The EMERAT ER1800 is the new IVC for rats, the new arrival in Emerald Family. Thanks to some successful innovations, it is able to guarantee four main advantages that make this cage unique:
The EMERAT’s SmarTop represents the best ergonomic solution for operators which satisfies the highest requirements for standardisation and biosecurity. The SmarTop assists in the aseptic practices: with a simple motion of lifting the lid, it is possible to perform standardised procedures during the cage change with any potential cross-contamination minimised.
Moreover, thanks to its lightness and the presence of moulded cage runners with built-in handles, EMERAT ER1800 allows greater ergonomics when transferring the cage on and off the rack.
The new design makes EMERAT ER1800 not only a simple cage but a real rat suite. The absence of a stainless steel lid and the dual use of the feeder, which also works as a mezzanine thanks to the solid lid, provide to animals an enriched and fully accessible internal environment. In this way, they are free to express natural behaviour patterns whilst promoting positive behavioural traits, such as exploration and bi-pedal posture.
The latch-free innovative design guarantees unrivalled visibility, providing a clear, unrestricted view allowing daily health and welfare checks to be carried out easily. The Tecniplast PATENTED cage sealing design combined with the in-bedded locking system guarantees the optimal protection for both animals and operators.
EMERAT ER1800 is a versatile system with two great IVC rack styles to meet every facilities requirements. The ERGO Racks allow operators to easily access all cages in any position comfortably. But, if the space is a premium, the HD Racks are the ideal solution to increase the cage density and save space in the vivarium.
EMERAT ER1800 represents the ideal solution to offer operator comfort and animal welfare in a single cage, now hand in hand:
