p-Chips; identification of small laboratory animals without image disturbance*

* SPECT, CT, MRI, Coen Beam and Radiation in Pantak (10Gray)

 

The ultra small, silicone clip with individual serial numbers are implanted into the mouse's tail in under 1 minute then read by the custom ID reader.

1. Restrain Mouse 2 Inject p-chip 3. read with custom ID reader

The principle involves placing the p-Chip under the skin of an animal, such as a mouse, or attaching it to an animal (e.g., ants) and reading its ID at desired experimental points using a proprietary reader.

A complete system for tagging laboratory mice and other small animals hs been developed.

 

The key elements are:

p-Chips, mounted in sterilized injectors
ID reader ("wand") and software to read IDs
MouseTrack database software for colony management and recording of experimental results
