Quietek™ Automated Euthanization Device Ensures AVMA Compliance
Works on wide range of chamber sizes - models are available for chamber sizes as
small as 0.5L to as large as 200L providing flow rates from 0.05LPM to 60LPM. Now you can ensure that your laboratory rodents are humanely euthanized without disrupting your laboratory workflow. Introducing the Quietek, the only affordable, fully-automated device specifically designed to comply with 2013 AVMA guidelines.
Adheres to Stringent New Guidelines
The new 2013 AVMA Guidelines for Euthanasia of Animals state that the flow rate for lab rodent C02 euthanasia systems should displace 10% to 30% of the chamber or cage volume/min. Prefilled chambers are now unacceptable. The NIH requires all new research plans and renewals to be evaluated using these guidelines.
Takes the Guesswork Out of Euthanasia
Designed by animal research facility managers and scientists, this easy to use, accurate system ensures that you correctly administer CO2 by automatically calculating gas delivery for your cage volume and desired fill rate. CO2 conditions will be consistent every time, thereby eliminating a source of variation.
Fail-Safe and Easy to Operate
All you need to do is push the start button. There are no valves to turn (or accidentally leave open) between runs and no regulators to adjust. Ideal for the inexperienced, sleep deprived, or overworked laboratory technician. The Quietek also features a key lock that prevents unwanted or accidental tampering with the settings.
Reduces Impact on Your Lab
The Quietek seamlessly integrates into your current protocols. Use it with most common chambers or cages. Lids are available in several sizes.
