Ensuring optimal bio-security, all EasyCage components are delivered double-bagged, irradiated, bedded if requested, and ready to use right out of the box.

NestPak®

NestPak® in the EasyCage offers a convenient way to deliver a consistent amount of irradiated bedding, with the added benefits of built-in enrichment and the elimination of messiness when unstacking pre-bedded cage bases. NestPaks® are self-contained bedding/nesting packets which utilize the animals' natural instincts to make nests and shred material. EasyCages can be delivered pre-bedded with NestPaks® (¼" ALPHA-dri® or ¼" corn cob), which allows the animals an enrichment activity while they bed the bottom of their cage.

EasyCage Water Bottle Process

The EasyCage water undergoes an extensive purification process comprised of the following steps: Filtration, Ion Exchange, UV Light Disinfection, Reverse Osmosis, Ozone Disinfection and Micron Filtration. EasyCage can be supplied with filled purified water, or empty bottles can be provided for facilities with their own water supply.

Easy-Pull Label

 
Prior to inserting Water Bottle into well,
remove sticker from cap by pulling straight up on the tab.
Place sticker on bottom of Water Bottle for visual confirmation
of removal, and that water is flowing to the animals.

EasyCage Automatic Watering

The EasyCage has an optional automatic watering capability when a stainless steel grommet is inserted into auto-watering capable cage bases. The stainless steel grommet interfaces with all major auto-watering providers' systems, and is reusable and autoclavable.
