The acrylic rabbit immobilizer, also known as a rabbit restrainer, is a device used to hold and immobilize laboratory rabbits during procedures such as injections, blood collection, and other experimental procedures. The immobilizer typically consists of an acrylic tube with a removable front and back panel, which allows the rabbit to be placed inside. Once the rabbit is inside, the panels are replaced, holding the rabbit securely in place. The immobilizer also has a handle for easy handling and moving.
The Rabbit Immobilizer is a commonly used tool in laboratory research on rabbits, as it allows for the safe and efficient handling of the animals during procedures. It is designed to minimize stress and injury to the rodent while providing easy access to the animal for the researcher. The acrylic material is also easy to clean and sterilize, which is essential for maintaining the health and well-being of the rodent and preventing contamination of the experiments.

The Bowman-style rodent restrainer is a device used to hold and immobilize laboratory mice and rats during procedures such as injections, blood collection, and other experimental procedures. The restrainer typically consists of an acrylic or metal rod with a clip or clamp at one end, which is used to hold the animal’s head in place. The animal’s body is then gently held by the experimenter’s hand, allowing easy access to the rodent’s tail or other areas of the body.
Rodents can be placed by removing the upper rods and replacing them after insertion. Alternatively, they can be placed through an access porthole in the rear. The front door can be adjusted and locked into three possible positions. This door has stainless steel “spring loaded” lock. Suction cup feet on the white plastic base secure the device during use.

Broome Rodent Restrainer is one of the most convenient types of restrainer for ease of use as it allows for both hands to be used when injecting the test subject’s caudal vein. Our Broome restrainer is made up of the finest quality acrylic and comes in a variety of sizes. Choosing the right size of the restraint is vital; if the restraint is too large the animal can easily turn around, and if the restraint is too small the animal might not be able to breathe properly.
Broome rodent restrainer is a cylindrical device that is closed on one end. An open groove extends from the opening to the center of the endplate for the adjustment of the nosepiece. On the adjacent side of the open groove, a slit that runs the entire length of the tube aids to get access to the rodent’s tail.

Ferret Restrainers are constructed using optical quality clear acrylic, formed black plastic nose cone with an acetal locking slide. The restraining cylinder can be rotated as needed to provide complete access to the animal. The restrainers are mounted on a white acrylic base plate with suction cup feet to guarantee reliable stability during testing procedures.

Flat Bottom Restrainers are manufactured from perspex cylinders mounted on a flat black perspex base. The restrainers give access through both extremes, by opening the respective tilting door that is fixed by a screw at the upper part of the restrainer. Rodents can be immobilised by sliding the doors along the restrainer. A slot in the base of the door allows for the whole tail to be available for the pulse transducer and cuff installation, the i.v. drug administration or blood extraction.
The easy operation of the doors and its disposition on the extremes of the restrainer makes the manipulation of the animal convenient and avoids the animal to be dragged backwards, protecting it from injuries.
ConductScience offers Flat Bottom Restrainers.
