Safety for animals, personnel and environment

The basic aim of the Scantainer concept is to reduce the time of exposure to microorganisms, dust, allergens and other contaminants for animals as well as for personnel. As long as the Scantainer is closed this exposure is eliminated as all supply and exhaust air is filtered through the highly efficient filters.

The Scantainer not only shortens the time of exposure, it also minimizes the contamination level in the room air as this is continuously decontaminated by the Scantainer-filters. As a result, the risk of infection of the animals inside the cabinet when the doors are opened is reduced. This risk can be eliminated by transferring the cages to a ScanFlowECO (LAF) cabin for handling procedures.


Scantainers are available in 4 standard sizes designed to accommodate the commonly used European Standard small rodent cages type I - IV. Special sizes are supplied on request.


In order to change and reverse day and night cycle for your animals your Scantainer can be supplied with a light adjustment kit or it can be retrofitted on your existing Scantainer cabinet.

Furthermore we recommend that you control the relative humidity and air changes in your Scantainer - and for that purpose we have developed the ScanClime Humidity Control which can be connected to your Scantainer.
