  • Range: Charles River has qualified HemaTIP™ to be used on mouse and rat species.
  • Speed: The tip only needs to touch the blood, and its super absorptive matrix media wicks a sample in 3–6 seconds.
  • Accuracy: The matrix media is engineered to wick exactly 20μl of blood, sufficient for preliminary and confirmatory serology testing.
  • Minimal stress: Your research model only needs to be restrained for the time it takes to collect a blood sample thus minimizing the time your model is out of its comfort zone.
