Metabolic Cage for Small Rodents

Here are many types of metabolic cages developed for metabolic studies of experimental animals. Most of them are constructed from pla stic, glass or a combination of plastic, glass, and metal screen with the primary function of urine-feces separation. Many of the cages available have several disadvantages as more number of parts, expensive construction, lack of versatility, inadequate space for the animal and incomplete separation of urine and feces.  Technologies has developed new type of metabolic cage RMC 03 which eliminates all these disadvantages.metabolic cage offer better separation efficiency of urine and feces assuring maximum purity of samples.

Components below the cage floor like collection tubes are removable without disturbing animals allowing tests to be conducted over a prolonged period of time without interruptions.

Animal waste is directed through a collection funnel and onto a linear diffuses guide. The diffuses guide allows solid matter to travel down the top ridges of a 50% incline, passing over a urine port, and into a fecal collection vessel. Liquid waste flows along grooves down the inclined diffuses guide, passing through the urine port, and into a urine collection vessel. A urine deflector prevents excess urine from splashing and contaminating fecal specimen. Separate urine and feces samples are collected in two separate tubes.


  • Reliable experiment results due to better separation efficiency
  • Food hopper design reducing the access or stay of animal inside food hopper
  • Practicality of use due to less components or parts
  • Minimal animal stress: Meets CPCSEA requirements, Sample removing is without stressing animal, access to all elements below the cage floor without disturbing animal
  • Durability: Most components are made from autoclavable poly-carbonate and S.S. 304 material
  • Versatility: Unit accommodates various species with simple feeder and floor change
  • Space saving
  • Economy: Few parts, simple and rapid assembling
