Product Information

An animal is placed in the induction chamber and it is filled with halogenated gas mixed with oxygen until the animal loses consciousness.  Once unconscious, the animal is removed.  When the chamber is opened to remove the animal the highly volatile anesthetic gas saturates the breathing zone of all those in the immediate area.


Current research demonstrates induction boxes are one of the greatest sources of exposure to waste anesthetic gas and waste anesthetic gas has been shown to pose a risk to human health. (See References)


Flushing induction chambers used for rodent anesthesia to reduce waste anesthetic gas, describes and tests the ICE Box ability to reduce exposure to waste anesthetic gas.  

The ICE Box is portable, high-throughput, and adaptable.  It seamlessly links into existing halogenated gas anesthetic systems.
