Accommodating mice or rats, our Metabolic Cages offer 99% separation efficiency of urine and faeces, assuring maximum purity of samples. Each cage may be placed on a single cage stand or a stainless steel rack accommodating up to eight cages. Animal waste is directed through a collection funnel and onto a linear diffuser. The diffuser allows solid matter to travel down the top ridges of a 50% incline, passing over a urine port, and into a faecal collection vessel. Liquid waste flows along grooves down the inclined diffuser, passing through the urine port, and into a urine collection vessel. A urine deflector prevents excess urine from splashing and contaminating faecal specimen. Separate urine and faeces samples are collected in two standard 50 ml. centrifuge vessels.
The MouseOx Plus® is the second generation of the original mouse pulse oximeter and physiological monitor. It is clinically validated and has been used and cited in a multitude of published studies, including Lung Injury and Influenza Models. The MouseOx Plus® works on mice, rats and other small animals.
IPTT-300 Temperature Transponders
The IPTT-300 Programmable Temperature Transponder has in addition to the IPT-300, the ability to provide real time and accurate temperature monitoring. The incorporated temperature sensor measures and reports in increments of 0.1 °C. Standard calibrated temperture range is between 32°C – 43 °C.
