So, what does that mean in practice?

RFID contributes to Fraunhofer Institute’s research

The naked mole-rat, aka the sand puppy, may not be the cutest or most impressive of mammals, but it captivates scientists with its longevity and its resistance to cancer. To better explore these remarkable creatures, the Fraunhofer Institute for Cell Therapy and Immunology (IZI) in Leipzig, Germany, uses Smartrac’s Intrace® SYyringe implanting system with the smallest glass tag on the market (1.25mm x 8.3mm) to ensure maximum animal protection.

Animal identification made easy with our readers

Smartrac's new Intrace RH5 and Eartrace RH7 readers offer capabilities to match the advantages of its animal identification systems.

Temperature-sensing capabilities for our LF glass tags

LF (low frequency) glass tags offer specific benefits under demanding conditions, whether high-temperature or high-acidity indLF (low frequency) glass tags offer specific benefits under demanding conditions, whether high-temperature or high-acidity industrial environments, or in use with live animals. Now, Smartrac expands these benefits with temperature-sensing capabilities.
