LifeChip® with Bio-Thermo™ Technology for Wild animals in Zoological Gardens
LifeChip® with Bio-Thermo™ Technology

Digital Angel Corporation®, makers of Destron Fearing® brand products, is the global leader in the development of advanced Radio Frequency Identification (RFID).
Since 1945, Destron Fearing products have been the standard for livestock, companion animal and fishery identification applications around the world and now in Romania with his distributor-Care for Your Family srl-(www.cyf-medical-distribution.ro.)

Now, Destron Fearing introduces a revolutionary new product for pets and Wild Animals. The LifeChip® with Bio-Thermo™ technology. LifeChip not only provides your animals with a unique identification code, it's also capable of convenient and non-evasive temperature measurement.

HOW DOES THE LIFECHIP WORK?

LifeChip® with Bio-Thermo™ Technology

The LifeChip RFID microchip is about the size of a grain of rice. It contains a unique, unalterable, 15-digit identification code. The numbers are pre-assigned and coded during manufacturing according to the ISO (International Organization for Standards). Once the LifeChip is implanted and the 15-digit code is registered into a database, this number becomes the lifetime identity of your animal.
LifeChip uses the energy in the radio signal from the Destron Fearing Universal Pocket Reader to create the power it requires to activate the LifeChip microchip. Upon receiving this radio signal, the microchip sensor sends back the animal's identification code, determines the animal's temperature and sends this information back to the reader where the information is seen on an LED screen.

  • RFID microchips are the most secure, safe and unobtrusive form of Camelid identification
  • No two RFID codes are the same, anywhere in the world
  • Reading the chip number is done by simply passing a handheld reader over the animal where the chip is implanted
  • RFID numbers can be read by any Destron Fearing or any other ISO compliant reader
  • Only the Destron Universal Pocket-Reader® can read animal temperatures, and have an anti-migation micro-capsule made of bio-compatible material.

BIO-THERMO TEMPERATURE SENSING BENIFITS

LifeChip® with Bio-Thermo™ Technology

THERE IS NOTHING ELSE LIKE IT.

Heat stress is a well known risk at heavy-fleeced animals. Early detection is critical. The LifeChip with Bio-Thermo Technology allows you to check the temperature of your animals accurately, conveniently and as often as you like with minimal stress to the animal.
Ohio State University studies showed the LifeChip is a highly reliable indicator of body temperature. Implanted correctly, it will provide temperatures consistent with rectal temperatures.
LifeChip will not completely replicate rectal temperature and is not intended to provide diagnostic capabilities. If other symptoms of illness, plus the presence of fever exist, consult your veterinarian for a complete diagnosis.


BIO-THERMO LifeChip is a unique and revolutionary product for use in Pets, dogs and cats.

  • Provides a safe, unobtrusive way to uniquely identify individual animal
  • Provides a less stressful way to alert owners of health problems through temperature sensing

THE VALUE OF LIFECHIP (RFID) IDENTIFICATION.

For a growing number of reasons, electronic Identification Is now a requirement in the much of the animal industry areas.

  • Patented process makes certain microchip stays where it is implanted
  • Animals of all kinds are co-mingled at sale barns, show facilities and fairs
  • Nationally-identified animals can make disease containment faster and more effective
  • Individual electronic identification avoids paper registration mistakes
  • Electronic ID avoids animal substitution, so you're sure the animal you are buying is the animal you want
  • Lost or stolen animals can be identified and returned to their rightful owners
  • Identification databases can be accessed by veterinarians, show superintendents, breed registries and police and animal rescue personnel

IMPLANTING THE LIFECHIP.

