CVP has hypobaric and hyperbaric chambers for long-term small animal exposure.
We offer the use of the hypobaric chambers to any investigator with an animal protocol which allows it.
The Altitude Chamber Room consists of two large, nine small and six medium hypobaric chambers, each with pressure individually adjustable from 5,000 to 19,000 feet simulated altitude. In addition, there are six small chambers, which allow us to simulate sea-level altitude.
The small chambers have the capacity of holding 2 to 4 cages of animals (depending on the animal model) and the large chambers have the capacity up to 12 cages (depending on the animal model). Chambers are available to rent at the cost of $10 per small barrel, $20 for Pelxiglass chamber and $60 for a big autoclave. If considering renting a chamber please contact Andy Poczobutt at firstname.lastname@example.org and Sarah Williams at email@example.com.
Orientation for new users is mandatory and should be set up with Sarah Williams.
