TruTag Technologies to Exhibit in 2017 BIO International Convention

TruTag to showcase its on-dose product quality and authentication solution

EMERYVILLE, CALIFORNIA ─ June 15, 2017 — TruTag Technologies, a leading security and technology solution provider, announced today that it will exhibit in the BIO International Convention, June 19-22, in San Diego, California in the Hawaii Life Sciences booth #743. Barry McDonogh, senior vice president of business development will be present to showcase TruTag’s custom on-product high-security solution.

The BIO International Convention is hosted by the Biotechnology Innovation Organization (BIO) representing more than 1,100 biotechnology companies, academics institutions, state biotechnology centers and related organizations across the United States and in more than 30 other nations. BIO members are involved in the research and development of innovative healthcare, agriculture, industrial and environmental biotechnology products.

The Hawaii Life Sciences booth is sponsored by the State of Hawaii’s Department of Business, Economic, Development and Tourism’s Business Development and Support Division (BDSD). BDSM promotes industry development and economic diversification by supporting existing and emerging industries in Hawaii and by attracting new investment and businesses to the state.

TruTag Technologies is a pioneer in brand protection, having developed a customizable, high-security solution that provides absolute certainty of a product’s identity and enable unparalleled product diagnostics to combat counterfeiting and unauthorized diversion. TruTag has introduced an advanced microparticle made of silicon dioxide (SiO2), a well-known ingredient that has been used in food and medicine for decades and has been affirmed as “generally recognized as safe” or “GRAS” by the United States Food and Drug Administration.

These TruTag microtags (“TruTags®”) can be safely added to most solid oral dosage form (SODF) drugs without modifying the manufacturing process already in place. Once included in the medicine itself, the tags can last indefinitely through the product’s lifecycle and can be scanned using one of TruTag’s high-performance and portable handheld reader. The TruTag platform is highly secure because it uses a proprietary and patented process for uniquely encoding signatures into these silica particles.

I’m excited to share with the industry TruTag’s on-dose authentication solution that provides immediate and absolute product identity information that no other solution can offer,” said Mr. McDonogh. “We will be demonstrating the TruTag on-dose security solution with our portable handheld reader, which is capable of reading pills of any size, shape or color, and can reveal custom product intelligence such as dosage, plant, manufacturing line, and even batch.”
