This presentation will explore the latest developments about the world’s first completely automated RFID test system for the unit- and case-level serialization of pharmaceuticals. Researchers at the University of South Florida’s RFID Lab for Applied Research designed a closed-loop conveyor system that requires no human supervision to accurately simulate the actual packaging line’s product separation and flow speed. The system also includes a modular and adaptable RFID station that can be modified based on an individual company’s requirements. Uniquely developed test software has the capability of cycling through and analyzing the complete range of parameters for the most commonly used RFID standards, such as Electronic Product Code (EPC) Class 1 Gen 2. Hear the results of a comprehensive return-on-investment (ROI) study, undertaken to create a well-defined roadmap for cost analysis for both the pharmaceutical and perishable industries.
