Compact, Durable and Economical - CBC's Small Isolators are Ideal for Animal Quarantine!

With CBC's 36" or 30" flexible film quarantine isolators, researchers can avoid putting the health and well-being of their research animals in jeopardy. New introductions to the general research colony can be quarantined, tested and acclimated to minimize the possibility of introducing diseases into the general population.

Some studies recommend that even allegedly clean or SPF animals should be kept in quarantine until tested locally for pathogens before they or their offspring are introduced into the general population.

The CBC Difference

The CBC difference includes our original lap-seam sealing process and the use of 20 mil. polyurethane material that is almost indestructible and helps ensure against contamination due to accidental puncture or tear.

CBC uses a highly durable "lap seam" seal for the majority of our seams, and an even superior "cut/weld/strip seam" seal for high risk areas. Because your reputation, research or production should not risk being compromised!    (See, "Pull Test" and "Puncture Demonstration" videos below.)