LifeChip® with Bio-Thermo™ Technology

Each LifeChip microchip is preloaded into a sterilized, single-use syringe. The syringe is then sealed into a sterile blister pack. Each LifeChip syringe packet comes with a convenient removable bar code that matches the 15-digit code of the microchip in that individual syringe. These bar codes can be used on ILR and ARI registration forms as proof of Identification.
1)Identify the administration site.
In Llamas and Alpacas, the ideal microchip site is located above and in front of or behind the ear on the "poll" of the head. This location also contains a multitude of tiny blood vessels, improving the temperature sensing capabilities of the LifeChip. Studies at Ohio State University have confirmed this to be the best location for the LifeChip
2)Scan the administration site and surrounding area with an approved RFID reader to determine if a microchip has been previously administered. If so, a second microchip should not be administered.
3) Scan the microchip in the package to:
-Ensure proper RFID reading
-Verify the number scanned matches the one printed on the bar code sticker.
4) Aseptically prepare the site for administration
5)Remove the protective cap and insert the needle into the site up to its base.
6) Tent the skin and inject the needle all the way to the hub.
7) Depress the plunger.
8) Apply light pressure to the administration site when removing the delivery device and afterward to minimize any bleeding. Treat as needed.
9) Replace the needle cap and properly dispose of the empty delivery device.
10)Rescan the microchip to ensure proper administration. Note: Bio-Thermo readings sufficient for temperature tracking /management will not be attainable until 24-48 hours after microchip administration.
11) Affix the bar code sticker to the animals records and/or retain the code for future reference.

LIFECHIPS STAY WHERE YOU PUT THEM

Glass-enclosed microchips are prone to movement once implanted in the tissue. Destron Fearing has solved this problem with our patented Bio-Bond® process.
Our microchips are encased in an insert micro-capsule made of bio-compatible material
• Bio-Bond enables the animal's tissue to permanently anchor the microchip at the desired anatomical site
• LifeChip stays where it should, for the health your animals and reading convenience

Warranty

Destron/IDI products are warranted against defects in materials and workmanship for one (1) year from date of shipment.

Injection and Scanning Instructions For Llamas and Alpacas

Step 1. Using a Destron/IDI reader, scan the sterile needle assembly in the package to confirm that the ID code of the transponder is the same as that shown on the package bar code labels.
Step 2. Remove the sterilized needle assembly containing the transponder from its package. (Do not remove the protective plastic cover until just before use.)

LifeChip® with Bio-Thermo™ Technology
Step 3 Slide the white sliding bar on the top of the blue injector handle back to the upon position. Seat the rectangular, plastic end of the needle assembly in the top of the injector handle in an upright position, as shown below. Then push the tip of the needle assembly down at a 90 degree angle until the assembly is flush with the top of the handle. Move the white sliding bar forward, securing the needle assembly in place. The needle bevel should face away from the animal, as shown in figure 2.
LifeChip® with Bio-Thermo™ Technology
Step 4. Locate the injection site. For Llamas and Alpacas, the site is located above and in front of the ear on the "poll" of the head.
Step 5. Prepare the injection site as you would for any injection.
Step 6. Just before using the injector, remove the protective cover from the needle.
NOTE: Keep the needle pointed upward as the transponder can easily slide out of the needle.

Step 7. Using your thumb and index finger, pull some loose skin up at the injection site, pinching it lightly. Roll your index finger over your thumb to release some skin. Holding the injector handle as shown below, insert the needle subcutaneously below your thumb. The needle should be inserted all the way up to the hub.
NOTE: Make sure the needle has not gone under the skin and back out of the skin. The entire tip of the needle should be under the skin.
Step 8. Push the white injection knob forward (toward the needle tip) to inject the transponder. Do not begin to withdraw the needle until the injection knob has been pushed all the way forward.
LifeChip® with Bio-Thermo™ Technology
Step 9. Withdraw the needle slowly. You should see the blue-colored drive pin inside the bevel of the needle. If bleeding is observed, apply light pressure to the injection site with your finger.
Step 10. Discard ONLY the needle. You can use the injector handle again.
Step 11. Scan the animal to verify proper transponder functioning.
Step 12. Remove the bar code labels from the front of the needle package. Apply one liable to the registration form.

ISO Standard Microchips
