Blood Collection in Swine
Blood collection from swine, especially larger animals, has been described as difficult. However, methods of blood collection and guidelines for sampling volumes applicable to research have been developed. The purpose of this manuscript is to provide guidance on the collection of blood samples from swine used for biomedical research projects.
