CageTalkers®

Use CageTalkers® in place of a paper-based cage card, and eliminate paper cards and printers from your vivarium. This unique technology allows you to track and locate every cage in your facility and perform cage census without entering every room to scan individual barcodes. CageTalkers® integrates with your existing facility software, and all cage card information is permanently archived. You’ll never lose valuable information from a lost paper cage card again!

CageTalkers® provides two main functions: electronic cage card function and census and location services. They clip securely to the front of any style of cage and have an easy-to-read display. The information your existing animal management software sends to a physical printer is now sent to CageTalkers®. You decide how much and the type of information you want on this electronic cage card.

Room transceivers communicate to a central hub that is connected to the facility’s server. Using infrared technology, each room’s transceiver picks up cages only in that room. This unique application distinguishes CageTalkers® from RFID products. Each CageTalkers® card transmits a signal with a unique identifier that allows each cage to be located, counted, and identified, providing accurate census of cages with the click of a button from your electronic device. Locate misplaced cages by using each room’s transceiver, which will identify a cage that doesn’t belong in a specific room.
