Alzet Catheters


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″).

Applications with ALZET Osmotic Pumps

  • Direct delivery of test agents pecisely into any target tissue or organ
  • Delay administration of test agents to allow for a surgical recovery period

Note: No catheter is necessary when systemic delivery is desired. This is accomplished by subcutaneous or intraperitoneal implantation of an ALZET pump without a catheter.
