SomnoFlo® Setup and Mouse Anesthesia Protocol

Demonstrating the Precision of Low-Flow Anesthesia Systems Observing the Tail Curl Reaction in an Anesthetized Mouse


  • We actually did order a SomnoFlo and we like it a lot. We just ordered a second one.

  • We ended up purchasing the Somnoflo and it works amazing. We also have received great customer service whenever we have needed help/ and or have had questions about the product.

  • The SomnoFlo has a significantly smaller footprint than the standard isoflurane cart; our procedure room feels like it’s doubled in size since replacing the cart that was in the middle of the it with the SomnoFlo on the counter. I used to trip over the legs of the isoflurane cart almost daily, and I’m delighted to have it out of the room. Being able to use room air instead of oxygen is a huge bonus - no more monitoring how much oxygen we have left in the tank or stressing over whether the tank will be replaced on time before our next surgery.
    The SomnoFlo has made our lives much easier.

  • Wanted to check in since receiving the SomnoFlo that we ordered a few months ago. The system works amazing! All our lab members have had a chance to use the system and we are highly impressed with the efficiency of the machine and how quickly we are seeing the mice wake up from anesthesia after finishing our procedures with them.

  • We actually purchased one of the SomnoFlo units a few months ago and have been using it with our rodent procedures. It has worked great and all of our users seem to love the system.
