Do you know of any companies that offer slides with transponders already embedded?
I am unaware of any company that makes microscope slides with embedded RFID transponders, or even transponders that are designed to be affixed to such slides. That being said, it would not be difficult to create tags that would work for this application. You would need to approach a firm such as Avery Dennison, Smartrac, Invengo or SML, or perhaps some other sophisticated RFID inlay provider. However, it might not be cost-effective if you were only buying the tags in small volumes. If any of our readers know of any businesses that offer such tags, they are invited to provide information below.
