Manufactured by Trovan in Europe, AKC Reunite 134.2 kHz/ISO/International microchips are seamless, 100% bioglass encapsulated transponders with no plastic parts. This seamless design helps ensure the lifetime integrity of the microchip. Our all-in-one syringe delivery device also features medical-grade needles that are arguably the sharpest in the industry.
AKC Reunite microchips have a greenish tint because they are manufactured with bioglass.
If a microchip is made of clear material or a polymer, it is NOT bioglass! Microchips made from different plastic parts, including sheaths, that are melted together run the risk of leaking. Moisture or any leakage can lead to microchip failure in the future.
A microchip with clear glass is not made with bioglass. Instead of laser sealing the capsule, the entire transponder is heated during the sealing process. Overheating the electronic transponder can impact the longevity of the microchip. There's also a likelihood clear glass contains lead. Yes, lead.
ISO compliant vs. ISO compatible? There is a difference.
INDIGO ISO+ PET MICROCHIPS
Stringent, ISO compliant, quality control manufacturing process that ensures AKC Reunite microchip ID numbers are unique and will not be duplicated. Many manufacturers instead offer ISO compatible microchips. ISO Compatible microchips are not required to follow stringent production standards or uniqueness of ID numbers. Oftentimes these microchips are manufactured in China.
“When enrolling Boots’ microchip, we transposed two of the numbers. Thank goodness AKC Reunite recognized the mistake. If they had not, we would never be reunited with our lost dog if her microchip was scanned because we originally submitted the wrong number!”
The QuickScan 650 is perfect for occasional microchip scanning in the field and reads all pet microchips sold in the US. The scanner’s handy size fits right in your pocket, making it a great tool to spot-check pets. It also comes equipped with a detachable belt clip.

We are excited to introduce this technology to the companion animal market for specific pet identification applications.
ALL ABOUT THE INDI
Because indi mini-chips are only 8mm long, they have a smaller antenna than a traditional 12mm microchip – and a smaller 15 gauge implantation needle. By nature, the smaller antenna has a somewhat shorter read range than a standard-sized microchip. Since the scanner has to be closer to the pet to detect and read a minichip, please consider the following before choosing any minichip:
To ensure a microchip is readable for the life of the pet, it is critically important to consider the adult characteristics of the pet when choosing a microchip for a puppy or kitten.
The indi minichip is ideal for smooth coated, thinner skinned dogs and cats, birds, guinea pigs, ferrets, etc.
This product is NOT recommended for horses, pets with dense or long coats, pets with thick folds of skin or in pets with a potential to become obese.
AKC Reunite microchips are available with or without prepaid enrollments,
which means we can tailor a microchipping program to best meet your budget and needs.
PREPAID MICROCHIP PROGRAM
Microchips sold with prepaid enrollments are a no-hassle option that offers you and the pet owner a tremendous value. You do not have to track microchip enrollments and there is no additional charge when enrolling the microchip for as long as you own your pet.
Prepaid microchips are the program of choice by many veterinarians, animal shelters and rescue organizations.
FREE MICROCHIP PROGRAM
For every microchip enrolled in the AKC Reunite recovery service and the standard enrollment fee paid, an Enrollment Reward point is earned toward select microchipping products. For example, 25 points can be redeemed for a free 25-count box of microchips or a QuickScan 650!
This is the program of choice for TNR and responsible breeders. Points can also be earned with other brands of microchips, like HomeAgain®, when you enroll online with your PIN Code. Contact your Sales Consultant for more information.
