Animal Identification & Marking Systems
AIMS™ (Animal Identification and Marking Systems, Inc.) was founded in 1979 by Dr. Harold Yacowitz and Ann Yacowitz. Dr. Yacowitz determined that a better method was needed for the identification of research animals. Thus, in the late 1970’s Dr. Yacowitz developed the AIMS™ method of animal tattoo identification. Today, AIMS™ methods and procedures for animal tattoo identification continues to provide researchers with an easy, cost-effective method for permanent identification of laboratory animals. The AIMS™ system can be used to identify animals as small as day-old mice and as large as full-grown horses. AIMS™ is the only company that offers custom tattoo equipment and hands-on training to research facilities.
