Animal Physiology

 Expensive research animals require specialized anesthesia and surgical equipment that is designed for their physiological needs. WPI provides laboratory equipment and products designed specifically for small animal research.

The animal temperature controller automatically adapts to the subject’s size.

Some surgeries (for example, neuroscience) require precise positioning of an animal, and a stereotaxic frame is critical.

Anesthesia systems must also be specially designed for the small animal physiology in order to keep the animals and the researchers safe.

During surgery, researchers may monitor blood pressure and other vitals. You want a blood pressure monitor that will not stress your rodents and small animals.

It is also critical to keep your animals warm without burning them during a surgery.

WPI offers a broad range of equipment and laboratory supplies that was designed for small animal physiology. Let us help you get the laboratory equipment that’s right for your research application.

Stereotaxic Frames for Neuroscience Research and More

A stereotaxic frame lets you safely and securely hold a small animal while you perform delicate procedures. Using our frames, you can accurately place a probe to within 10µm. We offer a variety from basic, single arm frames to dual arm, digital stereotaxic frames.

Anesthesia Equipment that is Safe for Small Animal Surgery

Isoflurane is commonly used for anesthesia for small animals like mice, rats and guinea pigs. The anesthesia systems for rodents fit snugly to prevent the isoflurane from leaking into the environment. Our anesthesia systems use valves regulated by the animal’s own breathing, activated charcoal filters and fitted nose cones to keep lab personnel safe.

Blood Pressure Monitoring, Non-Invasive and Directly

WPI offers options for monitoring the blood pressure of mice and rats. For minimal stress to the animal, we have a range of tail cuff monitors. We have another unit for precise arteriol or venous pressure that is measured inside vessels.

Precise Animal Temperature Control Critical in Surgery

Our animal temperature controller automatically adjusts based on the actual temperature of the subject to maintain the animal’s optimal body temperature.

Surgical Instruments and Laboratory Equipment

We have all the essential surgical instruments and laboratory supplies to support your small animal surgery needs.
