lidsEuthanex lids allow for the treatment of animals in their home cages and are available in a range of sizes.

In the 1980s, Euthanex revolutionized the humane animal euthanasia process through the use of CO2 with our patented Euthanex Lid System. Euthanex lids allow animals to be gently euthanized through the precise control of gas introduction while they remain in their home cages, thereby minimizing added stress. The lid system is highly economical and efficient and still widely used today.

These heavy-duty, stainless steel lids include an easy, quick disconnect fitting for gas input and a foam gasket underside for a secure fit. The foam gasket seal allows each Euthanex lid to be used on a smaller cage size. Although the Euthanex lids come in a range of sizes, custom sizes are available.

flowRegulators and flow meters controls the output rate of gas from the CO2 source.

In general, regulators administer the rate of pressure from a CO2 cylinder outputing the gas in pounds per square inch (PSI). Flow meters are used with in-house or piped-in gas and output in liter per minutes (LPM) or cubic feet per hour (CFH) for higher flows. We offer a number of regulators that incorporate a flow meter so the gas output is measured as a flow rate – not pressure. READ MORE
