DVC® – Digital Ventilated Cage for digital vivarium
You are already familiar with IVCs, the core element of animal housing in your facility.
Now it’s time to discover the revolutionary DVC®, to make your IVCs SMART like never before!
Animals spend roughly 99% of the day in their home cage without being observed. Thanks to DVC® you will 24/7 capture and record data about conditions, events and activity inside each cage without disturbing or altering the animals normal cage behaviors.
DVC® Analytics is the scientific cloud-based portal developed by Tecniplast in order to access and analyze DVC® board raw data generated by the DVC® system installed in the Vivarium, transforming them into valuable animal activity information for your study..
Famous worldwide Tecniplast ISOCAGE N and ISOCAGE P systems for biocontainment and bioexclusion respectively are now potentially even boosted by the DVC® capabilities to provide novel insights and enhance animal welfare checks thanks to the automatic data collection directly from the cage level. Specifically designed DVC® board can be easily retrofitted to already existing ISOCAGE P/N systems and enable different benefits for the researchers and vivarium people. .
DVC® Transport Unit
