- Model 50264 (Gas Anesthesia Platform and Mouse Mask Pictured) can be used with the Mouse/Neonatal Rat Adaptor (model 51625) which is used on the ‘Rat and Mouse’ Lab Standard model stereotaxics, the Just for Mice (model 51725) or as a stand-alone platform for dorsal surgery.
- Model 50267 (Gas Anesthesia Platform and Rat Mask) allows for anesthetization and positioning of the rat outside of a stereotaxic device. It also is an ideal platform for dorsal surgery. The platform provides a means of easy movement of an anesthetized rat to and from a stereotaxic apparatus or other device.
- The Gas Anesthesia mask is installed over the incisor bar, with the cone opening toward the open â€œUâ€. The animal (rat or mouse) is installed by placing its teeth over the incisor bar, and sliding the adaptor forward until the cone is snug about the animalâ€™s nose, thereby substituting for the nose clamp. Once the teeth and the cone provide a snug, stable hold, the platform is lifted onto an appropriate stereotaxic device.
Stereotaxic Gas Anesthesia Masks With Platform
Anesthesia Masks enable gas anesthesia to be used with rats and mice while operating.The Gas Anesthesia Platform and Mask models provide for precise and secure positioning of an animal during anesthesia and surgery.
Gas Anesthesia Masks for Stereotaxics
Designed for mice or rats in a Stereotaxic Instrument. The Gas Adaptors for Stereotaxic instruments, enable gas anesthesia of rats or mice in a Lab Standardâ„¢ or other stereotaxic instrument, without exposing the researcher to the gas. The Gas Anesthesia mask is installed by removing the nose clamp from the standard rat adaptor, and sliding the adaptor over the incisor bar, with the cone opening toward the open “U”. The animal (rat or mouse) is installed by placing its teeth over the incisor bar, and sliding the adaptor forward until the cone is snug about the animal’s nose, thereby substituting for the nose clamp. The teeth and the cone provide a snug, stable hold. Anesthetic gas flows in the tubing connector, past the animal’s nose, and out the other side, where it may be routed to recycling, exhaust, or gas analysis instruments.
Mouse and Neonatal Rat Adaptor
This adaptor allows using mice and rats even if you only have a rat stereotaxic frame. This adaptor is designed for use with traditional ‘U’-framed stereotaxic instruments like the Classic Lab Standard series. Ear and bite bar heights can be independently adjusted to accommodate all needs.
