It is suitable for many purposes including: Animal transportation, Quarantine, Contingency caging in case of an emergency, Temporary housing solutions, Irradiation studies, Satellite facilities with limited washing capabilities, Work in biotech start-up companies with limited resources, to mention just a few.

Why use the Tecniplast Single Use Mouse Cage (SUMC)...

 

Animal Welfare and Ergonomics

  • ​As with all our caging the SUMC has been configured with the air inlet and outlet nozzles at the top of the cage to avoid air draughts and animal stress.
  • Designed in transparent A-PET plastic to provide great visibility during daily checks.
  • It is possible to stack 115 cage bases in 1 metre to save space. A great space saving for any facility.

The SUMC is ready for you to use...

  • The SUMC can be delivered to your facility complete with irradiated bedding and pre-filled water bottle.
  • The bedding is delivered in a paper tissue 'tea-bag' which is placed inside the cage (this has the added advantage for being built in paper enrichment!)
  • The bedding types available are Aspen or Corn Cob bedding.

The Single Use Mouse Cage provides your facility with the flexibility it needs!

 

​Alternatively, Tecniplast offer single use Cage Liners to fit inside existing IVC Green Line caging.
