Animal Care

Animal Containment Workstations

In a biomedical facility, animal husbandry is of the utmost importance. Facilities must follow the strict home office guidelines and respect the principles of the 3R’s (Replacement, Reduction, and Refinement).

In place of this, a wide variety of equipment is available to improve and support the animal technicians in exceeding all applicable home office guidelines, and AALAC requirements to promote the health and wellbeing of the animals and staff.

At Sychem, we provide a comprehensive range of animal contain workstations, services, and consumables to support & assist research facilities in providing the best conditions for the animals within their care. Whether it be for cage & bottle washing solutions, autoclaves, clean or dirty bedding handling, or even market-leading chemistries to maintain a bio-security level Sychem has the answer.
