The trovan Microchip
Designed and manufactured in the EU by patent-owners Trovan, these microchips have quality hard-wired into them. Each microchip is contained in a sterilized needle and individually blister packed. Each blister pack has 6 barcode labels with the microchip number attached so the number can be transferred to documents with ease.
The Trovan microchip uses the latest technology (FDX-B) which fully complies with the Pet Passport Scheme and compulsory microchipping legislation for dogs. The unique manufacturing process means each Trovan microchip has only 6 components (compared with 16 - 19 components in most other brands - see our Trovan Difference page) and does not contain any lead solder.
We can supply microchips in two sizes, the regular 12mm and mini 8mm, available in two systems - either needle only for use with a re-useable implant tool or in a convenient all-in-one format. Our mini microchip is one of the smallest microchips on the market. All our microchips can be read by any scanner capable of reading FDX-B microchips, regardless of the manufacturer.
The needle has a large double bevel, making it as sharp as a scalpel. Its thin walled design helps minimise discomfort to the animal by decreasing resistance to insertion, even on tough skinned animals. If implanters choose our two part needle and re-useable implanter system, the needle fits securely onto the implant gun or syringe using a Luer lock to remove the risk of it accidentally detaching mid-prodecure. Alternatively, with our convenient all-in-one format microchips the needle and implant tool are pre-assembled ready for immediate use.
