  • When should I use DietGels®?

    DietGel® products are soft diet formulation with carbohydrate, fat protein, and fortified with a mineral and vitamin mix (with the exception of DietGel Recovery, which only contains mineral mix). They are a superior alternative to mash diets, that can be used as the sole source of nutrition for up to 7 days. reducing time and labor costs. However, customers have used the product as a sole source of nutrition for up to 3 months with no issues. Please consult with your nutritionist for long term use. DietGel products are designed to provide compromised rodents a palatable source of hydration and energy and are an excellent solution for supplemental hydration for:

    • Breeding and weaning of pups 
    • Post-surgical support 
    • Neurologically compromised rodents 
    • EAE models, Transgenic Mice 
    • Shipping
  • What is the best way to store DietGel products?

    Unopened DietGel can be stored at room temperature and does not require special handling. Shelf life for unopened DietGel is 18 months.

    Once opened (provided the gel has not been contaminated) ClearH2O products can be stored either at room temperature or at 4°C in a sealed bag/container to prevent the product from drying out for approximately 2 weeks

  • Why does DietGel sometimes have white or brown specs?

    Non-soluble ingredients are sometimes visible in DietGel, showing up as white to brown specs or clumps. The non-soluble ingredients do not affect the nutritional integrity of the product, making it 100% safe to use for your research animal.

  • Why does the color of DietGel vary from case to case?

    Color variation occurs during our sterilization process. When DietGel products are produced the color is a milky white. The product is then sterilized. The irradiation process changes the product color from a milky white to a caramel color. Product position within the sterilization chamber results in color variation. All of the product is 100% sterile and safe to use.

  1. Excellent product if the mice will eat. Older mice eat it readily but weanlings do not.

  2. DietGel Boost was the only supplement that provided the right nutrition and hydration to maintain our finicky mouse strain, not only enabling them to survive, but also to thrive. It also aids with post-surgery recovery.

  3. Great product for transitioning weanlings to chow pellets; this is by far our biggest use for this product and it’s been great in getting our breeding colony up and running. We also found it helped sensitive mouse strains or any rodents that were losing weight on study. Much better than making a mash out of pellets.

  4. Pretty excellent product in administering Carprofen. Mice do eat it readily and attain adequate analgesia.
