for general surgical work on small animals


Panlab features a set of operating board for general surgical work on small laboratory animals. These one-piece molded boards hold rodents and other small animals during surgery and provide excellent access to the entire length of the animal. Four slots are positioned in the corners of the platform for allowing large and small animals to be held firmly in place. The platform has grooves running both its length and width for drainage or placement of the flushing line during surgery. The tables are mounted on a traditional tripod stand allowing the platform to easily tilt in various directions. Non-slip feet insure a stable position of the system during the whole surgery process.

Two different models are available: 

- The Panlab OT100 Rodent Surgery Table offers a convenient, non-absorbent and easy-to-clean PVC platform. The middle part of the platform is also provided with a set of longer slots for fixing some user-defined surgical accessories.

- The Panlab OT200 Rodent Surgery Table is a homoeothermic table allowing the control of animal temperature during surgery. The operating board is constructed of an extremely durable anodized aluminium platform allowing a uniform heat distribution. The heat of the platform is maintained by the HB 121 Control Unit, working with a DC power supply to minimize any AC ripple interference with the registration of some animal physiological measurements, such as electrocardiogram. The unit allows the user to adjust the body temperature between 34 to 45°C. The heat is maintained by the table-associated temperature probe or a rectal thermistor probe. Table heat and animal body temperatures can be visualized simultaneously on two different displays on the HB121 control unit.
