Innovive Disposable Caging System Improves Animal Welfare
The Innovive Disposable IVC Rodent Caging System provides the best cage level environment for your animals. Studies show the Innovive system yields high precision-controlled airflow, low acoustic levels, low ammonia levels, and a better breeding environment for your animals than the traditional system.

Low Acoustic Levels

Third-party testing shows that the Innorack® IVC system yields low acoustic noise levels and has no impact on the well-being of animals inside the cages.

% Pregnant = number of breeding pairs to become pregnant.
% Good Mothers = number of breeding pairs to become pregnant AND successfully raise all pups to maturity.

BPA-Free Cages

BPA (Bisphenol A) is a difunctional building block of several important plastics and plastic additives that has shown to have harmful effects on laboratory animals. BPA is found in nearly all traditional washable rodent caging solutions, since it allows cages to withstand high-temperature wash and sterilization.

Innovive disposable cages, on the other hand, are BPA-free and made of 100% PET plastic.
