Automates on/off gas flow at the push of a button, delivering CO2 to individual induction chambers or Euthanex lids. The EA-32002C is designed for small scale use by individual investigators in their laboratories. The Controller has two separate and independent gas outputs – allowing up to two cages to be euthanized individually or staggered. This feature increases the user efficiency when individually euthanizing a large number of animals. The run and ready lights easily indicate outputs in operation. Operates at a fixed flow rate based on the external CO2 source.
Euthanex recommends pairing Flow Restrictors with our lids or Sure-Seal Chambers for the EA-32002C to avoid the need to adjust the incoming flow rate as the number of cages connected changes. Flow Restrictors are chosen according to your cage size and installed into the Euthanex lid or Sure-Seal Chamber. Using consistent pressure, the AVMA compliant flow rate will be delivered to each cage – regardless of the number of chambers in use.
SMARTBOX® Lab Control Unit and two color-coded EA-1130 Lab Unit Hoses (Lids sold separately)
EA-550 Regulator – (0 – 100 PSI Output) – EA-550 Connects directly to the CO2 cylinder with CGA-320 fitting. Capable of handling high flow rates. Incorporated electric heater keeps unit from freezing during operation.
EP-1150-P Preset Regulator – (0 – 50 PSI Output) Connects directly to the CO2 cylinder with CGA-320 fitting. For use with equipment that requires a specific incoming pressure. Preset at factory. Non-heated.
EP-IL60 Inline CO2 Regulator ( 0 – 60 PSI Output) – For use with house gas supply – not for use with cylinders.
Euthanex Lids allow for the treatment of animals in their home cages and are available in a range of sizes.
Flow Restrictors avoid the need to adjust the flow rate due to change in cage number and ensures AVMA compliance of CO2 flow using a set pressure.
