The system

Triple A Trading can offer you this innovative concept.

Because of the direct air exhaust concept it is absolutely unique and offers you many advantages.


Advantages for the Animal Technicians:

Work in an allergen free environment .

Absolutely odour free.

Less dust so less cleaning.

Almost no radiation of heat (only 50 BTU), so less AC cooling required.

Carrousel can spin so you can bring the cage to you.


Advantages for the animals:

Lower NH3 level.

Easy and permanent in flow of clean air.

Lower change on dehydration of the animals.

Direct exhaust of dirty air.

No disturbing vibrations.

No disturbing ultrasound.

Cage enrichment already on board because of the design of the cages.

Water from leaky nipples flows away trough the low placed front filter.


Advantages for the management of the animal facility:

Work in an allergen free environment .

Absolutely odour free.

No cross contamination because of individual air intake and exhaust.

Less labour because of less cleaning on the installation.

Almost no radiation of heat (only 50 BTU), so less AC cooling required.


Advantages for the Maintenance Technicians:

Less maintenance, no engines for ventilation.

Work in an allergen free environment.

Absolutely odour free.


Budget advantages:

No use of electrical power.

Almost twice the density of animals per square meter.

If a higher capacity is required it is not always necessary to build a new facility.

In case of a new build construction it can be smaller, so more economical.

Less cooling necessary in the animal facility because of a lower heat production.

n general with our cageTower systems we can offer a double housing capacity on the same surface.

On your request our designers can deliver a rough sketch of the positioning of the tower systems.

Example: for a already existing space where in you want maximum capacity with our cageTowers systems, we can deliver

the design sketches.

Example: u have calculated your needs, we deliver the design sketches to you.


Advantages for the researchers:

Cleaner air in the animal laboratory.

No cross contamination because of individual air intake and exhaust.

More capacity per room, all the animals from one study in one room.


OptiMICE

100 cages on only one square metre.

Each tower is easy to move on it’s wheels. but the carrousel itself can spin very easy. By spinning the carrousel the animals are not disturbed.

Animal Technicians can stay for a much longer period at one place in the odour- and allergen free space because they simply spin the carrousel and they “bring the cage to themselves.”

Filters in the individual cages do not have to be removed before cage washing, they are washed and so cleaned together with the cage.

Filters have a shelf life of three years and can easily be removed by pushing them out by hand, no special tools required.

All components are autoclavable.

Carrousel can easily be disconnected and be autoclaved.

Automatic watering system is an option.

Original M.I.C.E. system

Instead of a carrousel a rack system. This system works according the same direct connection and exhaust principe as the carrousels. Again an allergen- and odour free working space. The main difference is that the cages are in a rack and not in a revolving carrousel. Also this system has a high cage density. The whole rack is on wheels and can be disconnected and removed easily. These systems are available in a wide variety of sizes, from the smallest 14-cage system ideal for small studies and experiments, to large 140-cage racks suitable for installation in medium-to-large animal rooms. Filters in the individual cages do not have to be removed before cage washing, they are washed and so cleaned together with the cage. Filters have a shelf life of three years and can easily be removed by pushing them out by hand, no special tools required. All components are autoclavable. Automatic watering system is an option.


Floor space of the standard cage is: 535 cm2. Suitable for 5 to 6 mice per cage, depending on the body weight.

Floor space of the “double wide” cage is 1161 cm2. Suitable for 3 rats per cage, depending on the body weight.

External water bottles of 400 ml or 600 ml.
