(FILES) This 10 May 2002 file photo show

BOCA RATON, UNITED STATES: (FILES) This 10 May 2002 file photo shows the VeriChip, a product of Applied Digital Solutions, Inc. VeriChip, the world's first implantable radio frequency ID microchip for human use, has been cleared for medical use in the United States by the FDA, (Food and Drug Administration) the company said 13 October, 2004. The system consists of an implantable microtransponder, an inserter, a proprietary hand-held scanner, and secure database containing patient-approved health-care information. About the size of a grain of rice, VeriChip is inserted under the skin in a brief outpatient procedure. Once in, it cannot be seen by the human eye. To read what is in the Veri Chip, a unique 16-digit verification number must be scanned by a company instrument. The captured number in turn links to a database via encrypted Internet access. The health-care information or history stored on the chip can then be read by a doctor, nurse, paramedic or police officer.
