51610 - For Rats in a Stereotaxic Instrument
The 51610 Rat Anesthesia Mask is designed for delivery of gas aneshesia during stereotaxic surgery. The gas anesthesia mask is installed 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. Spent gas may be routed to recycling, exhaust or gas analysis instruments.
Anesthesia Masks enable gas anesthesia of rats in a Lab Standard™ (Product Number 51600), Rat Adaptor (Product Number 51621) or 51500 series of Stoelting Stereotaxic Instruments (sold separately).
50267-Anesthesia Platform and Rat Mask
The Gas Anesthesia Platform and Rat Mask (No. 50267) 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 animal’s teeth are placed over the incisor bar and the mask slid forward until the cone is snug about the animal’s nose, so no nose clamp is needed. The platform is then lifted onto an appropriate stereotaxic device, providing positioning of the animal that is perfect, automatic and effortless!
