The standard Tecniplast Transport Unit has been developed for labs and animal rooms where there is the need to house few animals flexibly without any extra effort than simply powering on the Unit to maintain the same ventilated conditions as any other Tecniplast standard IVC rack.
The DVC® Transport Unit represents the evolution of this product by adding the revolutionary DVC® technology to such equipment.
This solution perfectly suits experimental areas for running experiments on mice without sharing the entire Rack with other study groups and maintaining a higher level of control while collecting informative animal locomotion data automatically.
The DVC® Transport Unit can be equipped with a red chamber and a dedicated internal light control system. It becomes the perfect tool to detect mouse circadian activity alterations validated by the 24/7 monitoring feature employed by the DVC® technology without affecting the standard lab lighting regime.
Furthermore, when used in the DVC® Recovery Unit version, it ensures a controlled temperature and ventilation environment suitable for animals during post-surgical treatment as well as for many other applications. More in details, the DVC® Recovery Unit version is equipped with a plastic enclosure that provides excellent visibility and insulates the chamber thermally and acoustically.
The main benefits of the DVC® Transport/Recovery unit are:
