How Can I Track Histology Cassettes?

Posted By RFID Journal, 04.26.2010
Has anyone developed an RFID solution for tracking histology cassettes used for tissue-specimen safekeeping? We use a strong microwave field (1,000 Watts at 2,450 MHz). Are there any producers of microwave-resistant tags?

Matteo,

I am unaware of such as system, though it might be possible to develop a shield that would protect chips from being destroyed by microwaves. However, I doubt tags would function with that much energy around, even if they operated at a different frequency. Still, I'm not an RF engineer, so I will ask our readers: Do such tags exist? If anyone has any information related to this question, please let us know.
