Via a catheter, substances can be delivered into vessels, spinal cord, cerebral ventricles and brain parenchyma, and other organs or tissues. Alzet has a range of specialized catheters, compatible with ALZET pumps, to enable targeted delivery to a variety of sites. ALZET pumps can be attached to catheter tubing with I.D ranging from 0.58 mm to 0.76 mm(0.023″-0.030″).
