Optimice Rack, Cage-Mounted Avidity/Edstrom Valves

Highest Mouse IVC Cage Density in the Industry

Optimice Rack, Cage-Mounted Avidity/Edstrom Valves complete with two 6-foot hoses, cages not included

Recommendations: The Optimice IVC rack comes complete with an internal watering system and is compatible with Optimice Auto-Water Cage Bottom with Avidity/Edstrom cage-mounted valves C79112PFEV. The rack has a 100 cage capacity. Typically customers will order 140 cages in order to have enough cages available for cage change out. Some Optimice/Optirat GenII Standard Bottle and Cap C79122P should be ordered if water bottle usage is also planned for some or all of the cages. 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.
