RFID technology is ideally suited to build or upgrade custom test arenas with animal identification or localization functions.
Phenosys’ IDspyder is a ready to use package which allows adding position or individual tracking to an existing arena. RFID tagged animals are reliably detected and tracked through time and space by the provided IDsensors. The PhenoSoft Control software logs all detections events for later analysis into an accessible data file.
Radio-frequency identification (RFID) technology identifies and tracks individuals within a group of animals. All animals need to carry subcutaneous transponders. These transponders require no battery and are powered by the electro-magnetic fields emitted by the RFID-Readers.
An IDspyder setup consists of the following:
IDspyder with eight flat mount readers
Installation example – here two ring antennas allow to track also the passage direction
