Animal Cage Changing Station
Animal cage changing and bedding disposal procedures are now simple and safe with the Orchid’s range of Animal Containment Workstations like Animal Cage Changing Station and Animal Bedding Disposal Unit.
Orchid’s Animal Cage Change Station gives the best allergen, microbial, and product protection, at lowest energy consumption and noise, while giving the ultimate user comfort. Orchid’s cage changing station has upstream and downstream dual air flow system which prevents hazardous allergens from escaping the work zone and external contaminated air from entering the work zone.
An animal cage change station is a clean bench designed specifically for procedures that could stir up allergens, such as animal cage changing. As room air is pulled in through the grills at the top side of cabinet, it passes through two filters – a pre-filter that captures large particles and then through a HEPA filter. The velocity with which HEPA filtered air travels from upside to downside on the workstation is measured and controlled through PLC. Similarly, the air above work surface is pulled through the grills on the work surface and then filtered through pre-filter and HEPA filter and then released in to the atmosphere. Air velocities in the range of 0.4 to 0.8m/s at both, upstream and downstream HEPA filters are controlled through PLC & monitored on touch screen display. Further, upper and lower limits for these velocities can be set so that if air velocity at any of the two positions is out of range then error signal in the form of indicator is shown.
Orchid’s Animal Cage Changing Station comes in variety of sizes and different optional features like Acrylic transparent shield.
