The SomnoSuite was specifically designed to be used with mice and rats. It is pre-calibrated for use with isoflurane, sevoflurane and desflurane. Typical “human-sized” vaporizers on the market today waste more anesthetic gas than you would actually use in a given procedure. Using the SomnoSuite during a typical 30-minute procedure using a gas concentration of 2.5% isoflurane, you use less than .3ml of isoflurane!
Dialing in the percent of anesthetic gas delivered to the animal is digitally controlled for exact precision and safety. Because you are using such a small amount of anesthetic and oxygen, there is very little exposure risk to you and your environment. A charcoal canister is included with all systems and easily attaches to the back of the Mouse Anesthesia Suite.
The SomnoSuite has a significantly smaller footprint on the lab bench compared to the traditional vaporizer and stand. The MouseVent™ Automatic Ventilator and MouseSTAT™ Pulse Oximeter are additional modules that can be integrated into the vaporizer unit, further reducing your overall footprint.
With the MouseVent Automatic Ventilator module, the anesthetic is delivered directly from the vaporizered anesthetic to the animal along the inspiratory line coming from the ventilator. This close proximity of the vaporized gas to the animal’s lungs allows you to use far less anesthetic than traditional vaporizers that require hook-up on the back side of the ventilator.
Includes conical induction chamber and nose cone mask.
Induction chamber included with the Mouse Kit is conical in design and measures 4 1/5" L x 2.25" DIA.
If you prefer a box design with sliding top, you can purchase the optional mouse chamber (SOMNO-0530SM). This chamber measures 4 1/4" W x 4 5/8" H x 9 1/4" D - Front to Back. This is ideal when working with multiple mice.
The induction chamber included with the Rat Kit is also conical in design and measures 9" L x 3" DIA.
If you are interested in a box-design with sliding top, you can purchase the optional rat chamber (SOMNO-0530LG). This measures 5 15/16" W x 5 3/4" H x 11 3/4" D - Front to Back.
Conical Chambers (one included with all systems) Box design with sliding (optional)
A standard nose cone is included with both the Mouse and Rat Kits. It measures 1 3/4" (44.5mm) DIA and has a diaphragm that is custom cut to create a seal. An optional nose cone (SOMNO-0525) is available that is specialzed for use with mice, with a diameter of 0.67" (17mm).
