West Lafayette, Indiana -- Contract research services company BASi announced the launch of a new automated in vivo sampling system designed to collect blood and other samples from pigs and large mammals.

Called the Culex-L, the system utilizes a harness that allows the animal nearly complete freedom of movement while permitting computer controlled dosing and sampling.

“It is truly exciting for BASi to launch the next phase of our Culex instrumentation. The pig has become especially valuable to PK/PD and toxicology studies because of its similarities to humans,” Craig Bruntlett, director of BASi’s Instrumentation Division said. “The Culex-L significantly reduces handling-induced stress in pigs, yet accurately collects blood and other biological fluids from which drug concentrations can be measured, and records physiological data such as blood pressure, body temperature, ECG, respiratory and heart rates.”
