Made out of biocompatible glass, the tags are manufactured in Germany under superior standards in order to ensure the highest quality.
The glass transponders operate at 134.2 kHz. Compliance with ISO 11784 and 11785 guarantee interoperability with other standard components and systems.
The ergonomic design of the implant system and the precision-cut cannula guarantee easy subcutaneous implantation of the glass tag. Enclosed barcode labels support simple handling when registering the animal.
