles

Plastic Feeding Tubes for Rats and Mice. Plastic rodent feeding needles reduce the risk of trauma and provide a simple, low cost, disposable solution for oral gavage. These feeding tubes feature medical grade materials to minimize the risk of interactions with test compounds. The tube is constructed of polypropylene, the same material used in plastic syringes. The soft, bulb-shaped tip is fabricated from medical grade silicone and is designed to prevent inadvertent placement in the trachea and reduce the risk of trauma and perforation. The feeding tubes are available in a variety of diameters and lengths for use in most small laboratory animals.
