Blowpipe and poison darts have been used by human beings as hunting and war weapons for hundreds of years, and are even found in use today by primitive cultures in South America.
It took many years of development to adapt these methods, with their animal-friendly advantages (for example the nearly noiseless firing of a dart with a very low force of impact), and make them suitable for use in veterinary medicine applications.
TELINJECT blowguns are made of carbon fiber reinforced plastic, and are available in many different sizes. A funnel-shaped mouthpiece facilitates the optimal blowing of air into the pipe.
TELINJECT syringes are made of a light, very durable artificial material.
The cannulen are similar to the intravenous needles use in human medicine. The laterally located needle openings are sealed with a small stopper that is stuck over the needle, but allows the needle point to protrude. On impact on the target animal, the cannule penetrates into the skin tissue, and the stopper is pushed back from the opening of the needle, which allows the contents of the syringe to be injected.
The aerodynamic Stabilizer – a feather-like puff of wool on the end of the syringe – serves to stabilize the flight path of the projectile after it leaves the blowgun.
