Metabolic Cage for Small Rodents

Meditech Technologies India Pvt. Ltd is the largest manufacturer and exporter of Metabolic Cage for Small Rodents.

For collection of feces & urine from experimental animal

There are many types of metabolic cages developed for metabolic studies of experimental animals. Most of them are constructed from plastic, 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 versatilit y, inadequate space for the animal and incomplete separation of urine and feces. Meditech Technologies has developed new type of metabolic cage RMC 03 which eliminates all these disadvantages. Meditech’s 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 diffuser guide. The diffuser 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 diffuser 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, accessto all elements below the cage floor without disturbing animal
  • Durability: Most components are made from autoclavable polycarbonate 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

Unique design of food hopper

New design of  Meditech’s Food hopper prevents animal to sleep or net inside same time reducing the food particle contamination in the urine or feces.
