Animal identification is essential to ensure the success of any preclinical study requiring the use of animal models. Early individual identification of mice is important to maintain data integrity throughout the course of research study. Implantable RFID microchips are ideal for this application as they offer a permanent, electronic and simple method for positive identification of animals as small as neonatal mice.
This white paper summarizes data from a recent study demonstrating the feasibility of inserting a small microchip without anesthesia in pre-weaned mice for positive and permanent identification. READ MORE
