Syringe implanter Tool
The petDetect syringe implanter offers a simple, lightweight alternative to the microchip implant gun. To use, simply attach the needle to the gun by turning the needle to the right. A luer lock holds the needle in place for safety during the procedure. Pushing the plunger will deploy the microchip. To remove the needle from the unit, replace the needle cover and then turn it to the left.
We find that in general veterinary surgeons prefer these to the gun style.
The Implanter syringe is actually best (in our opinion), because it allows the Implanter to easily control the cutting edge of the needle, placing it in a perfect position to cut through the skin.
Please ensure you use the correct size syringe for the size of microchip you are implanting. Regular Needle only microchip needles supplied after 17th July 2018 are SHORTER and should only be used with the Mini white Implanter, not the blue one.
Syringes supplied by petDetect can only be used with Trovan microchips.
