If You Use Induction Chambers to Anesthetize Animals, You Are at Risk.

The ICevac system improves safety for personnel AND reduces stress for the animal.

The SNS ICevac System is adaptable to any existing anesthetic machine.

Faster induction times

Our baffle system allows anesthetic gas to immerse the induction chamber quickly and efficiently. As anesthetic gas is entering the chamber, the baffle disrupts and redirects the flow of the incoming gas to all four sides of the chamber. This results in a faster, less stressful induction for the animal.

Active scavenging

Turn the ICevac on before opening the chamber to remove the anesthetized animal. The ICevac system quickly removes WAG from inside the chamber, making it safer for staff.

No leak guarantee

Every Safe Niche Induction Box and ICevac system is built by hand in Michigan. If you are not completely satisfied with our product we'll refund your money.

"A great addition to my practice"

Janet Wolforth

Owner of SNS and Inventor of the ICevac System

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 makes using an induction chambers safer for her and less stressful for animals she cares for.

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 stressful 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, and fatigue; as well as long-term effects, like cognitive decline, liver and kidney disease and stimulation of drug and alcohol addiction.

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.
