Optimice Cage Wire Bar Perforated Floor
Wish You Had An Alternative To Traditional Wire Bar Tox Floors?
Many toxicology studies utilize non-solid floors since they facilitate controlled exposure to drugs and drug metabolites, eliminate bedding as an experimental variable and allow for more accurate feed consumption measurements. But many rodents show preferences for solid bottom bedded cages and certain designs of wire bar floors can predispose select animals to limb lesions and injuries, causing premature termination of a study or variable data.
Recommendations: For studies that have absolute requirements for fasting or total isolation of urine and feces from the animal, wire bar perforated floors can be used. For urine collection only, we recommend the Optimice Cage Stamped Perforated Floor Product # C40170.
