Identification for Wildlife & Endangered Species

Trovan has been providing innovative solutions in the field of wildlife identification since 1991. The Trovan system has been recognized as the premier wildlife identification solution since that time beginning with the endorsement of the TROVAN system by the Conservation Breeding Specialist Group of the I.U.C.N., and the subsequent guidance by CITES in 1992, which recommended adherence to the CBSG recommendations. Today, over 300 zoos worldwide, 150 government agencies in 25 countries, and organizations such as WWF, rely on TROVAN to fulfill their identification and tracking needs.

Trovan offers a range of portable readers at price points for all budgets and a range of microchip implantation solutions and sizes.

With its unmatched read range, read area and read speed, and system robustness, the TROVAN system provides reliable solutions in many applications where conventional RFID systems will not do the job.

Not All Microchips 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 microchip QUICKLY in a single pass, or whether they miss the chip. In these three respects, Trovan microchips are best-of-class.

  • Biocompatibility

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

  • Durability

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

When you ask for TROVAN microchips you are asking for the best for your animal.
