Trovan microchips have been used and recommended by zoos and wildlife projects worldwide for many years. Now the FDX-B microchip transponders are available in the UK through ZooChip as part of petDetect. They are fully ISO 11784 and 11785 compliant.
The unique patented design of the Trovan chips, plus six-sigma manufacture and laser programming give fantastic reliability and unlimited read times.
