The Industry Standard ‘Read-Only’ Transponder for Fail-Safe Identification Just got Smaller

New to the market, the IMI-500 ‘read-only' transponder is identical in function to the industry leading IMI-1000, but in a much smaller package.

Medical grade glass encapsulation. Ensure long life inside, and out side of the specimen.

Access identification data with every scan. With a simple scan of a glass-encapsulated IMI-500 transponder using a compatible BMDS Smart Probe, researchers can access the 10-digit alphanumeric identification codes of an implanted animal.

Simple, humane implantation. At approximately 8 millimeters in length by 1.4 millimeters in diameter, the IMI-500 can be simply and humanely implanted within an animal. Designed to be minimally invasive, IMI-500 transponders injected using a syringe-like action with a pre-sterilized disposable needle gently into an animal’s tissue.

A turnkey, pre-sterilized assembly. Each IMI-500 transponder is pre-loaded in an easy-to-use sterilized needle assembly comprised of a handle, the stainless steel needle and drive pin. No assembly is required. Simply remove the needle cap, implant the transponder and dispose—all in one clean operation. IMI-500 transponders are packaged in boxes of 100.

Passive, battery-free power. As a battery-free chip, the IMI-500 is powered by a Smart Probe RF signal when it scans the transponder. The IMI-500 retains stored information even when it is not powered.
