High performance technology and service

Each Tracer Advance microchip is fully encapsulated in a bio-compatible polymer tube and pre-loaded into a disposable implanter, sterilised and individually packed with the adhesive bar-coded labels needed to complete the registration.



10 x stronger, 12% lighter

A study has shown that the Bio-Polymer material, Vectra A53O®, is 10 x stronger under pressure and is 12% lighter than glass. Although reports on microchip breakages are rare, it is a significant scientific development that gives you and your clients extra peace of mind and reassurance.

Online Registration

The online registration system ensures that your clients’ microchip registration information arrives with the Petlog database as quickly as possible.


Each pack contains an online registration instruction leaflet that will guide you through each stage of the registration process. The data is then sent straight to Petlog.


Please ensure you record an email address for your client with Petlog to ensure they receive confirmation of registration as quickly as possible.
