Bedding Material for Laboratory Animal Keepings

Data specification of bedding material

There are several special and essential requirements while using bedding material in laboratory animal keepings. These requirements cannot be fullfilled using "normal" products. Continuously monitored products, complete batch traceability and a selective range of raw materials play a decisive role. Cost-efficient, dust deficient, autoclavale - these are only a few facts which must be conformed.
