Accurate and Reliable Implantable Programmable Temperature Transponder

Recording an animal’s body temperature accurately has never been easier. With the IPTT-300, researchers can collect both identification and temperature data with one transponder. Designed to operate with BMDS Smart Probes 6000 and 7000 series Reader-Programmers, the IPTT-300 is engineered to be the most reliable and statistically accurate temperature transponder in the industry.

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

Access temperature data with every scan. With a simple scan of a glass-encapsulated IPTT-300 transponder using a compatible BMDS Smart Probe, researchers can access both the identification codes and subcutaneous tissue temperature of an implanted animal.

Simple, humane implantation. At approximately 14 millimeters in length by 2 millimeters in diameter, the IPTT-300 can be simply and humanely implanted within an animal. Designed to be minimally invasive, IPTT-300 transponders are injected using a syringe-like action with a pre-sterilized disposable needle gently into an animal’s tissue.

Anit-Migration Cap. The IPTT-300 features an internationally patented “anti-migration” device that securely anchors the transponder to tissue at the implant site. A polymer coating on the capsule-shaped microchip encourages soft tissue to form and anchor the transponder securely in place. The transponder also is biocompatible, making it suitable for all laboratory animal species.

A turnkey, pre-sterilized assembly. Each IPTT-300 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. IPTT-300 transponders are packaged in boxes of 100.

Passive, battery-free power. Don’t ever worry about an IPTT-300 transponder losing data because it is not connected to a power source. As a battery-free chip, the IPTT-300 is completely powered by a Smart Probe when it scans the transponder. The IPTT-300 retains stored information even when it is not powered.
