Need more cage space for your mice? No problem anymore with ACS

May 4, 2016

Mice are social animal living in kin groups in the wild and routinely seeking out social interactions. Laboratory mice a typically housed shoebox cages with up to 5 adult mice per cage. An alternative housing arrangement was recently developed  (BlockParty for Optimice, ACS) that connect up to 10 cages on the same raw of a ventilated rack, permitting up to 50 adult mice to be housed together, while the cage meets space recommendation in the Guide. This housing system was evaluated to compare how adult male and female CD-1 mice fared when housed for 4 weeks as either single sex groups of 5 or connected groups of 50.
