Urinary System

Urinary System Tissue

  • KP - Kidney: Single kidney without vascularity. (1/2” of renal artery attached.)
  • RA - Renal Arteries: Right and left individual renal arteries.
  • RAAA - Renal Arteries with Abdominal Aorta: Right and left renal arteries attached to the abdominal aorta which is approximately 2” in harvested length. All are skeletonized.
  • RVVC - Renal Veins with Vena Cava: Right and left renal veins attached to 2” of harvested length of the vena cava.  All are skeletonized.
  • RUB - Renal Urinary Block: Right and left kidneys, renal arteries, and veins attached to the aorta and vena cava, urethra, urinary bladder, and ureters.  All tissues are in an intact tissue block.
  • RUBNV - Renal Urinary Block without the Venous System: Right and left kidneys with each renal artery attached to the abdominal aorta, urethra, urinary bladder, and ureters.  All tissues are in an intact tissue block.
  • RVC - Renal Vascular Complex: Right and left kidneys with their renal arteries attached to the abdominal aorta and their renal veins attached to the vena cava. Dissected/skeletonized.
  • RVCND - Renal Vascular Complex - Not dissected: Right and left kidneys with their renal arteries attached to the abdominal aorta and their renal veins attached to the vena cava. This block is not dissected/skeletonized.
  • RABDA - Renal Artery Block - Dissected and packed in adipose: Right and left kidneys attached to the abdominal aorta with both renal arteries.  This block is dissected/skeletonized and then wrapped in adipose to retain moisture to the tissues.
  • URET - Ureters: Both ureters harvested in full length (9”).
  • UB - Urinary Bladder: The bladder itself without any attachments.
  • UBT - Urinary Bladder Block: This tissue block includes the urinary bladder, both ureters, urethra, and optional prostate.  Specify the sex of the animal.
  • UBP - Urinary Bladder with Prostate: The urinary bladder with urethra and prostate.
  • URI - Urine: This fluid is collected as a standard of 500 ml.  Any amount can be specified.  Urine is harvested from males.

The Value of Animal Growth Charts in Biomedical Research

Our porcine growth chart allows clients to know the expected rate (average daily gain) of growth over time of our Yorkshire cross bred swine herd at all ages.
