Avery Dennison, Schreiner MediPharm, PragmatIC on NFC Technology

 

State-of-the-art NFC technology has a lot to offer in smart packaging applications, it can be used for tamper evidence, secure authentication, end-to-end traceability, and easy re-ordering. In the case of pharmaceutical products it can also connect the patient to, not only easy-to-read instructions, but also video/audio guides, help lines, social media support groups and even to their doctor or clinician. Previously, this functionality was restricted to high-value (or high-risk) products due to the cost of traditional NFC inlays and their Integrated Circuits (ICs or “chips”). Now, thanks to the joint effort of Schreiner MediPharm, PragmatIC, and Avery Dennison, these options can be embedded in cost-sensitive, everyday healthcare and pharmaceutical products.
