Universal Radio-frequency Identification (RFID) Reader


The Pocket Reader series offers two durable and versatile radio-frequency identification (RFID) reader models that are ideal for companion animal veterinary practices, pet rescue shelters, and low-volume manual scanning operations. Additionally, they can serve as effective back-ups for large automated systems.

The pocket reader also has the added value ability to scan Bio-Thermo Technology enabled microchips to provide body temperature readings quickly and conveniently, a feature patented by Destron Fearing.
