Stand Alone research caging for your research laboratory needs
Rat Metabolism unit
Measurements and Materials and Functions:
Units consist of a 7x7x10" Stainless steel cage with a solid back and sides,the top is open. A center pitch metabolism pan slides on the bottom of the cage. Inside the pan there is a removable 10x10 stainless steel screen with an 18 gage "U" perimeter this keeps the feed from falling into the pan and mixing with the urine which is funneled into a receptacle under the pan. The cage is equipped with a combination feeder and bottle holder which hooks over the front of the cage. As the rodent eats and drinks from the feeder and bottle food crumbs or water fall into a small pan. The pan hooks over the front of the metabolism pan. This is called a food and water run-off pan; it keeps the urine specimen from being contaminated. A baffle at the front of the cage floor also helps the overflow of food and water fall into the run-off pan. The cage is supported by two flat bar leg frames that are attached to the sides of the cage. Each unit is equipped with a solid slide - on cover that has a 1/8" rod handle that locks the cover in place and allows the unit to be carried from one place to another. There is 2" stainless steel disc with a center hole for the drink tube to be inserted to into the cage front, the disc prevents the bottle stopperfrom being chewed on by the rodent.

Note: Rack can be constructed with cages back to back, to double the amount per unit. Back to back units would measure approximately 25 inches deep. Racks are constructed from 18 gage solid stainless steel shelves and 11 gage formed angle legs with 5 inch stainless steel casters.
Cages are fabricated from 24 gage stainless steel sheet to form the sides and back. The front and bottom is a 2x2x .062 stainless steel wire mesh (approximately 7/16" square openings) the cages are suspended by runners spot welded under the shelves. There is a small handle formed at the top of each cage to slide the cage in and out the rack. Each cage is equipped with a center pitch metabolism pan which slides over the cages bottom flange. The pan has a 10x10 stainless steel screen with a "U" frame around the perimeter; this keeps the feces separated from the urine which flows into a receptacle placed under each pan. There is also a food and water runoff pan that hooks over the front of the metabolism pan. Together the baffle and run-off pan keep the food and water from mixing with the urine specimen.
Each cage is equipped with a model RFC combination feeder and bottle holder which over the top of the cage and allows the rodent to eat though the mesh front.

The bottle is equipped with a rubber stopper and drink tube which extended into the cage front on each cage there is a stainless steel disc spot welded to the mesh which prevents the stopper from being chewed on. There is also a small card holder spot welded on to the feeder to display diet information.
