High Impact Polypropylene


The V-Rat tub is the larger version of the V-Mouse breeding tub. It has approximately a 17-quart capacity making it perfect for breeding small groups of laboratory mice and rats such as Crl:CD(SD).

This tub is made from our durable high impact polypropylene plastic. The plastic is 25% thicker than a consumer storage bin. Because of this, our tubs are stronger and more durability and flex less.

We offer significant discounts on bulk tub orders see pricing.

Designed for Small Breeding Operations

The V-Rat and smaller V-Mouse tubs are perfectly designed for breeding small groups of mice in laboratories. Universities, research laboratories, and breeding facilities all use our tubs. Our tubs have high straight sides for better visibility of ear tags, litters, mating, and mice health.

If you are housing more than 5 mice or more than one rat in a single tub, the V-Rat is the perfect breeding tub. The V-Mouse tub, on the other hand, is the perfect size for mating a male mouse with 1 or 2 females, and for housing a pregnant female.

If you are breeding large numbers of mice or rats, our rodent breeding racks may be the best option for you.
