MAB 31 Awake Animal System

These Awake Animal Systems are designed for flexibility. The Cage Adapter can be fixed to most cages and bowls used. The arm can be adjusted to the Cage Adapter in height. It is not necessary to fix the arm to the Cage Adapter but it can be left loose enabling the arm to also move in a sideways direction. A balance weight is adjusted so that the arm will follow the upward/downward movements of the animal.

The steel wire has a swivel brace that connects to the lower part of the swivel. In the other end is a locking device that will secure the wire to a plastic collar. This way it is possible to use one of the swivel channels for pushing perfusion media through the probe. The second channel connects to the probe outlet leading the sample to a sample collection device. It is common that the swivel channels have different dead volumes and it may be decided to connect the lowest volume channel to the probe outlet. There is no bowl/cage included in the MAB 31 systems. The reason being that it is common that users already have preferred bowls/cages in use.
