Optimice Single-Use Cage Docking Tray

Optimice Single Use Cage Docking Tray, 102 per box

This Singe-use Docking Tray is compatible with the Optimice Single-Use Cage Bottom and other Optimice Single-Use components. The Docking Tray is fitted to the individual cage stations in either the Optimice, Ergomice or SMART IVC rack, which allows the Optimice Single-Use Cage Bottom to fit securely into the cage station. The Docking Trays can be used for long periods of time.

Recommendations: Single-Use caging is especially useful for reduction of exposure to biohazard, radioactive or toxic substances, as the entire cage can be disposed of as a package, rather than having to decontaminate by other means (which typically mean the cage has to be opened prior to decontamination or neutralization). In addition, decontamination of permanent cages often leads to an accelerated breakdown of the cage plastic, which can lead to an increased need for replacement of permanent cages. It is also useful to keep a supply of single-use caging available for crisis management, such as cage washing equipment breakdown.
