This special automated cage construct separates, collects and quantifies urine and feces of mice or rats and thus provides important information about the animal’s energy balance. Dedicated urine and feces collection funnels direct urine and feces into standard lab tubes. Weighing sensors below the collection containers quantify urine and feces by amount and time. An optional high-speed freezing unit conserves the samples for later analysis.
