Rodent Anesthesia Machines Available in BRB
Research Animal Resources has 2 rodent isoflurane anesthesia machines for use in the Broadway Research Building procedure rooms. One machine is dedicated for use only in Suite 16 High Risk Return. Both machines are available free of charge and are stored outside the supervisor's office. Although use of the machines is free, to avoid cross-contamination, you must purchase your own breathing circuits, nosecones, scavange canisters, etc.
Training is required prior to use and will take about 30-45 minutes. To sign up for training, contact Lauren Brzezenski.
Machines are available Monday through Friday for either morning (8am - 12pm) or afternoon (12:30pm to 4pm) use. To reserve a machine, email Lauren Brzezenski, Candace Wolfe and Jackie Gwynn with your name, PI, date, morning or afternoon and suite number/letter. You must come to Ross 459 just prior to your reservation to pick up the key for the machine.
After use, the machine must be returned to its original area and locked. The key must then be promptly returned to Ross 459 for the next lab to use.
**A fee will be charged if the machine or key is not returned on time or if the machine is damaged due to misuse or neglect.**
