SCANTAINER-2 VENTILATED CABINETS FOR HOUSING OF RODENTS IN OPEN CAGES
ScanTainer-2 is a modular system consisting of 3 main modules
The European guidelines for accommodation and care for animals used for experimental and other scientific purposes, ETS 123 Appendix A, has formed the basis for the design of ScanTainer-2.
A ScanTainer simply supports a good micro climate:
For decades ScanTainer has been a trusted housing system at numerous facilities. ScanTainer-2 is a new generation enhancing flexibility, cleanability, adjustment of ventilation as well as logging of temperature and humidity.
The ventilation unit for ScanTainer-2 is fully compatible with previous generations of the ScanTainer and can be ordered separately for an easy upgrade.
A solid construction combined with efficient E11 filters and sealings prevent dust, pathogens or allergens from entering or escaping the ScanTainer, thus forming the basis for a best in class working environment.
At some facilities maintaining an accurate relative humidity can be a real challenge and reproducibility of research or breeding performance might be at stake. To solve this problem, a ScanClime air handling unit and a connection kit can substitute the ventilation unit. Thereby, very accurate humidification of air at an accuracy of ± 3% for any set-point between 45 to 65% relative humidity is guaranteed.
