Supply Chain Management: Foiling Fakes
Another technology said to be available soon to pharmaceutical firms is a nanotechnology encryption solution offered by NanoInk Inc. CEO Cedric Loiret-Bernal says the technology allows pharmaceutical manufacturers to encrypt their products beyond the bottle level down to the individual tablet level. The tablet-level identification is important, he explains, because legitimate U.S. drug distributors repackage products.
The encryption, he says, can identify when and where the product was manufactured, which market the product is destined for, and the expiration date. "That's the minimum we can deliver on each tablet," he says. Plus, the technology is not visible to the naked eye. "Covert and forensic," is how Loiret-Bernal describes it.
