The Aramis Laboratory Animal Microtattoo System is a quick, efficient and affordable method of permanently identifying laboratory animals (particularly mice and rats as early as 1 day old).
Designed and tested by laboratory animal technicians, the system utilizes a hypodermic needle at one end of a stainless steel forcep and a small metal cup containing Ketchum Green Tattoo Paste at the other side of the forcep. By squeezing the forcep together, the needle penetrates the toe/foot pad, ear or tail of the animal and injects a deposit of green paste.
The Aramis Microtattoo System includes:
- 2 Hypodermic Needles
- 1 Plated Steel Microtattoo Forceps
- 1 oz. of Green Tattoo Paste
- 1 Aluminum Planchette
- 1 Storage Case
The needle penetrates the ear, footpad or toe of the animal by squeezing the forceps and injects injecting green tattoo paste into the animal. Using a grid location pattern allows you to use a numbering system that extends over 1 million.
The microtattoo system is safe and humane and is in compliance with regulatory agencies for use on laboratory animals. Instructions are included.
Use 20 gauge needle for adults and 30 gauge for pups.
