• Shepherd Alpha-Dri Bedding

Assured variable control - Defined composition assures accurate control of variables, which makes ALPHA-dri ideal for GLP research

Dust elimination - Sanitary and virtually dustless, ALPHA-driĀ® reduces cross contamination, filter clogging and problems of dust adherence to animals.

Cost reduction - Approximately ten times as absorbent as wood chips, ALPHA-dri does more with less material. What's more, its rapid evaporation means it stays dry longer. Since you need less material to do the same job, ALPHA-dri reduces storage space and cuts maintenance time and labor.

Improved animal observation - Bright, white color aids in animal observation. Discharges and lab spills are readily noticeable.

Static elimination - No static means no troublesome bridging in dispensing equipment.

Availability - ALPHA-dri is supplied in technical, irradiated, and individually batch-certified grades.

Uniform Particle Size - ALPHA-dri is manufactured with our strict quality control at our facility.

Packaging - Both certified and technical grades are packaged in high strength autoclavable bags.

ALPHA-dri is comprised of pure, virgin paper cellulose which is virtually free of confounding contaminants. For this reason, ALPHA-dri is suitable to use right out of the bag for most studies. Bedding materials comprised of harvested by-products like corn cob and wood chips usually require autoclaving or irradiation treatments to reduce biological contaminants to acceptable levels. ALPHA-dri absorbs 300% of its own weight which is 5 times more absorbent than some grades of corn cob. Superior absorbency means the quantity of bedding needed per cage can be significantly reduced.

Product Size: 20 lb bag
