SOMNOSUITE VS TRADITIONAL SYSTEMS

In studies, SomnoSuite has been shown to reduce gas exposure in the lab so it is well below NIOSH guidelines.  Learn more

All-in-one low-flow SomnoSuite anesthesia system delivers safety and efficiencies

Safety for both rodents and investigators
SomnoSuite is a digital system providing precision low flow rates of gas for safe, effective anesthesia induction of mice and rats, and improved lab safety.

There are no excessive doses, as administered by traditional “human-sized” vaporiser systems.

Typically SomnoSuite supplies less than 1mL of isoflurane per hour. This helps to prevent any harmful exposures to volatile anesthesia gases.

Better animal outcomes
The system includes a far infrared warming pad to keep animals warm and safe during procedures.

Included Modules monitor temperature and provide homeothermic control. Optional Modules further extend capabilities: automatic ventilator, pulse oximeter and end-tidal CO2.

Efficiencies and savings

  • Easy to use
  • A small footprint saves lab space
  • Reduction of anesthesia gas usage saves money and follows best practices for lab safety
  • The convenient option to use room air instead of oxygen, provides additional savings and frees up more space
  • Requires no regular calibration or recertification, reducing downtime and boosting efficiency

CUSTOMER REVIEWS

“The precise control of anesthetic allows me to use less than 1cc of ISO during my 8-hour recording. The SomnoSuite is highly reliable and fully automatic…fits easily into my small lab space. I highly recommend this product.”

“a game-changer for our lab”

“it can be used with multiple animals at the same time, and many other functions that analog systems do not offer. Our lab uses only SomnoSuite, and I propose the system to other colleagues as well.”
