Scantainer Classic (ASTZ-11E)

The Scantainer concept was developed in response to the increasing need for protection of animals as well as personnel. This need has increased further as a result of the growing use of immunodeficient and transgenic animals and also as a result of the efforts to implement GLP. In addition allergy to laboratory animals (LAA) has been recognised as a serious occupational health hazard. 


A selection of animals to be protected in the Scantainer:

• Animals in long term studies

• Transgenic animals

• SCID-mice

• Nude mice and rats

• Valuable inbred strains

• High quality SPF animals


Other common applications of the Scantainer:

• Standardisation of experiments

• Quarantine of animals

• Transportation of animals

• Separation of animals in GLP studies

• Acclimatisation of animals

• Reversing light cycles

• As a Multi-Purpose Isolation Chamber
