About Harvard Apparatus/Instech Swivels

The swivel, a device that rotates to keep the cannula from tangling, is a critical part of any continuous animal infusion system. The Harvard/Instech Fluid Swivels have been in laboratory use for more than 30 years and have earned a reputation as the finest in the industry. Every swivel is precision machined to ensure ease of rotation, durability and reliability. The design minimizes internal dead volume and eliminates stagnant regions along the fluid path. Fluids passing through the swivel touch only stainless steel tubing and special self-adjusting PTFE seals.

Harvard Apparatus also has a variety of complete infusion systems that contain the equipment you need to carry out an infusion study. Please visit our website for details at www.harvardapparatus.com. Custom swivels available by special order. Call for details.
