eAgile Awarded Patent for RFID Intelligent Packaging Breakthrough
Grand Rapids, MI – August 6, 2014 eAgile Inc., a global leader in radio frequency identification (RFID) technologies, announced today that the U.S. Patent Office has granted a patent for the company’s eSeal™ RFID-enabled packaging solution. The eSeal solution solves many of the underlying concerns surrounding the nearly one trillion containers consumed annually by the medical, cosmetics, food and beverage industries. These industries require visibility throughout the distribution process to combat counterfeiting and product tampering.
“Our team has created a breakthrough solution to secure the supply chain, ” stated Gary Burns, CEO of eAgile Inc. ”The demand for intelligent packaging continues to rise, especially in the pharmaceutical and over-the-counter (OTC) drug markets. Consumers and governments are demanding proof of safe and authentic products. Our RFID-enabled caps and shrink seals allow manufacturers to achieve compliance while protecting the integrity of their brand.”
eSeal customers can expect to gain the following benefits:
- Security eSeal verifies the contents of sealed containers and cartons to ensure the product is genuine, not part of a recall, within the expiration date and has not been tampered with.
- Visibility Every eSeal tagged item bears its own secure and unique ID for e-pedigree or regulatory compliance and can be individually tracked throughout distribution with a location and time/date stamp.
- Simplification eSeal closures and shrink seals are designed to replace current packaging and can be introduced with minimal disruption.
“We now have a complete end-to-end solution that also secures the chain of custody from manufacturer to customer,” stated Peter Phaneuf, president of eAgile Inc. “We are pleased to have developed a solution that is beneficial on so many levels. As RFID devices become more prevalent, product-specific safety information will be provided directly to consumers at the point of purchase, in real time, using their smartphones.”
