We tested the accuracy of the micropuncture technique by performing total collections of tubular fluid followed by immediate recollections from the same site. We studied thirty-one Wistar rats under different conditions of hydration and during maintenance infusions. To assure constancy of body fluid volumes the experiments were performed during continuous reinfusion of urine. Overall we performed 190 paired collections and immediate recollections from 147 proximal and 43 distal tubules. The… CONTINUE READING
