Common Errors From Manual Lab Animal ID Systems like Tattooing and Ear Notching:

  • Administering the wrong treatments
  • Collecting the wrong measurements
  • Compromising study data integrity

Hidden Costs of Manual Lab Animal ID:

  • Compromised study data
  • Extra time spent deciphering and re-measuring
  • Complicated tech training
  • Siloed Data

Compared to using a manual mouse ID system, our animal identification tags provide numerous benefits. Automated barcode scanning of each lab tag is fast and hands-free. It is 100% accurate.

Benefits of Colored Lab Animal Ear Tags

Colored ear tags eliminate the need to interpret IDs and allow lab technicians to visually differentiate cage mates or dosing groups without scanning. Data collection becomes much easier and more cost-effective.

Colored mouse ear tags also allow technicians to identify mice within a cage without disturbing the animals, which can be useful for behavioral studies.

Data collection can also be done without disturbing the mice by using a scannable color-matched card attached to the cage.
