Safe Niche Science Introduces the ICevac
The ONLY Small Animal Induction Chamber Unit that is Portable, Adaptable, and Eliminates 99% of WAG
Janet Wolforth worked in small animal practice from 1986 - 1996. She has been working in medical research, training personnel and providing technical support, since 1996. As a Licensed Veterinary Technician and Laboratory Animal Technologist, she understands first hand the dangers and risk associated with exposure to WAG- in both small animal practice and medical research. Determined to find a solution to make her own workplace safer, she invented the ICevac- an induction chamber evacuation system that eliminates 99% of WAG.
Protect Yourself and Your Team from the Health Risks Associated with WAG
Waste Anesthetic Gas is a danger to anyone exposed to it. The ICevac system makes anesthetizing mice, rats, rabbits and cats less traumatizing for the animal, and much safer for people. For Researchers and Veterinarians, using our induction chamber evacuation system is key to avoiding the short-term effects of WAG, such as dizziness, nausea, headaches, irritability, poor judgment and fatigue; as well as the long-term effects, like stimulation of alcohol and drug addiction, miscarriages, birth defects, sterility and cancer.
How the Safe Niche Science ICevac System Works
Safe Niche Science ICevac system converts from passive to active scavenging to remove waste gas. Waste gas filters through an activated charcoal canister and returns to the room as fresh air. The ICevac system is custom made in Michigan, complete with gaskets that prevent the chamber from leaking. The end result is an evacuation system that does not leak, provides for a fast induction time, and creates a safe environment for personnel.
SNS ICevac system is approved by UM OSEH and used in UM laboratories in Chemistry, Physiology, Cardiology, and Cardiac Surgery. The system is also used in veterinary practices in Michigan, including; Humane Society Huron Valley and Oakland Veterinary Referral Services, as well as practices in California, Illinois, and Pennsylvania.
