MACS Gentle-Air Vertical Mouse Cage Stack Composite Bracket

Description

The heart of the Modular Animal Caging System (M.A.C.S.) is the universal vertical plenum or cage stack. Standard mouse cage stacks hold up to 10 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 18 lbs without the cages on it. Ends are open for easy cleaning. The stack body is made of extruded aluminum with brackets molded from composite resin for durability. The stack is autoclavable.

All of our cage stacks are the same height which makes them interchangeable on many of the M.A.C.S. frames or racks. 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 Gentle-Air Vertical Mouse Cage Composite Bracket Stack holds up to 10 standard size mouse cages with either a 65 square inch floor or 75 square inch floor. Cage types that fit on this bracket include the Max 75, Dura Cage or Uni Cage.

Composite brackets lessen cage stack weight. High visibility yellow cage latches make it very easy to confirm from across the room which cages are properly docked. This saves valuable inspection time for the technician. Available in your choice of 3 sizes – 10 high, 9 high or 8 high brackets.
