Optimice/Optirat GenII Red Water Bottle, no cap

Need to Differentiate One Water Bottle From Another?

How often have you picked cage card flags off the ground and tried to figure out which cage they came from? In the vivarium, flags of various colors are often used to in the cage card holder to alert workers as to whether mice are pregnant, recently weaned, need a special check etc. The different categories are endless – as are the flags. Often cage card holders are overstuffed and some flags can be missed.

Recommendations: The red bottle can provide a robust way to identify cages that need special attention (for example, weaning with water bottle supplementation during a transition to autowater. If you already have a large number of Optimice/Optirat GenII standard water bottles, you have a large supply of caps, and can therefore purchase a bottle only, and use your existing caps.  Purchase one bottle per Optimice cage and two bottles per Optirat GenII cage.
