Bio Bond® anti migration protection
idENTICHIP® is unique in being fitted with the only patented device to guard against migration of the microchip once implanted.
The Bio Bond® is a polypropylene collar which is attached to the microchip. The bodies reaction to the implantation of an inert microchip is to “fix” the loose body. This collar allows the tissue to attach to what was an otherwise glass surface.
Long Double bevelled needles
idENTICHIP® needles are specifically designed to cause the minimum trauma , they do not punch a hole in the skin but the double edge cuts a slit through which the long bevel passes much like a wedge.
This reduces the trauma and promotes quick healing.
Once a needle has penetrated the skin it is desirable for it to pass through easily without “drag”, idENTICHIP® needles are siliconised to “slip” through the skin. This is particularly noticeable in the tougher cats skin.
Choice of implanters
The most popular implanter remains the disposable sterile needle which fits into a re usable pistol grip handle. Where a single piece disposable implanter is required identichip has a sterile syringe presentation. The needle can be detached for disposal in the sharps bin.
A microchip is of very little use if the owners details are not available when a lost pet is found. idENTICHIP® operates the most comprehensive Back Tracking system to ensure the best chance of a lost pet being reunited with its owner.
When an idENTICHIP® is sold to an implanter it is immediately registered on ANIBASE® against the details of the implanter. Implanters are supplied with record sheets to log all owners at the time of implantation. This ensures that even if an owner does not complete a registration form or it gets “lost in the post” we can identify an owner via the implanter.
Comprehensive support is offered in the promotion and marketing of the microchip service to your clients. Point of sale material is available and our owner awareness campaign in 2013 will see us investing in advertising, social media launches and digital activity to promote the importance of microchipping and raising awareness of its success.
idENTICHIP® is also a major supporter of National Microchip Month and produces a number of promotional items to support implanters at this time.
At all times the support of Animalcare’s local sales representative is available to you.
And finally...the technical bit
idENTICHIP® is a microchip and an electromagnetic coil in a glass capsule the size of a grain of rice. We use glass for our capsules as glass is the only substrate which has been proven to withstand body fluid from attacking the inner workings of the implanted microchip.
idENTICHIP® responds to a low voltage 134 Khz electronic signal from the scanner and transmits its unique code, which is then displayed on the screen.
