ALPHA-twist™ is comprised of twisted multi-layered paper that is chopped into short lengths. Once in a cage, rodents unfurl and manipulate them into fluffy nests.

Features and Benefits

(1) Maximum Environmental Enrichment: Species specific behaviors are nurtured and enhanced through the unrolling of the material for use in nest building. One roll of ALPHA-twist™ can be unrolled into a 5 inch strand of paper!

(2) Customized Dosage: Technicians can custom dose each cage with an exact amount of material to satisfy a particular cage or housing arrangement. Other cotton based nesting materials are pre-cut into individual doses which limit flexibility and cost reduction procedures.

(3) Economical: One bag of ALPHA-twist™ can provide enrichment for over 1400 standard cages. The cost per cage for exceptional enrichment is less than traditional cotton based nesting enrichment items.

(4) Safer to Use: ALPHA-twist is safer to use due to its low dust content and the absence of long cotton fiber strands eliminate strangulation issues.

(5) ALPHA-twist™ is also offered pre-blended in our PLUS line of bedding materials.
