ALN - Alesco Negative Rack
The ALN line was developed in order to unite security and protection with practicality and flexibility, providing high biocontention to the user.
The ALN Rack has air circulation and controlled negative pressure in all the mini-isolators in it coupled. It should be noted that passive air insufflation and active and controlled exhaustion have HEPA filters for total system protection.
ALN IVC Rack for Mice
The IVC Racks are one of the most modern and best-selling equipment in the world for animal maintenance. They are very robust, working well in different environmental conditions (high durability).
The intra-cage ventilation system (IVC), present in IVC Racks, is the most efficient because the air inflated inside the mini isolators, dragging efficiently the main toxic gases (ammonia and CO2) and humidity (limiting factor for the growth of urease positive bacteria) to outside this micro-environment.
Because they generate more protection to the animals, thus preventing cross-contamination (spread) and the allergen dispersion. They also provide greater blockage of macro and micro-environmental noises and odors, preventing and / or reducing the stress ratio. Another important factor to consider is the efficient system of air exchanges (insufflation and exhaustion) of the mini isolators, efficiently removing the main systemic toxic gases (ammonia and CO2), besides the excessive moisture responsible for the growth of urease positive bacteria (which transform urea into ammonia).
Main advantages and characteristics
- Optimization of physical spaces;
- Rooms without odors, contaminants and allergens;
