The xEMi injector assembly contains a 2x12mm 125kHz ATA5577 based xEM tag, pre-programmed as an EM4200 compatible tag. The xEM tag is encased in biologically safe Schott 8625 bioglass and pre-loaded into a sterile injection assembly. Many low cost OEM and commercial 125khz RFID readers are capable of reading this tag.

Because the xEM tag comes pre-loaded inside the injection syringe, you cannot test the tag before it is ejected from the syringe. Because of this, we performed a read test on every single xEM tag before it was inserted into the injector assembly and sterilized.
Passive RFID and NFC tags are magnetically coupled devices that pass power and data over a shared magnetic field. This means their effective read range depends on how well both of the antenna coils in the tag and reader couple with each other. This typically means the shape, size, and orientation of both antennas must be complimentary. Unfortunately, most reader devices, including mobile phones, typically have antennas designed with thin flexible PCB traces made into blocky rectangular shapes that lay along a flat plane. These antenna designs are great for coupling with and reading large flat label tags or card style tags and access cards, but they have a hard time coupling to the very small cylindrically shaped antenna coil inside our implantable tags. Most commercial readers and access control devices have a “sweet spot” that must be located and used each time to get consistent reads. Please do not expect your xEM tag to achieve the same read range that you normally get with a label tag or access card. For examples of this, please check out the following video posts; reading with USB device, and reading with a mobile device.
