We at Swiftag systems are designing a novel RFID ear tagging and animal tracking system. This system will streamline lab animal inventory, decrease errors in animal tracking, and improve efficiency to reduce the time it takes to get a drug from research to market.

Additional Questions

Who is your customer?

Industry and academic animal laboratories.

What problem does this idea/product solve or what market need does it serve?

The current tracking is archaic and uses bar codes, tattoos, or metal tags. This system is cost-effective, improves efficiency with advanced technology, and is easily integrated into available animal tracking software.

What attributes will make this idea/product successful? Why do you believe that those features will create success?

We are selling the tags and system at an affordable price that is cheaper than the current bar code system. The system improves on the technology by not requiring line of site reading. It also integrated RFID using direct data entry into the software system thereby diminishing potential errors.

Explain how you (your team) will execute to make this idea/product successful? What gives you (your team) an advantage over others already in the market or new to this market?

We are currently in beta testing of the initial prototype. We have a strong team of scientists, engineers, and business executives to help take the product to market. We will be the premier company in the field offering a superior product to what is available.
