Anesthesize a mouse
Make a standard incision on the dorsal tail vein using Simplate blades
Immerse the tail in NaCl 0.9% at 37.5ѓC
Record the time from the moment blood is observed to emmerge from the wound until cessation of blood flow
Alternatively you can perform a standard incision with an automatic device (Surgicutt; ITC, Edison, NJ) and every 15 secs apply a filter paper (Whatman 3MM) for 5 sec until the blood no longer stained it.
