Counterfeit drugs may soon become easier to recognize with the development of an edible barcode fom TruTag Technologies.
The microtag is made from silica, which is found in many foods, and is about the size of a dust particle and not as wide as a human hair. Each tag is equipped with a unique code that can be scanned using TruTag’s proprietary instruments, ensuring the drug is genuine and not counterfeit.
It is estimated that 10 percent of all medicines are counterfeit, which puts lives in dangers and undermines the pharmaceutical industry.
