Implantable programmable microchip for all species

Code UC-2112-24
The UID Implantable Programmable Microchip (UC-2112) is ideal for positive and permanent identification in rats and larger laboratory animals. With microchip dimensions of 2.1 mm in diameter and 12 mm in length, it is the is the most common size for use in almost all laboratory animals.

Each microchip is supplied individually packaged in sterile cannula for quick and easy implantation using a wide range of UID injectors. Each transponder contains a unique, non-repeating, alphanumeric code for positive animal identification. In addition, the UC-2112 microchip contains up to 16 alphanumeric characters that enable read/write programmable capabilities. This feature allows researchers to program the microchip with useful “human readable” data, such as study number, genotype or animal DOB. The UC-2112 implantable transponder is easily programmed in cannula prior to insertion using the UPS-60 Chip Provisioning Station, or after implantation while in the animal using the UID UBS-200L Base Station reader. The UID programmable microchips are fail-proof and do not lose their programmed information, unlike those of other providers.
