The return signal is received repetitively and without interruption for as long as a continuous interrogation signal is maintained. A HDX Transponder doesn’t have to store energy to be able to return its entire data signal. HDX (half duplex) Read Distance up to100cm (39.37") Antenna & reading system dependent

Combine tagging an animal and taking a tissue sample into one handling activity. Send the tissue sample to a lab to test genetics, and potential disease carrying animals. Z Tags Tissue Range from Datamars
The Z Tags Tissue Range offers two options: a tissue sampler only, and a tissue sampler and tag or a tissue sampler, tag and EID tag combo.
The tissue sampler takes a fast, clean and accurate sample in an easy, low-stress way. The tissue tagger is easy to load and works like any other tag applicator. For the tissue sampler, just squeeze the tagger until you hear two clicks and you’re done.
Unlike blood or hair, tissue samples are robust and longer-lasting. Z Tags also uses a dry desiccant, which allows the sample to last for up to six months without refrigeration. The tissue sample will also be larger, granting the ability to run more tests than a conventional blood or hair sample.
