This proximity with veterinarians moved ARDES closer and closer to the breeding world.

From this conclusion, ARDES developed and commercialized its first syringe, by answering successfully to breeders’ and veterinarians’ high expectations.

Thanks to a consistent and growing relationship with breeders and veterinarians, ARDES started, at the end of the 80s, animal identification solutions by collaborating with laboratories and breeders, in order to propose an innovative product, answering users’ needs. It was concluded by the identification range creation in 1987.
