What is a Halo ?

When is a microchip scanner more than "just another microchip scanner" ?

We all know that a Halo is a little ring that sits above an angels head, but the Halo that we are talking about is a wonderful little high tech device that is the brains on the Scanner Angel concept.

As many people would know, when a pet is micro-chipped the "chip" is hidden under the animals skin and it can only be read with a microchip scanner (sometimes, they are also called a microchip "reader")

Up until now, microchip scanners have been quite expensive costing several hundred dollars to buy. Due to this expense, many small animal welfare and animal rescue groups were not in a position to buy one but now the Halo has made it a lot more affordable for them.

"Conventional" scanners also do a great job in reading microchip numbers but reading this number alone is not enough information to help with re-uniting a lost pet as someone needs to access one of the thousands of databases located around the world to track down the owner's information.


This is where the Halo, stands out on it's own, because not only will it read the microchip, it will also tell the user immediately if the pet that is being scanned has been reported as missing on Scanner Angel.

Not only is the halo the first scanner in the world to be enabled for Scanner Angel, it is virtually the the cheapest microchip scanner that you will find anywhere.

If you have been thinking about buying a microchip scanner but have not been able to afford it,

we are sure that the price of the Halo will change your mind.

Look at some of the other features that are packed into this amazing little device:

*  Reads all ISO Standard FDX-B and many FDX-A Microchips
       (Will NOT read Trovan "Unique" or AVID Encrypted Microchips)


           * The Australian Veterinary Association's "Protocol for Electonic Identification

              of Animals", states that all Microchips used in Australia for companion animals 

              after December 31, 2001 should comply with the ISO (FDX/B) Standard.

Normally, microchip scanners such as the Halo, will detect and display an animal's microchip number

If the animal being scanned has been reported as missing to Scanner Angel,

the Halo will also tell you who should

be contacted so that the animal can be

quickly reunited with it's owners.
