SomnoSuite Low-Flow Anesthesia System

Starting at $4,975

SomnoSuite is our innovative low-flow anesthesia delivery system designed specifically for mice and rats. Unlike traditional vaporizers, the SomnoSuite is engineered with a precision syringe pump and integrated digital vaporizer which uses either room air or compressed gas to deliver anesthesia at low flow rates proportionate to the animal's size. Using less anesthesia not only benefits the animal during procedures, but significantly reduces the risk of exposure to lab personnel from waste anesthesia gas.

Complete SomnoSuite set ups for Mice include a small low profile anesthesia mask set, a 1.25L sliding top induction chamber, a 5 ml syringe for anesthesia and one waste gas canister

Complete single-channel set-up for Rats include a large low profile anesthesia mask set, a 3L sliding top induction chamber, a 10 ml syringe for anesthesia and one waste gas canister.

Features & Benefits

SomnoSuite Videos

See why the SomnoSuite low-flow anesthesia is safer for you and your animals, offering higher precision over traditional systems.

See a detailed demonstration of how to set up and operate the SomnoSuite low-flow anesthesia system, which provides both automated and manually adjustable options for precise airflow and anesthesia delivery based on animal body weight.

The SomnoSuite smart low-flow anesthesia system can deliver isoflurane using ambient air or compressed oxygen, increasing the flexibility of your setup. See how to set your SomnoSuite to use ambient air or compressed gas.

The SomnoSuite is electronically calibrated, so no annual calibration or re-certification is required. This low-flow electronic vaporizer maintains accurate anesthesia delivery with solid state electronics, hardware, and software, rather than passive vaporization and moving mechanical parts.

Calculation Based on:
  • Flow rate of 0.2 L/min for SomnoSuite & 2 L/min for Traditional
  • Iso Concentration of 2%
  • Annual calibration cost of $200 – $300* for Traditional.
  • Average cost of a typical 250 mL bottle size of Iso is $35:
    Volume x $35 x 4 = $Cost/year
  • Compressed gas fees vary from academia to pharma. Most tanks are rented with fees for tank fill/replacement averaging ~ $1,000/year.
  • Calculations are based upon a specific customer request, and can be adjusted to other specific uses.

With the RoVent Automatic Ventilator add-on module, the vaporized anesthetic is delivered directly to the animal along the inspiratory line coming from the ventilator. This close proximity of the vaporized gas to the animal’s lungs allows you to use far less anesthetic than traditional vaporizers, which require hook-up on the back side of the ventilator.

Uses Less Anesthetic Gas

The SomnoSuite is specifically designed to be used with mice and rats. It is pre-calibrated for use with both isoflurane and sevoflurane. Typical “human-sized” vaporizers on the market today waste more anesthetic gas than you would actually use in a given procedure. Using the SomnoSuite during a typical 30-minute procedure at a gas concentration of 2.5% isoflurane results in using less than .3 mL of isoflurane! It is capable of anesthetizing up to 2 mice simultaneously. The internal pump allows you to use room air or you may hook it directly to a compressed gas source. If you need to anesthetize more than two mice or multiple rats, check out our traditional multi-animal systems, capable of anesthetizing up to 6 animals.

Reviews

Average 5 stars:
  • I've been using the platform (SomnoSuite) for many years now, and I wouldn't exchange it with anything.

  • We are extremely satisfied with our Somnosuite purchase. This is the third system we have purchased for our lab. All of the researchers who are using those systems like the size of the system, the lower isoflurane exposure, and the incorporation of the RightTemp module for their monitoring purposes. The systems have worked well, and on those occasions when repairs have been needed Kent has been great about working with us to get them repaired in a timely fashion.

  • I love working with you guys. I’ve always had great service and you are so easy to work with. I recommend your products to our investigators all the time.

  • I will say I am a fan of Kent Scientific and what they offer for small animal surgery solutions. I am a long time user of the Somnosuite and just recently got the new version (touch screen).

    First reactions are I REALLY like the ability to control the syringe removal and prime speeds with the knobs, and also the fact that I do not have to calibrate the syringe volume. I have used the system now for about 30 mice surgeries , and over 40 hours of mouse imaging using the Vevo 3100 ultrasound. I love the fact that it used less iso and charcoal.

  • I love the SomnoSuite. It's extremely easy to use and delivers the minimum amount of anesthetic, which is an important factor in our diseased rodents that are susceptible to anesthetic side effects, especially at higher doses.
