Cage Enrichment

Cage enrichment at competitive prices

The importance of cage enrichment. The accommodation of laboratory animals used in the development and control of medicines or for basic research in universities, research centers, pharmaceuticals companies is standardized as much as possible. It should not affect the research results.

Enrichment of the environment

There are many legal requirements for the accommodation and care of these animals. For example, the cage must meet the physiological and psychological needs of the animals: as in the wild, they must behave normally so that they can survive and reproduce.

Portion Controlled Disposable Nesting & Enrichment

Thermoregulation is vital to laboratory mice and rats, which is why nesting material must be light, comfortable and warm. SheetNest is high-quality, dust-free nesting material that is suitable for all rodents.

This portion controlled nesting material has been designed to resemble natural nesting materials instinctively used by rodents in the wild. Light enough to drag to the right location, capable of trapping pockets of nice, warm air and is soft enough to provide comfort whilst being strong enough to hold its shape. The long strands encourage natural burrowing activity and help rodents build their preferred dome-shaped nest. Its high absorption capacity means bedding stays dry for added comfort and once soiled SheetNest is easy to dispose and replace.

  • 3000 sheets per box
  • Portion controlled
  • 3g. per sheet
  • Sheet size: 240x152mm
  • Aids thermoregulation
