7084 Teklad pelleted paper bedding is an environmentally friendly choice in laboratory animal bedding material. It is made primarily from pre-consumer recycled paper, mixed with some aspen hardwood sawdust as a pelleting aid, so it is very clean, highly absorbent, and non-toxic. Originally designed as a non-contact bedding and cat litter, pelleted paper has been increasingly used as a contact bedding with excellent results, particularly in superior absorbency and odor control. It also will not plug automated watering valves.
Unlike most other pelleted paper bedding products, which are made up mostly of post-consumer recycled newspaper, 7084 Teklad pelleted paper bedding is made from pre-consumer recycled paper, most of which was never printed upon. This is a very important distinction, because this product will not contain any bits of plastic, string, staples, high ink content, or other contaminants that can be introduced in the post-consumer recycling process. Pre-consumer paper is also never subjected to any chemical de-inking solvents. For the small percentage of raw material that we use that does have printing on it, only soy ink is used. The net result is a much safer, cleaner, and lighter colored product that will not turn your white rodents gray!
7084 Pelleted paper bedding is produced in a sanitary plant that is dedicated solely to the production of laboratory animal bedding products. This plant employs stringent quality assurance, housekeeping and sanitation procedures consistent with what the research community demands and expects.
7084 Pelleted paper bedding is packaged in 40-pound bags.
