45 % less footprint than other cage automation systems

According to the space available in the wash area and the number of cages to be processed per week, PEGASUS has two possible configurations to meet your needs and  in its compact version may occupy up to 45% less footprint than any other standard cage automation system. This means cost saving without compromising functionality since one single system covers all requirements: handling, dumping, loading, washing, drying and refilling.

Processes up to 600 cages per hour

Pegasus can effectively process up to 600 rodent cages per hour when fully integrated with an IWT tunnel washer, no-clog waste disposal system and an accurate bedding dispensing system. As to performance, IWT AUTOMATION equipment has been extensively validated in recent years and the data comes straight from the field - 97% UPTIME is guaranteed.

Effective reduction of allergen exposure

A study carried out in Europe (Sweden) focused on Airborne Rat Urinary Allergen (RUA) showed that the safe level of exposure or maximum exposure limit (MEL) for laboratory animal allergens is below 5ng/m3.

Handles all kinds of cages and accessories

Pegasus can handle cages from all manufacturers in the lab animal market, as well as allergen lids and trolleys. Filter tops, wire lids, bottles and miscellaneous items can also be processed in a universal crate.

Return On Investment in 5 - 7 years

Subject to minimum cage processing numbers, investment in this type of robotic system can be paid back in the medium term (4-6 years). The positive impact is felt in terms of reduced staff, compensation costs, personnel recruitment/training and absenteeism, as well as a reduction in spares and component stock levels and storage occupancy.
