Product Description


Research has shown that picking up mice by the tail induces aversion and high anxiety and generally should be avoided. Datesand have developed reusable 3mm fit for purpose clip-on Clear Handling Tubes. They can be clipped onto cage bars, providing enrichment for mice as well as being an extremely useful tool for technicians.


We offer 3 different sized Clear Handling Tubes depending on your needs, including these 110mm clip-on tubes and regular 100mm and 130mm tubes.


Although handling tunnels do not have to be present in the home cage to be effective, having a handling tunnel in the home cage increases recognition of a familiar safe site as well as providing cage enrichment. – (  The elevated handling tube will minimise the risk of accidental cage flooding.
