Mouse and Perinatal Rat Ventilator (Model 687), Single Animal, Volume Controlled

Mouse and Perinatal Rat Ventilator (Model 687)

The Model 687 Mouse Ventilator is for mice and perinatal rats up to 200 g (7 oz). It has a single piston and cylinder assembly. The tidal volume range is 0.1 to 1 cc in 0.1 cc increments. Setting the cylinder stroke between gradations it is possible to achieve finer resolution in tidal volume settings. The piston travels to the end of the cylinder completely emptying the cylinder and minimizing the dead space of the breathing circuit.

Features a numerical LED to display the respiratory rate which can be set from 18 to 150 strokes/minute. Volume and rate settings can be adjusted while the ventilator is running.

  • For mice and perinatal rats up to 200 g (7 oz) 
  • CE approved

The 687 ventilator has four gas inlet and outlet ports: supply gas in, gas out (to animal), gas return (from animal) and ventilator exhaust. The ventilator exhaust can be attached to a column of water to achieve PEEP (positive end expiratory pressure) when long term animal ventilation is necessary.

Overhaul kits are available for the 687 ventilator model and is specific for the type of cylinder used. Overhaul kits include complete instructions and replacement parts.
