Reusable Plastic Animal Cage System - 2154F

This durable Reusable Plastic Animal Cage System – 2154F is made of polycarbonate material, has a floor area of 145.7 in2, and was designed for rat/hamsters.

Complete cage set-up requires reusable filter covers and stainless-steel wire lids – please order separately (all three items below)

Cage bodies are designed to facilitate animal welfare, meet research requirements, and minimize experimental variables. These Polycarbonate (PC) bodies are transparent plastic with exceptional impact strength and heat resistance. They can be autoclaved at 121°C.

Wire Cage Lids are secure and easy to handle. The autoclavable stainless steel wire cages have cross-wires to prevent bending. Lids include a stopper guard for water bottle sipper tube and a U-shaped hopper for easy access to food. This hopper won’t entrap food or contaminants and includes a central divider to prevent the animal from crawling into the feeder. The hopper divider also folds down for easy storage.

Filter Covers securely fit these plastic animal cages and are sturdy and reusable. Filter covers permit atmospheric gas passage with minimal buildup of temperature and humidity. These covers are constructed of transparent polysulfone with a stainless steel filter retainer.
