RFID Cage Cards offer a unique advantage over standard print cards or even bar codes. Improve your accuracy and ease of reading by using RFID Readers. Bar codes require a 1 to 1 read, while RFID can read 1 to 1 or many at a time. This allows for faster reading and census. All reads are 100% accurate and the data is electronically sent to your Animal Management System.
