Blood collection techniques Blood samples are routinely collected in safety studies to determine (1) direct test compound effects on the blood or bone marrow, (2) effects on other organs as indicated by the contents of the blood, for instance, leakage enzymes such as aspartate aminotransferase, and (3) blood levels of the test compound or its metabolites. A variety of techniques have been described for the collection of blood from the rat. The choice of a specific technique may depend upon factors such as (1) the volume to be collected, (2) if the animal is to survive the procedure, (3) the frequency with which samples will need to be collected, (4) whether anesthetics can be used, (5) likelihood 27 of the animal surviving the procedure, and (6) the impact of organ damage resulting from the procedure.

The heart may be located by placing the index finger over the 4th and 5th left ribs and the thumb on the right side of the thorax. The collection needle (25À26 gauge, 1À2 cm long) should be inserted at a 45-degree angle into the heart. Once the needle is introduced, the syringe should be aspirated slightly to produce a vacuum. The needle is then advanced until blood is obtained. Abdominal aorta and vena cava Collection from the abdominal aorta offers a convenient way to exsanguinate an animal and obtain a maximal amount of blood.

This allows for a continuous administration of small amounts of compound without the need for a jacket and tether system. Saphenous, lateral marginal, and metatarsal veins These veins in the leg and foot are easily visualized and can be injected without anesthesia; however, assistance is required. Shaving the area over the saphenous or lateral marginal vein makes visualization easier. During injection it is necessary for one technician to restrain the animal and occlude the vessel to cause it to dilate.
