The World Identifies with AIMS™

Why do researchers choose AIMS™ Lab Animal Tattoo Systems?

AIMS™ equipment, supplies, and services are priced above other tattoo systems that are available from general equipment distributors. However, over the years we have learned that the superior quality of our identification program (not just equipment but supplies and education) offers customers a significant cost savings as they employ the AIMS™ program in their facility. Thus, the higher initial set-up costs are quickly recovered as you use the AIMS™ animal tattoo identification program. The following are some examples of customer cost recovery.

What sets AIMS™ apart from other vendors?

  • AIMS™ equipment is significantly more dependable, easy to operate and easy to clean when compared with non-AIMS™ systems. Thus, you will not waste personnel time keeping your equipment operating. You will always have equipment that works when it is needed.
  • Tattooing with AIMS™ equipment and procedures is quick and easy. Our customers routinely tattoo 100-120 mice per hour with three digits. Efficient tattooing reduces personnel costs.
  • No re-tattooing. Tattoo fading is a major issue with other tattoo units, because of the equipment design and inferior quality inks. Animals tattooed with AIMS™ equipment and supplies have tattoos that are permanent and easy to read for the life of the animal. Thus, you will have lower personnel costs when compared with non-AIMS™ systems since you will not have to re-tattoo animals. Tattoo fading (ID failure) is also unacceptable in labs operating within GLP. Quality tattoos also increase the quality of customer experiments.
  • Understanding how to tattoo properly with the right equipment saves personnel time. There is no guessing with AIMS™. We teach our customers "how to tattoo properly" with the best equipment. This saves personnel time and provides for the humane treatment of animals. Our training program also teaches customers "how to solve problems", should they ever have a performance issue with their tattoos.
  • If you need identification support, AIMS™ is always available and we can save you time and money by providing you access to over 25 years of experience in lab animal identification. If you have a question, concern, or need advice on lab animal tattoo identification, we are always available at no additional cost.
  • AIMS™ animal tattoo techniques and processes are accepted world wide. You will not need to spend excessive time explaining your decision to use another system nor will you have to spend time explaining poor quality or missing tattoos. This reduces employee stress during QA audits and facility inspections.
