Highest Mouse IVC Cage Density in the Industry
The Optimice IVC rack system is based on our patented direct exhaust ventilation technology, free from motors, noise, and vibration. This original technology creates a low-stress, non-variable environment, ideal for housing and breeding research mice and delicate strains. Our carousel design features an exceptionally small footprint and ultra-high rodent cage density, the highest in the industry.
Animals are fully protected in Optimice cages, and odors and allergens are contained. This most unique mouse rack is trusted by scientists, veterinarians, managers, and technicians worldwide for its proven ability to optimize research while protecting caretakers and providing an ideal microenvironment for the mice.
Our Largest, Multi-Level Rack System for Rats
Optirat Plus IVC rack system provides multi-level housing for rats and other large rodents. This spacious rodent cage allows the housing of larger groups and fewer single animals. The wide interior enables additional intra-cage enrichment like shelters and allows rats to express natural behaviors, as well as to stand upright, enhancing well-being. The mezzanine increases floor space and adds complexity to the cage environment.
Optirat Plus combines our proven motor-free, exhaust-ventilated technology and high-density carousel design with improved ease of use and maintenance. The feeder is located near the rear of the cage for improved visibility of animals, and the water bottles are externally located to allow changing without opening cages.
