Ventilators and Gas Anesthesia

Rodent Warmer, for body temperature control in laboratory rodents

The new Rodent Warmer can be used as a general war-ming system or with a rectal probe (sold separately) for more accurate, core temperature monitoring during pre- and post-op surgical procedures.

Features / Specifications

Ideal for use with mice and rats
Easy to use dial control
Heating Pad Included (mouse, rat, or home cage)


The new Rodent Warmer can be used as a general warming system or with a rectal probe (sold separately) for more accurate, core temperature monitoring during pre- and post-op surgical procedures:
Before: Heating pad can be placed underneath an induction chamber to reduce heat loss during anesthetic administration.
During: Place heating pad on a rodent surgery table or stereotaxic instrument to maintain and monitor temperature during surgical procedures, ventilation and anesthesia.
After: Cage heating pads can be placed in the animal’s home cage for faster recovery following surgical procedures.

Rodent Ventilator - volume controlled respirator

Rodent Ventilator is a positive pressure pump (according to Starling's Ventilator method), designed for use with guinea pigs, rats, mice and small birds.

Features / Specifications

Interchangeable cylinder/piston
Reliable mechanics
Silent operation & negligible R.F. broadcasting
External TTL to Pause the ventilator


Artificial ventilation, also called artificial respiration is any means of assisting or stimulating respiration in a subject which is not breathing or is not making sufficient respiratory effort on its own.
Mechanical ventilation is a method to mechanically assist or replace spontaneous breathing: this involves a machine called a shows the actual angular speed (RPM). At the end of a run, the display shows for each animal the running time, the rotation mode and the rotation speed at the time the animal fell off, combined with information preset by the user.

In the past decades, there has been a welcome increase in concern for the welfare of laboratory animal: increased use of Anesthetizing Systems is one of the results.
Anaesthetising laboratory animals is a significant improvement of research procedures, since it results in a lack of awareness of any potentially painful or distressing events: in fact, anaesthesia can be used to prevent pain during potentially painful procedures, such as surgery, or to provide a humane means of immobilising an animal for procedures, such as imaging.
When selecting a method of anaesthesia, it is important to consider the required depth and duration of anaesthesia and whether the method selected will cause the minimum of interference with the purpose of the research procedure. In addition the method of anaesthesia should ideally be simple to administer, without causing significant distress to the animal, free from undesirable side effects and allow a smooth and uncomplicated recovery.
Information on potentially suitable anaesthetic regimens can be obtained from a variety of sources, including the Named Veterinary Surgeon, and specialist laboratory animal anaesthesia and general veterinary anaesthesia textbooks
