I have an array of 48 small reagent bottles, and I’d like to tag each one so that I can know which bottles are at which locations. Is there a reasonable RFID solution that could accomplish this?
It’s likely that an HID Global solution used to track samples at cryogenic storage facilities would work for your needs. The tags are small and durable, and the reader can identify each vial’s location. There were other solutions available on the market, but some of the companies that offered them are no longer in business. Here are some stories we’ve published that might prove useful to you:
• New RFID Tag With More Memory
• Putting Tags on Test Tubes
• Calif. Startup Develops RFID-enabled Products to Track Medical Tests
• Can Very Small Items Be Tagged?
• Operational Efficiency: Using RFID to Eliminate Errors
• RFID-enabled Locks Secure Bags of Blood
• Labs Use Tags for Cold Storage
• NFC May Bring Efficiency, Accountability to Laboratories
I hope this helps, and that we’ll see you at RFID Journal LIVE! 2020 in September.
