Injected with a syringe-like action, IPT-300 transponders are preloaded in a disposable needle assembly. The ergonomic design of this one-piece tool fully integrates the handle, stainless steel needle, and drive pin. Packaged in boxes of 100, needle assemblies (one transponder each) are processed through an ethylene oxide cycle for sterilization. No assembly is required. Pick it up, remove the needle cap, implant the transponder, and dispose of— all in one clean operation.
- Programmable memory onboard each chip eliminates need for cross-referencing data files used by standard read-only transponders
- May be programmed in the needle assembly or after implantation
- May be appended, edited, or locked for user security purposes
- Passive, battery-free
- Biocompatible; suitable for all laboratory animal species
Complementarily, the BMDS DASHost software facilitates importing data into widely used applications such as Excel, offers a menu-driven solution to collecting data from various sources (scales, calipers, etc.) and provides an ingenious method to receive, map, control, and route data. Despite its small size, it has a read distance of
3 inches, making it suitable for universal applications. Designed for harmless implantation, BMDS Micro-Transponders is the most convenient, humane, reliable, and cost-effective method for automated animal identification.
