Implantation Procedure

This short video show the implantation procedure and technique.

The PELIT® Leg Implant is a low cost micro-transceiver sealed in a glass capsule. This Implant has been designed with an anti-migratory cap to anchor it exactly where it is injected. These RFIDs are easily implanted using the custom built implant applicator.

The RFID Leg Implant is a passive electronic device. This means that the Implant carries no batteries and remains inactive until activated by a low-power radio frequency signal from the scanner. The scanner picks up an animal’s unique signal and relays it to the computer to initiate some immeditate action or to provide real-time information on that animal.

Somehow, you are still in need of an eartag with better value for the memory. You know it pays to choose the best whatever your budget.
