The “LM” style Linear Microdialysis Probe is intended for microdialysis of soft tissues such as dermis, subcutaneous tissue, muscle, adipose, peritoneal organs, and other tissues.
The LM probe offer a small profile (320 µm OD) and consists of a short length of hollow dialysis fiber attached to smaller diameter flexible medical grade plastic inlet and outlet tubes. The microdialysis membrane is the larger diameter and so is directly in contact with the tissue. Via an internal fiber that strengthens the probe and extends beyond the probe tubing, the probe can be “threaded” into the tissue. A plug seals the end of the probe from which the fiber skeleton extends. This plug keeps body fluids from entering the probe during surgery and is cut off before the probe is connected to a syringe pump and perfused.
Linear microdialysis probes are available with either 5 mm or 10 mm active lengths of dialysis membrane. Custom probes with other membrane lengths are also available. “DL” probes may be a stock alternative to LM custom probes.
