NEO-9 Neonate Rodent Tattooing System

NEO-9 Neonate Rodent Tattooing System

Neonate tattooing made Simple, Quick & EASY!

The AIMS™ NEO-9 Neonate Tattooing System was developed just for tattooing P0 - P15 neonate rodents of any color/strain. This comprehensive tattoo ID kit comes complete with everything you need to tattoo ~2000 neonates.

The detailed training guide provides step-by-step guidance with detailed illustrations of ID schemes with small and large number ranges.

Neonate tattoo identification is a practical and humane alternative to toe clipping. Toe tattoos allow you to use your existing numbering system for toe clipping without removing the toe.
