ALPHA-Nest®

Introducing a Better, Cleaner, Nesting Enrichment Additive

Enhanced environmental enrichment - ALPHA-Nest appeals to rodents' natural behavior of nest building. Its long cotton fibers allow for easy shredding and manipulation. While possessing the same mass as other nesting products, the dense ALPHA-Nest sheets require more time to shred and manipulate. This enhances the enrichment value for the animal.

Unparalleled cleanliness - ALPHA-Nest is much cleaner than its competitors. ALPHA-Nest is manufactured from 100% bleached cotton staple fibers to exacting standards, while other nesting products are made from unbleached cotton fibers. Please refer to the technical specifications for composition and contaminant information.

Labor savings - Fewer repetitive motion injuries. Unlike other products, ALPHA-Nest is fully pre-cut for easy dispensing. And because the ALPHA-Nest sheets are less than 1/16" thick, technicians can fit them in cages with wire lids in place. This results in significant time savings.

Low dust levels - Extremely long, 100% cotton staple fibers eliminate the potential for airborne dust after shredding.

Availability - ALPHA-Nest is available in 3" x 3" squares. They are packaged in sealed plastic bags within 2,000-count cartons.

• Autoclavable - ALPHA-Nest is easily autoclaved. It is also available irradiated.

• Reduced storage - The small size of the ALPHA-Nest sheets results in more
available storage space.

• Helps with Grinding Problems - ALPHA-Nest's hard nature provides rodents with food grinding problems, an alternative point of focus and a material to chew rather than wasting your feed.

Eliminates Limb Entanglement - Cotton threads commonly found in competing cotton nesting additives, have been shown to cause limb entanglement problems with pups. There are not any threads in ALPHA-Nest to cause this problem.
