No. 4170-003, -033 for Mice General These carefully engineered metabolic cages, manufactured by TECNIPLAST, are designed for simplicity of operation and total part interchangeability and feature a unique funnel/cone design which effectively separates faeces and urine and collects them into vials outside the cage. All components below the cage floor are removable without upsetting the test animal and thus preventing behavioural artifacts. Four models are available for either rats or mice; their dimensions comply with current USA animal welfare regulations. See Ordering Information for basic metabolic cages. The Tecniplast Metabolic Cages feature a unique funnel and cone design that effectively separates faeces and urine into tubes outside the cage. There's no urine washover and no potential for urine to enter the faeces tube, so separation is immediate and complete. The results are untainted and the samples reliable. The cage performs well with either mice (in group) or rats; a single mouse cage of new design is also available. Space saving and great visibility are facilitated by the 12-cage rack.
