All components below the cage floor are removable without upsetting the test animal and thus preventing behavioural artifacts.

Four models are available for either rats or mice; their dimensions comply with current USA animal welfare regulations.

The Tecniplast Metabolic Cages feature a unique funnel and cone design that effectively separates faeces and urine into tubes outside the cage.

There’s no urine washover and no potential for urine to enter the faeces tube, so separation is immediate and complete.

The results are untainted and reliable samples.
