Why choose SychemCHANGE for your life sciences research facility?

SychemCHANGE is a dual access animal transfer station that provides ease and protection to animal technicians within the Life Science industry.

Cage change stations are the industry standard for performing minor procedures or cage changes. The stations are designed to protect animals from the external cage environment and users from allergens, dander and potential pathogens.

Sychem’s CHANGE station utilises Active Airflow Technology to create a fully functioning machine. This technology supplies an H14 HEPA filtered laminar downflow, which makes a clean work area. Utilising a user-friendly touch screen interface and ergonomic, electrically driven legs, the technician can easily raise or lower the working surface to their desired height.


What are the key features of SychemCHANGE?

Here are just a few reasons why you should choose our animal transfer station!

Active Airflow Technology

A filtered laminar airflow creates a downflow of H14 HEPA filtered air onto the work surface. ISO class 3 airflow ensures a barrier of protection between animal and operator, limiting the potential for cross-contamination and maximising staff safety.

TRESPA ® worksurface

Supplied as standard with a TRESPA® worksurface, SychemCHANGE provides a chemical and impact resistant worktop, whilst also offering users a quiet and nonreflective surface. As a fully reversible worksurface, SychemCHANGE can accommodate various cage sizes. Clients can order the worksurface either in a fixed raised or lowered position.

Red light mode

Red light mode changes the unit’s LED task lighting to red, and shifts the touch screen to a red and black graphical interface, preventing disruption to the animals sleep cycles.

Ergonomic excellence

SychemCHANGE offers the best height range on the market, making it suitable for any user. At the touch of a button, the height can electrically be seamlessly lowered or raised, maximising the user's comfort levels.

Intuitive user touch screen

The 7" colour touch screen boasts a user-friendly interface (UI) and universal icons, allowing the technicians quick access to controls at a glance—UI available in multiple languages.

SychemCHANGE has a large work area, ideal for various rodent cage sizes. The cage lid holder supplied as standard enables quick, aseptic cage changing. The station is perfect for complete, base-only cage changing and cleaning procedures.
