Delivering one of the essential five freedoms – The New GM500 Mouse Mezzanine

We all understand the importance of mice having the freedom to exhibit natural behaviours in a stress free environment and the benefit to the Science. This is not always easy to provide, but Tecniplast continue to develop innovative enrichment to ensure animals in our caging systems have the opportunity to live as naturally as possible.

We are proud to announce a new feature that fits our standard green line IVC caging system – the Mouse Mezzanine; this new enrichment product ensures mice can have the freedom they need.

The new Mouse Mezzanine fits to the standard diet hopper and gives a 3rd dimension for the mice to explore. Each mezzanine can be transferred between cages during cage change whilst remaining attached to the wire bar lid. It is an excellent use of space and allows your animals to express natural behaviours.

It also fully complies with Code of Practice Section 2 Chapter 1 Para. 3.3.2 Enrichment which states All animals shall be provided with space of sufficient complexity to allow expression of a wide range of normal behaviour
