We have a variety of user manuals and handbooks which are available to download. Please select from the options below:

Isolator introduction

Are you new to this type of animal housing? Have you never worked on and with Isolators before? 
The most common applications are breeding of immune deficient animals, Quarantine, Infectious material and infection studies as well as gnotobiotic and germ free.

We offer a general introduction – User Handbook for basic care of Isolators – Procedures to plan the planning and initial procedures to the basic care of mouse colonies inside the Isolator and advise which type of procedures are used for the different applications.

Please let us know and we get in contact with you – initially over the phone and later in person with personal training. This service is always included when purchasing some of our Isolators.
 Available languages – English and German

Germfree

Specifically when working with Gnotobiotic and germ free animals, the procedures have to be perfectly planned, carefully executed and well thought out. The staff looking after the equipment and colonies are the success or the failure of the project itself. In order to give your staff the best possible start, we offer training to give important initial information, skills and guidance to achieve this.

Maintenance

The equipment used always needs to be looked after and maintained to give you reliable results and user performance.
We help you guide and advise which measured have to be taken to achieve this and train you to be able to perform small maintenance tasks yourself so you do not rely only on external technicians to keep your equipment working.
This will apply especially for:

Isolators (for positive- negative pressure applications)
Atomisers
General lab equipment
