Description

Multi-purpose small animal Intensive Care Unit, providing the warmth and isolation essential for critical care needs for a variety of young, sick, injured or weak animals and birds. With an internal floor area of around 24cm square, the TLC-30 Advance is designed for rescue and recovery of small mammals or birds or for the intensive care of young. The unit is equally suited to wildlife rescue or for pet breeders, where portability and ease of cleaning are key benefits.

  • The TLC-30 Advance is portable: it has an integral carrying handle and is stackable. It operates at 12v for safety and can be powered from the mains with the adaptor (supplied) or from a car cigarette lighter (adaptor available separately, part number: 15.45).
  • The clear door is made of tough, UV resistant polycarbonate that can be closed and latched with one hand.
  • The Digital control system on the TLC-30 Advance shows temperature on a digital display in either °C or °F and includes dual adjustable alarms to warn of variations of temperature inside and outside the cabinet beyond user-set thresholds. Simply alter the temperature in 0.1°C increments by using the digital controls to adjust between room temperature and 38°C. The digital controller guards against accidental temperature adjustment. Temperature stability is maintained by a small fan which runs at low speed to minimise noise and disturbance. The adjustable vent allows plentiful ventilation in warm rooms or at low set temperatures which is important for larger animals.
  • The unit is also stackable - the feet from one unit locate in sockets in the cabinet of the unit below.
  • Cleaning the TLC-30 is easy: the hinged door lifts off and the working parts and fascia simply unclip and slide out - no tools needed - leaving the cabinet empty for deep cleaning.
  • The adjustable vent allows plentiful ventilation in warm rooms or at low set temperatures which is important for larger animals.

Protected by Biomaster antimicrobial additives - to reduce the risk of infection Brinsea incorporate Biomaster Antimicrobial Protection into our TLC-30 cabinets during manufacture. Biomaster Protection is embedded within the plastic itself which prevents the growth of harmful bacteria helping to provide the optimum environment for young animals. Proven to quickly reduce bacterial growth by up to 99.99%

As with all Brinsea's products, the TLC-30 Advance comes with a FREE 3 year guarantee, subject to online registration.

Valuable Wildlife Equipment

Posted by Melissa Tucker on 29/02/2020

I run a small home based self funded wildlife rescue and we fund raised for two of these TLC30 Advanced Stackable and Portable Incubators. We also have a TLC30 Eco but find the advanced easier to monitor within the rescue setting. We have used it for Hedgehogs and orphaned garden birds it is a highly valuable piece of equipment. It stacks nicely with other TLC30 Incubators we own, it can be used with the in-car charger to transport animals to the vets and when we need to take them home with us. Brinseas products are easy to use and a huge part of what we achieve with getting wildlife back to the wild. Many wouldn’t survive without these incubators. I couldn’t recommend them enough to any wildlife rehabilitators.

Amazing

We love the whole Brinsea range but this new more dinky version is a real space saver and perfect for the tiddlers in our care. Rescuing without Brinsea just isn't worth thinking about x

Life saver

Posted by Martinshaw Kennels on 24/11/2019

Brilliant, indispensable piece of equipment for any dog breeder. We now have 2 of these which have saved many chilled puppies as well as keeping young pups warm that need hand rearing. Some of the larger models would be ideal for a full litter (depending on the size and breed), we use the TLC-30 as we only tend to have 1 or 2 pups at a time that need help. Easy to clean and operate. The addition of a small light would help but isn’t a deal breaker. Thank you

Love this bit of kit, I keep it in the car pluged in so that it is always up and runing if I get called out on a hedgehog rescue, I can't think why Brinsea has taken so long to produce it!

Will be ordering many more.

We use both TLC-30 Eco and Advance. I love the TLC-30 carry incubator for transport.We also use the 40/50 Eco and Advance and have Used Brinsea incubators for many years and have both sizes in the large and medium Brinsea incubators. Easy to clean and look fabulous. Will be ordering many more.

Tlc-30 advance

Posted by cornwall badger rescue & brock on 25/02/2019

we bought 2 of this item and had to use one on Friday the 22nd Feb we received a call from a gent that had found a badger cub in the road so we set the TLC 30 up in the car and headed of to pick it up the TLC 30 was up to temp when we arrived and found the badger cub to be about 4 weeks old it was very cold and in dire need of care we placed him in the TLC 30 and headed to our vets who gave the cub a check over all that was wrong was he was hypothermic and needed sub cut fluids witch the vet gave him we then took him home where we now have him and he is doing Ok at this time but would have been another story if not for the TLC 30 being portable a great item

We can’t wait to get our hands on one!

Posted by Andy Cope, Bird Keeper - Bristol Zoo on 16/01/2019

The new TLC-30 portable brooder looks like a great piece of kit. We often take young chicks home with us for late night/early morning feeds and this machine will make that process much easier, as it’s lightweight, easy to carry and crucially can be powered by a 12v car supply so we know that the chicks will stay nice and warm. On top of that it looks as if it has been designed in such a way that it will be easy to clean and maintain, which is always welcome. We can’t wait to get our hands on one!

Portable and stackable!

Posted by Laura Benfield, Secret World Wildlife Rescue on 16/01/2019

We had one of the new TLC-30 incubators brought over to Secret World for us to try out. The incubator seems great, good weight and easy to carry around, the carry handle is ideal. We like the fact it can plug into a car as for some of us journey time with small orphan animals is an issue. The fact it’s smaller means that it seems to heat all the way to the floor, which for our very young animals is perfect as sometimes we have to add additional heat sources but with this incubator that shouldn’t be necessary. We hope to be in a position to have some of the TLC -30 Incubators in our hospital room where being stackable and easy to move are appealing features.
