Enhanced Housing for Research Rodents
This light purple poster displays three white mice in a micro-isolator cage. The cage is equipped with a water bottle, food dispensing wire shelf and bedding material. The cage drawing is superimposed over a faded image of a cage rack holding many columns of similar cages. On the upper left hand quadrant of the cage there is a list entitled “Cage Comforts” describing the benefits provided by the cage. They are “Bedding, Food, Water, Enrichment, Containment, Filtered Air and Environmental Control”. The subtitle is, “A Program Sponsored by The NIH Animal Care and Use Committee, 496-5424.” The OACU and the NIH logos are also shown.
