Preparing the markers at Dunnington

Abstract:
In 2003, Biocode merged with a Dallas-based company to form Authentix - the global leader in product authenticationwhich employs around 35 staff at its premises at Chessingham Park, Dunnington. Since then, Tim's activities as director, international commerce, at Authentix appear to have gone from strength to strength.

The company retains links with the university, not least through a relationship with the Department of Chemistry, which won the Best Knowledge Transfer Partnership Programme Award, sponsored by the Department of Trade and Industry last year. The research was focused on developing nanotechnology-based applications to prevent fuel smuggling and adulteration. The beauty of the Authentix system is that its invisible markers can be added to potentially counterfeited products and then identified at any point along the supply chain by a quick and simple-to-use test.
