Smart Products: Smart System Uses RFID to Authenticate Medications

  • TAGS

Integrated Line Technologies (ILT), a provider of caps for vials, pharmaceutical bottles and test tubes, is using RFID technology in a version of its products that will enable customers to read built-in RFID tags on cap liners and thereby prove that an item is authentic, as well as create and track an electronic history of the product inside a container. The firm uses EPC ultrahigh-frequency (UHF) passive RFID tags built into the cap liners and in well mats (rubber mats with recesses to store fluids or other contents), as well as a software-as-a-service hosted server that users can access to learn data about a tag and the specific vial linked to it. Learn how the system is efficiently identifying each vial, as well as what is in it and its history, and how it ensures that a medication or other product is not counterfeit.
