Scanning for solutions beyond the bar code

Abstract:
David Forman: You probably haven't eaten them, says Jim Rittenburg, but odds are you've put them in your car.

Taggants – trace amounts of special materials put in products to track them – are being inconspicuously embedded in everything from pharmaceuticals to petroleum products. They are used to combat counterfeiting and theft, to make sure that the pills you buy at the drug store are what they say they are, and that the gasoline for which you pony up the extra bucks really has the additives the station advertises.
