TruTag Demonstrates the Benefits of Extracting Product Intelligence from SODF Drug Products at ExcipientFest Americas

TruTag to exhibit its on-dose authentication technology solution that can extract and analyze business intelligence directly from the drug product

EMERYVILLE, CALIFORNIA ─ April 20, 2016 — TruTag will feature its latest authentication technology solution to combat unauthorized diversion and counterfeiting at this year’s ExcipientFest Americas Conference, April 26-27, in Baltimore, Maryland. The TruTag® platform that identifies and secures SODF drug products will be the focal point of the exhibit.

“Today, pharmaceutical companies are faced with heightened cases of counterfeiting and diversion resulting in lost revenue and increased costs and liabilities,” said Kent Mansfield, President of TruTag Technologies. “To help offset these challenges, TruTag provides a reliable and cost-effective solution featuring optically encoded microtags that can contain custom information such as product, dosage, plant, manufacturing line, and even batch. At ExcipientFest, TruTag will demonstrate how a pill can be scanned and immediately have its authenticity confirmed with other customized product intelligence, helping pharmaceutical companies maintain the integrity of their drug supplies.”

Displayed on the ExcipientFest show floor will be TruTag’s Model 3200, a high-performance and portable Pharmaceutical Pill Detector capable of reading pills of any size, shape or color marked with TruTag microtags (“TruTags®”). TruTags are made of silicon dioxide, or silica which are secure, covert and edible—silica has been affirmed as “generally recognized as safe,” or GRAS by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

TruTags can be applied to a tablet’s coating, requiring little to no manufacturing changes, and can be verified at any point during distribution. TruTag’s optical detector can confirm the genealogy of the product without needing to send it back to a central laboratory for verification. Additional information will be available at TruTag’s booth (#9).
