Microchip IDENTIFICATION SYSTEM  

 

You have heard of the advantages of microchip identification.  Now you can put it to work at your facility using AVID® microchips and scanners...  Each microchip contains a unique number. Think of it as an injectable social security number for the animal. Chip numbers are registered to you upon purchase. Your records will indicate which animal has which chip.

SCANNERS - AVID® scanners are battery powered and carry a one-year warranty.  You simply pass the scanner over the implant site and it quickly detects and reads the chip, sending the number to the viewing screen in seconds.  Code  Mini Tracker Reader II

 

Bulk MicroChips


Non-sterile microchips in easy-to-dispense cartridges of 25.  You must scan bulk chips prior to injection to identify the number on the chip.  You must disinfect, load and inject each chip with a reusable bulk syringe.  Chips can be rescued and injected to different animals after sterilization (not autoclaveable)  Code 25ACH  pkg of 25 numbered  chips

Laboratory Animal Microtattoo System

It is a quick, efficient and affordable method of permanently identifying laboratory animals (particularly mice as early as 1 day old). Designed and tested by laboratory animal technicians, the system utilizes a hypodermic needle at one end of a stainless steel forceps and a small metal cup containing green tattoo paste at the other side of the forceps. By squeezing the forceps together, the needle penetrates the toe or footpad or ear of the animal and injects a deposit of green tattoo paste in the animal. A grid location pattern provided enables a numbering system that extends over 1 million.   Code  Tattoo S

Metal Mesh gloves

They provide security and a sure grip. Experience shows that animals are easier to control when handlers are relaxed and confident. Much better than leather since metal mesh is more flexible, is readily cleaned, will not stain or corrode, and does not carry odors. These gloves maybe worn over surgical gloves, if desired. Adjustable buckle wrist band prevents slipping. Convert from right to left and vice versa by turning inside out.   3 sizes available (Small, Medium, Large).  Code  MMG 100 S – M or L

 

 

Kevlar and Leather gloves

Complete integrated protection system for animal handlers and their subjects. To safeguard personnel while handling animals, we  manufacture a complete range of handling equipment designed and fabricated for flexibility, comfort and safety during long periods of wear.   Small Medium, Large and X-Large. Available as pairs or singles.

Plastics Feeding Needles Tubes – Gavage

CLICK here to see new BROCHURE

Plastic rodent feeding needles reduce the risk of trauma and provide a simple, low cost, disposable solution for oral gavage. These feeding tubes feature medical grade materials to minimize the risk of interactions with test compounds. The tube is constructed of polypropylene, the same material used in plastic syringes. The soft, bulb-shaped tip is fabricated from medical grade silicone and is designed to prevent inadvertent placement in the trachea and reduce the risk of trauma and perforation.   Sterile, single packed.

Parafilm

Parafilm M® is a semi-transparent, flexible thermoplastic. Many unique properties make it ideal and adaptable for numerous laboratory uses and techniques. It molds and seals tightly around test tubes, flasks and irregular surfaces. It is moisture-proof, impervious to aqueous solutions, and protects anhydrous materials. When stretched, Parafilm M® increases lengthwise approximately 200%. Yet when tension is removed, film only partially returns to original length.  The Dispenser/Cutter accommodates either 4" or 2" wide rolls, and a quick downward push cleanly cuts at the desired length.

Code 51355   Parafilm, 2-inch roll  -  Code 51356   Parafilm, 2-Inch, case of 24 rolls

Code 51357   Parafilm, 4-Inch roll  -  Code 51358   Parafilm, 4-Inch, case of 12 rolls
