Metabolic cages are specialized housing units for small animals, such as rodents, that are used in scientific research. They are designed to allow researchers to closely monitor and measure the metabolic rate, food and water intake, and other physiological parameters of the animals. The cages are often used to study the effects of various factors, such as diet, drugs, and environmental conditions, on the metabolism and behavior of the animals. By providing a controlled environment and precise measurement tools, metabolic cages enable researchers to conduct highly controlled and accurate experiments.
Our mobile, stainless steel rack can accommodate up to four, eight, or ten metabolic cages per rack.
The two-tier construction ergonomically positions metabolic cages at convenient height levels for easy observations and routine maintenance
