Overview

tagging

mouse

p-Chips®  are being used today to tag mice for laboratory research. Compared to traditional RFID approaches, toe clipping, ear tagging or tattooing, the p-Chip injector solution provides a more reliable approach for identifying and keeping track of mice. With p-Chips you have foolproof identification of each mouse in your colony with the added benefits of ensured chain of custody and zero data entry and transcription errors.

Mouse Movie (flv): The first part of the movie shows the implantation of the p-Chip into the tail of a mouse. Then, a sequence of three ID readings of three mice is shown. The beep indicates that the ID was read.
