Tracking samples across the stock

A classic laboratory problem, especially for high-throughput facilities, is in identifying where samples and/or standards are and proving where they have been stored. It is easy to have records stating what temperature a specific fridge or freezer is, but being able to categorically state that a specific sample has been stored within a specific location has historically not been possible when using technology such as bar coding. Using RFID technology it is possible to locate all samples within your facility even down to what shelf with a fridge for example and to track their movements within a datafile that can be easily interpreted by your LIMS system or a customized software package.

Providing an authentication record

The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that nearly 10% of the drugs in the European Union and up to 50% worldwide are counterfeit. Electronic pedigree is an electronically signed document that certifies both the origin and the chain of custody of a drug. According to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Radio-frequency Identification (RFID) is one of the most reliable track-and-trace technologies for providing an accurate pedigree—or help secure record of origin—for chemicals and pharmaceuticals. The EPC code stored in the RFID tags acts as an electronic pedigree that ensures pharmaceuticals are manufactured and distributed under safe conditions, without tampering and without counterfeit drugs being introduced into the supply chain. With an electronic pedigree, our customers are able to provide a reliable and cost-effective record of authenticity to its distributors.
