I’ve seen a lot of comments about this glass tag being implanted, but nobody has pointed out that no research has been done to verify that the glass, epoxy, and copper wire resin are all made of biosafe materials. Industrial glass can contain lead, aluminum, and other nasty stuff that will slowly leach from the glass. Non-biosafe epoxy resin can contain high levels of VOCs and other nasty stuff that will be released if the glass casing ever breaks.
www.dangerousthings.com sells tags that have been manufactured using biosafe materials and are sold pre-sterilized. Some are even pre-loaded into injection assemblies. There are also guides on how to properly place and implant their glass tags, and they are working on building a partner network of professional piercers who can perform the implantation. If you’re here to consider implanting one of these tags, consider getting something actually designed for implantation.
No public wish lists :(
