Optimice/Optirat GenII Black Bottle and Standard Cap

Giving Medicated Water To Your Rodents?

Many medications like antibiotics or other test compounds provided in drinking water for rodents are light-sensitive and may degrade in just a few hours in normal ambient light levels. Since most water bottles are clear, this means bottles have to be protected with wraps or other types of covers to preserve drug integrity. This light-protective water bottles safeguards your light-sensitive liquids.

Recommendations: Customers may purchase these bottles to protect light-sensitive compounds placed in the water from degrading or to have a strong visual (color) indicator to indicate the presence of water in cages (for example, weaning with water bottle supplementation during a transition to auto-water).
