This FAQ deals only with microchip units, referred to herein as "individual microchip devices," which can be used to store, record, or transmit information uniquely associated with an individual item, animal, or human. Generally, these fall under the classification of "Radio Frequency Identification" (RFID) and "Electronic Article Surveillance" (EAS) devices.
There are basically three categories of individual microchip RFID/EAS devices available today; they are: 1) implantable microchip capsules which are either injected or surgically imbedded subdermally for permanent applications; 2) insertable microchip capsules which may be introduced into body cavities or swallowed for temporary requirements; and, 3) attachable devices that can be either worn, carried, or attached to an individual or item for applications where only intermittent use is needed.
