Rodent Metabolism Cages
Our rodent metabolism caging has been developed over the years to be simple to use whilst still providing quality samples. To achieve this the caging is structurally formatted to give excellent separation between urine and faeces. Additionally, the electropolished stainless steel construction ensures good sample recovery. To prevent sample contamination, food hoppers and bottle holders are designed to stop spillage into the cage.
The racking is constructed of lightweight stainless steel tubing and is available as either a single or double sided unit to meet individual requirements. All units are mounted on autoclavable castors as standard.Options include urine separators, which are spouted for easy pouring and can be graduated for accurate measurement of samples. These are retained by a magnetic ring to ease sample collection.
