Aquatic Fine French Cuisine
Caviar is a truly unique product on the market. Caviar is composed of agglomerated micro-capsules. The agglomerated product is agglomerated in different sizes to match the different stage of the fish larval development. Each capsule is filled with small peptides and low MW soluble proteins, nucleotides, EFA based phospholipids, a balanced profile of chelated trace minerals, etc. Caviar is recently formulated with frozen krill mince (Euphausia superb) as its main ingredient. This Krill is fished in the pristine waters of the Antarctic sea. This key ingredient is giving to caviar a better palatability, increased performance and extremely low levels of contaminants such as heavy metals and dioxins.
INGREDIENTS Frozen krill mince, high quality fish and other marine proteins, fish soluble, non GMO soya isolate, refined fish oils, phospholipids, yeast and yeast extracts, vitamins and minerals.
Lomir Biomedical Inc. is one of the world’s leading brands in the design and manufacture of animal jackets for all laboratory animal species, infusion systems, collars, restraints, animal-handling and enrichment products.
Lomir’s head office and manufacturing operations are based in Notre-Dame-de-l’Île-Perrot, Quebec, Canada. All research and development is centered at this facility.
As the manufacturer Lomir provides it’s customers with the opportunity to purchase equipment made to match their specific scientific needs.
LOMIR BIOMEDICAL’S inventory of Large Animal Jackets has been designed and constructed to meet the requirements of a wide variety of subjects and activities. But there are still many procedures which have unique requirements both in the type of subject and nature of procedure. In cases such as these, LOMIR BIOMEDICAL’S design group works in close collaboration with investigators to develop custom jackets specifically matched to the subject and procedure.
ALL THE NECESSARY ACCESSORIES
For procedures requiring ambulatory equipment, LOMIR provides pouches in a range of materials and sizes for attachment to LOMIR jackets. Also available are anchoring patches for tethering systems and inserts for dermal procedures.
PET® Foraging Enrichment
These devices enable primates to feed themselves in a way that closely mimics foraging, parceling out the food in hollows where the primate must seek it out and extract it on its own initiative.
Lomir produces a range of P.E.T.® devices, each one catering to the physical and psychological abilities of a specific genus of primate. Made of opaque polypropylene, a durable material that is chemical and heat-resistant, virtually moisture resistant, and crack proof, P.E.T.® devices are engineered for ease of use. Assembly is a snap, replenishing with food is quick and cleaning to eliminate bacteria can be accomplished with minimal effort.
Made of highly durable polypropylene with stainless steel fasteners and mounts for long life and trouble-free performance.
Easily washed and sanitized at temperatures up to 180° to eliminate potentially harmful bacteria
Designed for simple attachment to the outside of a primate enclosure.
Quick assembly and food replenishing.
Small animals are prone to stress and require extra care in handling. Mechanical restraints frequently require the involvement of two personnel: one to restrain and one to perform. The resulting stress and discomfort for the subject can often jeopardize the efficiency of the procedure.
The “SNUGGLE FAMILY” uses the principle of a cocoon rather than a rigid structure for immobilization. The multiple flaps perform two functions: They are adjustable around the subject for effective yet comfortable restraint, and positioned, or left open for access depending on the procedure. Both restraint and procedure can be carried out by one handler.
THE LOMIR DIFFERENCE
The LOMIR “SNUGGLE FAMILY” is manufactured from flexible yet extremely durable canvas fabric. The fabric is coated with nylon to facilitate laundering for reuse. Wide flaps with velcro fasteners allow for maximum flexibility, ease of use and adjustment for fit between individual subjects. The “SNUGGLE FAMILY” is available in different sizes for a complete range of animals including pregnant females. Blood Collection, Vaginal Samples, Bolus Injection, Veterinary Exams, Gavage, Transport and more.
Rabbit: Small, Medium, Large, X-Large
Guinea Pig: Small, Medium, Large, X-Large
Rodent: X-Small, Small, Medium, Large, X-Large

Aramis Micro Tattoo Kit
The Aramis Laboratory Animal Microtattoo System is a quick, efficient and affordable method of permanently identifying laboratory animals (particularly mice and rats as early as 1 day old).
Designed and tested by laboratory animal technicians, the system utilizes a hypodermic needle at one end of a stainless steel forcep and a small metal cup containing Ketchum Green Tattoo Paste at the other side of the forcep. By squeezing the forcep together, the needle penetrates the toe/foot pad, ear or tail of the animal and injects a deposit of green paste in the animal. Paste now available in white. Abbott Laboratories thinks our micro tattoo system is a great alternative to ear punches and tags.
Mouse Ear Tags
The latest addition to our lab animal product line is ear tags for mice. Each one can be colour coded and has a unique number on them, this is a great way to identify mice when they are group housed.
- Available in a variety of colours
- Available in boxes of 100
- Pre-numbered or custom numbering available (up to 3 digits)
6900 Irradiated iso-PADS
so-PADS represent the next generation of bedding materials.

SEALED, SAFE, SPECIALTY MOUSE SHIPPER M10-3
Wouldn’t it be nice if shipping containers were:
. . . divided into sealed compartments so that species and sexes couldn’t intermingle?
. . . easy to remove animals avoiding bites and scratches?
. . . designed to avoid stress and injury to the animal?
. . . had lots of view ports and air holes to avoid unnecessary opening?
. . . came sterile or on site autoclaveable and could be directly filled in a barrier?
. . . could be easily unpacked (no handling) with mice sliding right into their permanent cages?
We thought so too; so we did it! and also added: 100% recycleable!
THE CARRIER BOX CT-3
The box will take three seperate Trans-Tainer tubes effectively separating strains,species, mircro-flora, health status & sexes.
Tube isolation prevents cross contamination.
Assembly and loading instructions are clearly printed on box.
“LIVE ANIMAL” alerts are very visible to all courriers and handlers. Flaps fold down to create tabs which create an “air gap” so that end of box cannot be blocked off.
approx size: 22.5” X 17.5” X 7.5”
The shape rodents feel comfortable in, they build tunnels!
No corners or any place to begin gnawing.
Reusable Opaque Polypropylene PPT & Clear Polycarbonate PPC are easily sanitized in cage washers and are safe for temperatures and disinfectants found in most facilities.
Simple, cost effective and economical! Barrier Friendly – Entry into the barrier is a simple: spray or soak.

The Transfer Container T2-16
Shown standing up is our “across campus” solution for transporting mice from one barrier to another or to another space within the facility or institution.
We think “milkshake containers” should be used for milkshakes!
Polysulphone tube with end caps, SIZE: 3″ dia. X 9″ long,
Ideal for those short trips to the lab or MRI.
THE END CAP EC-G
Securely snaps on, seal must be broken to remove. When cap is removed tube is slightly tilted and animals slide gently into cage.
A new cap is always used and the .5 Micron polypropylene filter is ideal for hazardous species and reduces risk to handlers!
