Mobile devices can provide an ideal platform to perform easy and cost-effective product authentication. Using its patented Fingerprint™ technology, the company recently developed an iPhone 4 authentication application capable of performing instant genuine-or-fake authentications of any plastic-molded packaging components and medical parts, such as plastic bottles, syringes and flip-off vial seals, at zero production cost. A genuine-or-fake verification usually takes three seconds, including time to pick up the item and position the iPhone. Working in real-time, the company’s application works at a rate of 10 detections per second, similar to reading a barcode with a laser scanner. The app works flawlessly with any matte plastic parts and allows pharmaceutical manufacturers to multiply the number of verifications along the supply chain worldwide.
