EMERYVILLE, CALIFORNIA ─ September 10, 2018 — TruTag Technologies, a leading security and technology solution provider, today announced that it has received the 2018 “Best for Pharmaceutical Brand Protection” award from Global Health & Pharma (GHP), a global information sharing platform and a multi-disciplinary members community established to enhance communication networks and collaboration across all themes and disciples within three main categories: human, animal and environmental health.
GHP Magazine is the go-to resource for more than 260,000 wellness professionals and healthcare-related suppliers across four continents. The GHP award is dedicated to uncovering and featuring talented, courageous and innovative people, departments and firms pushing the boundaries of what is possible in the medical world and recognizes all levels and all aspects of the healthcare and pharmaceutical sectors.
TruTag Technologies offers a range of on-product and on-package security solutions that provide manufacturers and government regulators with an effective means of securing supply chains and safeguarding consumers. The company has developed a product security solution based on precision-fabricated nano-porous silica micro-particles known as “TruTags®”, together with cutting-edge detection hardware for a variety of applications.
TruTags are covert, can be encoded with highly-secure optical codes and are made of high-purity silica, a material commonly found in food and medicine and affirmed as “generally recognized as safe” by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. These microtags are perfectly engineered to serve as “crypto-anchors” by becoming part of the very fabric of a product, such as when they are mixed into the film coating of a tablet, and connecting physical items to a secure blockchain-based supply chain system via its covert optical code. TruTags can also be embedded into standard adhesive laminate film stock for easy adoption in label, document, and packaging applications.
“To receive the Best for Pharmaceutical Brand Protection award is a true testament to the game-changing nature of the TruTag technology in life-critical industries that rely on the authenticity of the product,” said Michael Bartholomeusz, PhD, Chief Executive Officer of TruTag Technologies. “Global supply chains are extremely complex and are in dire need of advanced blockchain platforms that hook into the physical world via a secure and efficient ‘crypto-anchor’ like our edible microtags. Our TruTags are connecting high-volume, modest cost, life-critical products to the digital back-end of the blockchain for next-generation security and traceability.”
