The La Trobe Animal Research and Teaching Facility (LARTF) provides housing, husbandry, technical resources and expertise supporting the use of a diverse range of animals involved in research and teaching activities. It offers a range of facilities and services including;
• Agistment, husbandry and colony management for rats, mice and zebrafish, including genetically modified strains
• Specialised care and housing for avian, reptile and native animals
• Behavioural neuroscience suites with state-of-the-art behaviour testing equipment
• Fully equipped surgical facilities with isoflurane anaesthesia and instrument autoclave

The recent infrastructure upgrade at the Animal House 1 required new equipment for the fresh air requirement.
Armcor was chosen to deliver an energy recovery unit packaged with chilled and hot water coils, non-return dampers and bag filters. The engineering design included redundancy supply and exhaust fans for emergency use. These were incorporated in the design and production.

Whenever your next project requires something additional, Armcor have the capacity to integrate custom features to locally manufacture exactly what you need.
As the HVAC replacement market grows with many units now reaching their life span, custom designs to match or fit existing conditions are becoming the norm.
