For many years, lab research facilities have had problems thoroughly cleaning their sipper tubes. Improper cleaning left germs and pathogens in the tubes to be spread throughout the colony.
Most users simply pile all of their sipper tubes into a basket and run them through their tunnel or cage washer. This “static” washing method is ineffective because it is virtually impossible for any cleaners or disinfectants to actually enter the inside of the sipper tube. To effectively clean sipper tubes, the tubes need to be agitated, allowing the cleaners to penetrate the inside of the sipper tubes, and kill the pathogens.
The Britz Sipper Tube Tumbler is the first and only Sipper Tube Tumbler designed to use your existing washing equipment and independently agitate and thoroughly clean the sipper tubes. This saves you up to $15,000 over other independent washing systems.
To use, simply put the battery-operated Sipper Tube Tumbler on your tunnel wash belt or into your cage washer. Turn on the drive, and watch the tubes tumble! The Sipper Tube Tumbler will then run through a normal tunnel or cash wash cycle.
This one-of-a-kind Sipper Tube Tumbler is designed to help eliminate chronic germs and pathogens being left in the sipper tubes. Contact any of our Lab Animal Professionals to talk about how the Sipper Tube Tumbler can benefit your organization and your research animals
