Poultry Isolators

Designed to protect both your fowl, and your personnel.

PIU_36_main4.jpg The Plas-Labs’ goal pertaining to H.E.P.A. filtration of its chambers is to ensure absolute filtration, yet make filter change-over simple and quick. Both the H.E.P.A. filter and blue pre-filters can be changed in seconds.

These poultry isolation units are designed to protect both your fowl and personnel from cross contamination. They are ideal for either acute or chronic studies. The isolation cubicles are match die-molded of “hi-tech” thermoplastic allowing for autoclaving or steam sterilization. The problem of hypothermia is eliminated. Individual cubicles can be removed for cleaning, but it is not normally necessary. The polycarbonate doors are mounted using stainless steel “slip-a-part” hinges for easier cleaning.
