Ergo80 Rack

Ergo80 Rack for water bottles or water bags complete with one 6-foot hose, cages not included

The Ergo80 provides a compact and ergonomic IVC rack system with all the features and benefits of our Optimice IVC system. Ergomice is a lightweight, lower-cost alternative to the Optimice rodent rack.

Recommendations: The Ergo80 IVC Rack assembly rack has a 80 cage capacity. Typically customers will order 130 cages in order to have enough cages available for cage change out. We also recommend purchasing our Blockparty enrichment cages C79110PBPDF and connecting tubes C79BP050 for some or all of the cages to provide enrichment by increasing cage complexity and living space.
