MACS Vertical Large Mouse Cage Stack

Description

The heart of the Modular Animal Caging System (M.A.C.S.) is the universal vertical plenum or cage stack. Standard large mouse cage stacks hold 7 cages vertically. Each cage stack has a supply plenum side and an exhaust plenum. There is space for an automated water system if you choose that option. The cage brackets are attached to the vertical stack and fold up for easy moving and storage. An individual cage stack weighs only 21 lbs without the cages on it. Ends are open for easy cleaning. The stack body is made of 22 gauge stainless steel with 16 gauge brackets for durability. The stack is autoclavable.

The standard large mouse and standard mouse cage stacks are both the same height making them interchangeable on several M.A.C.S. frames. You can go from large mouse cages to mouse cages and back as you may need based on cages using water bottles. This allows you to easily and quickly change cages as your rodent research model needs change without buying all new equipment – reducing your capital equipment costs.

The MACS Vertical Large Mouse Cage Stack holds up to 7 of the standard shaped rat cages, about 147 square inch floor. Available in your choice of 2 sizes – 7 high or 6 high brackets.
