Research Animal Hydration Products

The World’s #1 Choice for Hydrating Research Animals

Leading research institutions trust ClearH2O’s products to hydrate their laboratory animals during shipment, quarantine, weaning, and trial conditions as well as during acclimation to automated watering system, or events requiring emergency water backup supply.

  • The world’s #1 choice for hydrating research animals, HydroGel® is a barrier packed, water gel that keeps research animals completely hydrated, clean, and dry during shipping. With a 24-month shelf life, HydroGel® requires no refrigeration or special handling. That is why leading breeders and research animal suppliers have shipped over 100 million animals using HydroGel®.
  • AquaPak® is purified water for laboratory animals packaged in a ready-to-use pouch. It serves as an excellent emergency water source, a convenient extended water supply, and a useful alternative to water bottles.
  • Formulated with electrolytes to replenish & rehydrate, DietGel® Recovery is a nutritionally fortified water gel that aids in the recovery of post surgical, weak or impaired rodents. Proven to increase survival rates in compromised animals, it contains 70% water and purified ingredients. 
  • Especially formulated for non-human primates with an appealing flavor profile and containing 92% water, ClearH2O’s LabGel® promotes enhanced consumption to ensure supplemental hydration. LabGel®‘s firm consistency and high palatability make it ideal for use with enrichment devices. 

Our hydration products come in two different packaging: cups or pouches. Cups are best suited for cages: simply remove the foil lids and place at the bottom of the cage, or look into some gel cup delivery devices. Pouches are best suited for shipping and transportation, whether the animals go to another building on campus or across the ocean! We recommend to slice an “X” into the pouch, or remove a flap completely, to allow better access to the gel by the animals, before placing in the shipping box or crate.

ClearH2O’s quality products allow you to accomplish your research without compromise. Not only do your research animals stay hydrated and healthy, but labor is reduced, improving productivity and performance within your animal care facility.
