ANYONE GOT ANY IDEAS ON HOW TO EXTRACT BLOOD FROM MICE- I FIND CARDIAC PUNCTURE VERY HIT AND MISS?
It depends on how much blood you need. The total blood volume in an animal's body equals approximately 6% of its total body weight. To prevent anemia for nonterminal bleeds the guideline is you can take a volume of 1% of the body weight every two weeks. I have found that orbital sinus bleeding works very well in the mouse model.
