DVC - Digital Ventilated Cage for digital vivarium

By using digital technology, DVC® - Tecniplast Digital Ventilated Cage  transforms your Facility in a real digital vivarium bringing standardization in housing, animal welfare, vivarium management and research.7 digital modules 24/7 capture and record data about housing conditions, events and activity inside all the DVC cages of your digital vivarium, without disturbing or affecting the animals:

  • BEDDING CONDITION – detects changes in moisture within the bedding
  • FOOD & WATER – an infra-red system is embedded in the runners to detect food and water levels, or to check if a bottle is set up properly
  • ANIMAL ACTIVITY – by means of a sensor plate, the system’s software captures digital data to detect daily anomaly animal activity patterns
  • LEAK DETECTION– detects water leakage inside the cage and sends an automatic alarm to operators for immediate action
  • DVC FACILITY PLANNER – to improve vivarium daily workflow, task assignment and utilization of resources
  • CAGE IDENTIFICATION – to easily identify cages in your vivarium that need special attention or follow up
  • INVENTORY – detects cage occupancy, locates all the DVC vivarium cages in real-time and provides automatic billing
