Microchip for animals Planet ID Sensitive Label Transponder
For the identification of household pets and other domestic animals, or laboratory animals, we supply:
1.4 mm x 9 mm ISO FDX-B glass transponder in a cannula with a blade length of 32 mm, blister-packed along with six Type 128 barcode stickers, ETO sterilised.
The planet Sensitive Label ID transponder is the first 100% ISO 11784 and ISO 11785 compliant injectable transponder in bioglass with an outstanding reading distance.
The diameter of the transponder with 1.41mm implies a significant reduction of the needle, thus younger, smaller and lighter animals may be identified. (Dog, cat, fish, small rodents and birds)
Transponder technology for animals has been standardised around the world since 1996.
The advantage of this is that transponders can be used all across the world and read by reading devices made by various manufacturers.
Just like an inoculation, the transponder is inserted beneath the animal's skin (dogs, cats, small rodents), or into its muscular system (horses). Once there it is quickly assimilated into the connective tissue, so that the animal can no longer feel it. The transponder itself is inert, so there are no electromagnetic fields with the potential to harm the animal.
Transponders have an antenna but not their own power supply. Their sole task is to send a unique number previously programmed into them.
The transponder can only be activated (for milliseconds) with the help of a corresponding reading device, to which it then sends its unique code number. The low frequency transponder used in animals cannot be influenced by microwaves, x-rays, electromagnetic fields or radio waves.
When a household pet is fitted with a transponder, the master data are always compulsorily registered at the same time: that is to say, the code number and the animal's personal data, along with the name and address of its owner, are registered at an appropriate data bank.
When an animal is found without an owner being immediately apparent, its transponder code number can be read without any physical contact. Following this, it's simply a matter of a phone call or a small amount of online research for the owner to be notified within minutes, thus significantly reducing the amount of time the animal must spend in an animal home. Not surprisingly, vets too have access to the corresponding reading devices, since veterinary practices are very often the first port of call when lost or stray animals are found.
Furthermore, the transponder becomes a form of life insurance for the animal, guaranteeing that it will be returned to its owner and thus eliminating the risk of euthanasia for non-veterinary reasons.
Council regulation on animal-health movement Should your pet be lost abroad, the transponder code number will enable its provenance to be established immediately, thus showing that the animal is not ownerless and in turn enabling it to be restored to its owner swiftly and without further problems.
You should therefore be sure to register your animal with a data bank that is a member of the EPN (www.europetnet.com). The only EPN member in Germany is "ifta" (www.tierregistrierung.de). The EPN is a European association of national data banks.
