Trovan transponder


Trovan® is one of the first transponder systems for animals. Today it is mainly used in research facilities and is suitable for the electronic identification of animals. 

The Trovan transponder is a micro-transponder the size of a grain of rice, which is injected under the skin of an animal and which contains a globally unique, tamper-proof code of numbers/letters. The Trovan transponder can be read by a compatible reader - in this way, animals can be positively identified.
