Inotiv Teklad 7087C certified soft cobs enrichment bedding material is a special blend of our Teklad corncob bedding (1/4 inch, or 0.635 cm) and our Teklad diamond dry cellulose bedding products. This unique combination of these two high-quality bedding materials provides excellent absorbency, superior odor control, and environmental enrichment, all in one convenient package. Both internal and independent studies have demonstrated that laboratory mice will actively separate and utilize the two different components in soft cobs to construct nests.
The corncob material permits improved airflow throughout the entire layer of bedding, allowing for increased evaporation of liquids. This aids in the reduction of ammonia. The particles of diamond dry cellulose bedding provide increased absorbency, and, more importantly, provide material that is used for constructing nesting areas within the cage unit. Nesting may improve breeding performance.
