USDA Approves Digital Angel's RFID Chip for Equine Use in National Animal Identification System

Over on Stock Insight they are thrilled with this news but all they care about is money. This is a crying shame and should scare every American. I know it scares me.

Revelation 13:16-17: And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

Company's Microchip First of Its Kind to Be Approved for NAIS

Potential Market of More Than Five Million Horses Used in Competition

SOUTH ST. PAUL, Minn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Digital Angel Corporation (AMEX:DOC - News), an advanced technology company in the field of rapid and accurate identification, location tracking and condition monitoring of high-value assets, announced today that the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) approved the Company's LifeChip® equine radio frequency identification (RFID) injectable transponder for use as part of the National Animal Identification System (NAIS). The USDA made the announcement at the Ag ID Info Expo held last week in Kansas City, Mo.

"We are very proud our LifeChip microchip is the first of its kind to receive NAIS approval," said Rae Powell, vice president of sales and marketing for Destron Fearing(TM), Digital Angel's animal applications business. "We believe this is another important step forward for our Company as the U.S. moves closer to establishing a national animal identification system.

"Not only does our LifeChip fulfill all U.S. animal safety standards, it also complies on a global platform with the International Organization of Standardization (ISO). Furthermore, our LifeChip with Bio-Thermo® temperature-sensing technology differentiates our product from the competition."

The exclusive Bio-Thermo feature allows equine owners, breeders, trainers and veterinarians to quickly and safely check a horse's temperature at the site of administration. Each LifeChip microchip - about the size of a grain of rice - contains a passive transponder programmed with a unique 15-digit number that can be read by any ISO-compliant reader.

Once administered, microchip numbers can be recorded in breed and discipline registries or kept in farm and ranch files for future reference. They are invaluable in providing proof of ownership in the event that a horse is lost or stolen. They also can be used to identify horses involved in breeding operations, competitive sports, and international and domestic travel.

Paramount in gaining NAIS approval is the exclusive use of a patented, biocompatible material called BioBond® that eliminates potential migration and secures the microchip to the administration site. LifeChip microchips offer an unalterable means of identifying horses and ponies of all ages, breeds and sizes.
