Getinge, in partnership with Detach AB, offers a complete solution for cage processing in bio-medical research, combining Detach AB's automated systems technology with Getinge's cleaning and decontamination systems.

The collaboration deals with a very specific part of biomedical research: emptying, decontamination / cleaning and refilling of cages. Cages must be cleaned regularly, a task that used to be carried out manually, thereby exposing staff to contaminants, allergens and possible infections in the cage bedding material. Detach was first – in 1996 – to introduce a fully automatic system for cage and bedding management. One or more industrial robots empty the cages and place them in a washer. After cleaning and decontamination, the robots refill the cages with bedding and place them in the designated location for collection. This type of automated system reduces staff exposure to allergens by 99%. The collaboration aims to provide safe, ergonomic and efficient systems for your animal care facility or vivarium.
