TAPERCATH™ ROUNDED TIP CATHETERS

 

AVA Biomedical has a full line of specialty catheters designed specifically with the 

preclinical researcher in mind.  All of our catheters are manufactured with the 

latest and highest grade materials. 

 

The TaperCath™  polyurethane catheters represent a new concept in catheter design.

The catheter is designed to over-come problems associated with other 

long term catheters.  The benefits of this technology are 

maximized fluid dynamics, kink resistance, and a very smooth surface. 

 

The taper of the catheter allows for the use of

a universal portal connector pin, which will allow

the researcher more flexibility before and during 

surgery.  

 

The proximal end of the catheter has maximum wall thickness 

to decrease the likelihood of kinking, while the distal end is an 

atraumatic thin wall with a polished tip.  

 

We have over 18 years of custom catheter development and have created 

catheters for almost all applications and species.  We can save you time and 

frustration by letting you know what works and what doesn’t.

TAPERCATH™ XL CATHETERS

 

AVA Biomedical has designed the only 84” continuous length tapered catheter

for large animal swivels. The TaperCath XL’s are manufactured with the 

latest and highest grade materials.
