The Animal Cages can be mainly classified into different types. Open Type Cages, Filter Top Cages and Ventilated Cages. The difference among three, is briefly explained below.

Open Type Caging System

Open cages are most simple in design. The cage consists of a cage box in plastic or metallic construction and a grill on top. The grill is partially depressed to facilitate the storage of animal food and to house the water bottle. The cages are house in the racks installed in clean rooms. The air circulation within the cage takes place by the natural current of air through the grill. The room is generally provided with a good amount of “once through” air to evacuate the contaminated air. The clean supply air protects the animals from the environment contamination but there is hardly any protection from the cross contamination from surrounding animal or care taking personnel.

Filter Top Caging System

Filter Top Cage consists of a cage box, depressed grill and a wire or plastic structure on the top of cage with filter element. Similar to open cages, these cages are also housed in the standard racks installed in clean rooms. The filter top protects the animals from environment contamination and also eliminates the spreading of infection from the cage to surrounding environment. Because of high resistance of filters, the air circulation in cage is comparatively lower, causing higher level of Ammonia and CO2within the cage.

Ventilated Caging System

Ventilated Caging System

This type of caging system provides complete protection to animals without having the drawbacks of other two caging systems. Ventilated Caging System consists of following:

  1. The transparent cage with depressed wire grill, a lid with gasket, self – closing type supply and exhaust port.
  2. A dedicated air handling system called I.V.C. Ventilator

The lid with self closing ports provides isolation to the animal and also eliminates the spreading of contaminated air from cage to surrounding environment.

The I.V.C. ventilator provides required amount of clean air to each cage. It also extracts contamination air from cages and exhausts it out of the room after passing through filters. Forced ventilation with good air change rate keeps the cage drier maintaining low level of ammonia and CO2
