Not All PIT tags Are Created Equal

  • Read range, Read area, Read speed

These three factors are critical. They determine whether a reader will be able to detect the PIT tag QUICKLY in a single pass, or whether they miss the chip. In these three respects, Trovan PIT tags are best-of-class.

  • Biocompatibility

Only glass encapsulation provides an impermeable barrier protecting the electronics inside the capsule.
Trovan PIT tags are encapsulated in specially made bioglass which is non-toxic to the animals.

  • Durability

A Trovan PIT tag's glass capsule is laser sealed an automated process that ensures a precision seal of the glass capsule, protecting the electronics inside.

  • Reliability

Trovan’s patented PIT tag design has only 1/3 the connection points and components of conventionally assembled PIT tags. Fewer connection points and components ensures highest reliability.
Full automation during production eliminates the human factor found in conventional PIT tag assembly processes and ensures unmatched reliability.
