Animal Care Systems Optirat GenII Rack

Ideal housing and superior air quality, the Optirat GenII IVC rack system is built on the same structural frame as Optimice and employs the same motor-free, exhaust-ventilated technology as all Animal Care Systems caging systems.

This rodent cage is large enough to accommodate rats comfortably and provides superior visibility, thanks to the wide front face. Like our other carousel-style racks, this rack system for rats and other small rodents can be positioned against a wall or next to another rack. The rotating carousel provides easy cage access without moving racks or forming large aisles. Rotate the carousel to bring the cages to you.
