RFID Products For Veterinary Use
Microchip tags, using RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) are now widely used to provide pet owners with peaceof mind and to help farmers provide the traceability of livestock needed to promote public confidence in foodsafety. RFID tags also provide a means to identify laboratory animals, simplifying the collection of experimentaldata. Tagging has proved its value in helping to track and trace both domestic and farm animals. Soon EULegislation will require all equines to be tagged.CoreRFID specialises in supplying the technology needed for animal tagging and checking; offering tags, injectors,and readers.CoreRFID are specialists in RFID with over 12 years experience in tagging and tracing systems.

Injectable Animal Tags
CoreRFID provides injectable animal tags that conform to the ISO11784/5 standard for animal tags. These 12mm long “grain of rice” tags,pre-encoded with unique identity numbers, come in boxes containing areusable injector, 12 sterile one-time needles and tags each with six self adhesive barcode strips with the same number. This allows for tags andaccompanying documentation to be linked one to another.ISO 11784/5 is the standard used for companion animal repatriationsystems based on RFID animal tagging (such as PetLog) and for identification of animals for DEFRA’s PETS (Pets Travel Scheme). PETSdepends on a Pet Passport which uses an RFID chip to allow animals totravel between those countries subscribing to the scheme.The self adhesive barcoded strips provided with our ISO compatible tagsare designed to be used in conjunction with the DEFRA Passport ControlSheet so that a passport number can be uniquely linked to a specificchip and thus a specific animal.These tags are also available in a non-ISO version (EM4102) for research animal use and for use in wildlife tracking or similar scientific use.
