Small Animal Cage Changing

NuAire offers small animal cage changing stations and biosafety cabinets designed for the unique workflows of individual vivarium. Built-to-order, veterinary medical directors and facility operation managers may configure an animal transfer station or animal handling biosafety cabinet to secure and efficiently transfer laboratory rodents.

Safe and Effective Animal Transfers

Transferring research animals from one point to another while handling or changing cages can be a trying task -- maintaining sterility of the animal while preventing your own exposure to animal fur, dander, and used bedding materials is always a concern. This difficult feat has been greatly simplified by NuAire's AllerGard Animal Transfer Station and the LabGard Biological Safety Cabinet/Cage Changing Station.

When you need a portable space for handling and transferring animals, the AllerGard model NU-620 can't be beaten. Offered in three model sizes, the array of features of this re-engineered station make transferring animals nearly effortless. A hydraulic lift affords a 12" range of adjustment for improved comfort, while the 14" access opening height on all sides allows for more mobility within the workspace. The bright, clean fluorescent light enhances visibility.

On the more technical side, thanks to the 25 air changes per minute, this unit does not produce workspace heat build-up nor allow for the accumulation of animal hair, fur, or waste. An intake pre-filter removes the larger particulates coming into the unit from the room air, while the supply HEPA filter captures the tiniest of contaminants. A four-stage exhaust pre-filter draws in and cleans the air, then the Exhaust HEPA filter "scrubs" is free of contaminants and particulates before it is released back into the room. This prevents exposure to any animal shed allergens and keeps the animal in a virtually sterile environment. The NU-620 is offered as a dual-sided unit for user access from either side or configured as a single-sided unit using vacuum slots at the front of the unit that draws air at a high velocity, preventing contamination.

For more intensive use, NuAire LabGard Biological Safety Cabinet offers superior protection for personnel, equipment, and the environment, making sensitive animal handling and cage changing much less arduous. A large workspace provides plenty of room to perform tasks, while the Class II Type A2 Biohazard containment ensures the safety and the unidirectional laminar airflow minimizes cross-contamination between animals. Added security is put into place through negative pressure of plenums, gaskets, and ducts, preventing the possibility of the gasket and/or cabinet leaks and potential HEPA filter failure. Some of the other features include adjustable height, HEPA filter protection of incoming and outgoing air, with options such as ultraviolet light for added sanitation, dirty cage collection, refuse disposal, and sterile cage delivery.

You and your personnel will never look at animal handling and cage changing the same way after using the convenient, safe, fully mobile, and feature-loaded AllerGard Animal Transfer Station or LabGard Biological Safety Cabinets.

Vivarium

NuAire has a selection of products that can help make your lab safer, cleaner, and more effective while supporting the welfare of your animals. Our animal transfer stations use HEPA filtered airflow for product protection and allergen protection, and they create a vacuum air barrier between the user and the work zone in order to minimize the potential exposure to animal hair, dander or cage bedding material. You can also use NuAire's Bedding Disposal stations to safely and efficiently dispose of animal cage waste with no risk of exposure to odors, aerosols or lab animal dander. NuAire also has animal biosafety cabinets, procedural biosafety cabinets, isolation cabinets and laminar airflow workstations for use in animal labs.
