New to the Allentown product line, Allentown Sterilization Bags offer research facilities a convenient, safe and easy-to-use solution for sterilizing cages, including safeguards to reduce the margin of error and minimize mishandling. Dry-heat compatible.
Made in the USA

How To Use

Step 1

Place a stack of cages inside the bag, leaving at least 2 in / 5 cm between the top of the last cage and the location where the bag will be cinched. Stack height should not exceed 26 in / 66 cm.

Step 2

Cinch the bag at the top using the provided zip tie, stopping somewhere within the word "ALLENTOWN". This is done to leave the required opening at the top of the bag which ensures the cages can be sterilized without damage. The approximate diameter of the opening should be 2 in / 5 cm. At this step DO NOT seal the bag completely with the zip tie. Place the bagged cages into the sterilizer. (Bags are compatible with dry-heat sterilization.)

Step 3

Once the cycle is complete, check to see that the "ALLENTOWN" words printed on the bag have changed from green to blue. This is an indication that the bagged cages have completed your sterilization process. Then, cinch the bag beyond the word "ALLENTOWN" on the zip tie to seal it completely before transporting the cages to the area where they will be removed. To remove the cages from the bag, cut the bag or the zip tie.

Recommendations for proper usage of the Allentown bags are provided, however these recommendations do not take the place of a validation by facility authorities responsible for their specific sterilization process.
