The TruTag Platform

We help our clients develop innovative, cost-effective and practical solutions using TruTag microtags (“TruTags®”) made of silicon dioxide, or silica, which are:

  • Safe
  • Covert
  • Edible: silica is “generally recognized as safe” (GRAS) by the US FDA
  • Resilient: TruTags lasts for the entire product lifetime
  • Customizable: TruTags can mark items with unique information for product verification and traceability

TruTag’s authentication technology features unique optical signatures that are manufactured into the microtags without the use of additional additives or markers. As such, the highly versatile tags can be added to coatings, applied to the exterior of products and edible goods, or added to ingredients such as powders. TruTags will last indefinitely through the product’s lifecycle and can be read by TruTag’s optical reader. The TruTag approach includes an ability to code by product, dosage, plant, manufacturing line, and even batch.

This technology-enabled approach gives pharmaceutical companies the power to scan a pill found anywhere in the world and immediately confirm its authenticity, place and date of manufacture, lot number, and other product intelligence directly from the dosage form itself, without ever needing the product packaging. 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 reader can confirm the genealogy of the product without needing to send it back to a central laboratory for verification.

TruTag’s variability in code management gives you the business information tool you need to prevent lost revenue, reduce costs and liabilities, and protect your brand.
