Complete Anesthesia Systems

The complete anesthesia systems from Harvard Apparatus bundle the products needed in popular configurations. Options include: Tabletop Single Animal systems (with and without active scavenging) and a Mobile Anesthesia System.

Tabletop Single Animal Anesthesia System

  • Suitable for mice, rats and other small animals under 10 lbs (4.5 Kg)
  • Passive scavenging systems

MiniVac Active Scavenging Option

  • The MiniVac Gas Evacuation Unit is an active delivery and scavenging device that substantially reduces the risk of exposure to anesthetic vapors from your surgical area. The MiniVac is self-contained, remedying the need for ducting or special ventilation that is traditional with active scavenging. This stand-alone device is ideal for labs that do not have dedicated ventilation systems to safely remove anesthetic gasses.

Mobile Anesthesia System

The mobile anesthesia system includes the same features as the tabletop system, but with the added flexibility of moving the system to the desired location.

Small Animal Physiological Monitoring System

The Harvard Small Animal Physiological Monitoring System (HPMS) is an instrument integrating multiple physiology parameters on one single small platform. The objective behind this instrument is to provide superior monitoring results, while making surgery and other manipulations on small animals easier.

The platform integrates monitoring of the rectal temperature, electrocardiogram (ECG), respiration, oxygen saturation (SpO2), blood pressure and exhaled CO2(EtCO2). It also includes a controlled heating surface to maintain the animal’s body temperature at the desired level.

Key Features

  • Small footprint
  • Integrated and ergonomic
  • Intuitive touchscreen
  • Real-time numeric and graphic display
