• Anesthesia delivery system designed specifically for research
• Multiple, individually controlled stations in a single unit
• Unique rodent circuit, mask and diaphragm system for safe, effective anesthetic agent delivery
• Use with lab animal evacuation system
The Multi-Station Research Anesthesia System is the latest technology for rodent and small animal anesthesia. The multi-station unit offers a base unit with multiple stations each individually controlled. The master flowmeter and auxiliary flowmeters all receive the same gas supply. The master flowmeter combined with an anesthetic vaporizer, Tech3, Tech4 or Ohio style, see page F21, are used to set the maximum percentage of anesthetic agent delivered to each station. Using the auxiliary flowmeters, the percentage of anesthetic agent can be diluted using the fresh gas supply from the auxiliary flowmeter. Using an easy-to-follow flow chart, each individual station can deliver a different percentage of anesthetic agent as needed, without effecting any other station.
The unique rodent circuit, 72-3026 features a coaxial tube used in conjunction with a mask. By placing the animal’s nose into the mask diaphragm, it receives the delivered gas/anesthetic agent mixture. Three different size diaphragms are available. The waste gas exhaled from the animal and any unused gas delivered by the anesthesia machine, is pulled around the inner cone through the outside hose of the Rodent Circuit. This waste gas can be removed from the breathing circuit using either in-house vacuum or the Lab Animal Evacuation system, 72-3066. The unit is a simple to use, safe and effective anesthetic delivery and evacuation system designed specifically for laboratory research use.
The Multi-station Research Anesthesia system is available with two (2), four (4), or six (6) stations. It is supplied with an operational manual, station hoses, rodent circuits which include, a mask, hose and a medium diaphragm and endcaps. A
vaporizer, see page F21, and evacuation system must be purchased separately.
An alternative to the Lab Animal Evacuation system is to connect each rodent
circuit exhaust/exhalation line to it’s own F-Air Filter canister.
