Reviews

Average 5 stars:
  • We are very pleased with our new SomnoFlo. We often need to work in a small space so the size of a conventional vaporizer can be annoying. The SomnoFlo fits where we need it and is simple to setup and use. We’ve recommended it to other labs in similar situations to ours.

  • -The system sits upright so takes less counter space
    -the system primes itself, empties itself and uses a bottle of isoflurane rather than the syringe – love this!
