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.
