The Modular Animal Caging System (M.A.C.S.) ventilated caging system for rodents adapts to your animal room needs. With MACS, you can:
Increase Cage Density
The MACS frame holds the vertical cage stacks in place and also the air handling units. There are several framework styles that can be used on this system including the rotary, wall mount and mobile, both single-sided and double-sided. The frame is made from 1″ square stainless steel tubing. Each frame holds the main supply and exhaust plenums. Mobile frames have four autoclavable casters, two with locking brakes.
Change from a mouse IVC rack to a rat, large mouse or hamster IVC system without buying all new equipment! Another advantage of MACS is that it can change as your rodent research needs change. If you demand changes from mice to rats, with the MACS modular IVC you can quickly and easily change from mice to rats without having to purchase all new equipment. Several of the MACS frames have the ability to hold mice, rats or large mice cage stacks. You can intermix stacks on the same frame.
The laboratory animal research industry’s first rotary IVC that uses standard size cages! The MACS Rotary holds up to 120 Flex-Air mouse cages with a 76 square inch floor size. With a 58 inch turning diameter, this unit fits into tight spaces within animal rooms, increasing cages per square feet. This rotary unit holds 3 vertical cage stacks per side with auto watering options available. Available in your choice of 3 cage stack heights – 10, 9 or 8 high.
