The lightest, most cost-effective, easiest-to-use animal-friendly IVC system in the LAS industry, now providing up to 20% more cage capacity in the same rack footprint.
With the cost of floor space increasing with each passing year, every research facility in the Lab Animal Science industry understands the need to maximize cage density within their vivarium. Enter NexGen MAX, the new Maximum Density IVC and Cage System from Allentown that increases cage density by 20% - using IVCs that are the same size and occupy the same footprint as our standard units. Available with automatic watering or with optional bottle, MAX IVCs accommodate both the NexGen MAX reusable cage system AND the EasyCage MAX disposable cage system. One rack, two cage types, many, many more cages. Just what you'd expect from Allentown, your Global Solutions Provider.
Smooth and easy sliding in, and the same sliding out...less stress and vibration for your animals and less repetitive motion strain on your staff... those are the benefits of NexGen's innovative plastic runner system. So innovative that the NexGen is changing the way animal care staff perform their wellness checks...no need to fully remove cages from the rack.
There's so little you'll hear when using a NexGen that it's easier to describe what you won't: no loud hum, no swirling fan, no air noise as it gets sucked into the blower intake... just quiet. Energy efficient ECM motors along with design expertise applied by Allentown airflow experts ensures you'll barely even notice that the blowers are on.
Lighter, easier to use, easier to move and manipulate, validated by an independent ergonomist. NexGen provides reliable protection for your staff and your animals. Reengineered to be stronger yet lighter, the NexGen uses less stainless steel and a combination of high-quality plastic materials to make the rack easier to work with.

Allentown and Charles River Laboratories have partnered together to develop the Exhaust Air Dust collection methodology — or EAD®. Available in two configurations, neither system requires the use of soiled-bedding sentinel animals, but instead captures and samples aggregate exhaust air from IVCs using a patented collection media that attracts dust particles but doesn't load like a filter, or impact airflow.
The EcoFlo family of blowers are the most energy efficient, ergonomically friendly, and quietest blowers we've ever produced. Offered in a wide variety of solution friendly configurations - including rack mounted, wall mounted, ceiling mounted and free-standing tower - these blowers share the same efficiencies, ease of use, superior control, and dependability that are the hallmarks of all Allentown products.
