  • This study compares resuable and disposable individually ventilated mouse cages in terms of the formation of intracage CO2 and NH3. Crl:CD-1(ICR) female mice were placed in either disposable or reusable ventilated cages in a positive pressure animal rack. Intracage CO2 and NH3 were measured once daily for 9 d; temperature and relative humidity were monitored for the first 7 d. Results indicated higher CO2 levels in the rear of the disposable cages and in the front of the reusable cages. This… CONTINUE READING
