Transtainer Mouse Shipper

Presenting the Transtainer Mouse Shipper. The system includes a reusable cardboard box with interior bays for individual shipping tubes. The ends of each tube are fitted with autoclaved filtered ends. Everything in the design makes sure that breathability is paramount right down to built in tabs so that the breather holes can’t be blocked by adjoining boxes.




Wouldn’t it be nice if shipping containers were:
. . . divided into sealed compartments so that species and sexes couldn’t intermingle?
. . . easy to remove animals avoiding bites and scratches?
. . . designed to avoid stress and injury to the animal?
. . . had lots of view ports and air holes to avoid unnecessary opening?
. . . came sterile or on site autoclavable and could be directly filled in a barrier?
. . . could be easily unpacked (no handling) with mice sliding right into their permanent cages?

We thought so too; so we did it! and also added: 100% recyclable!
