Coming Soon – Mouse Retreats – This is a newly designed shelter for mice that looks like a square tunnel and has bowed walls so that they do not stick together after cleaning and mouse urine rolls off.  They are used as a shelter in the home cage and as a tool to transfer mice from one cage to another.  Mouse tunnels can also be used as a shelter or to transfer mice and are also very popular, but the Mouse Retreat design is what all the recent publications used to validate that this type of handling is far less stressful than traditionally picking mice up by the tail during cage changing.   Expected to be in stock end of December 2022.

  • Made of high temp polycarbonate
  • Validated in studies for low stress mouse handling
  • Provides sheltering opportunities
  • Slightly bowed design facilitates easy cleaning
  • Does not roll about cage
