The occurrence of cross-border illicit trade and seizures of counterfeit goods by authorities continues to rise year on year. As a result authorities across the world have begun to require that individual products can be tracked through the supply chain by printing unique numbers on their packages (serialization). Although this helps manufacturers to know where their products are on a global scale, it does not provide authentication, i.e., there is no proof that the correct product is actually in the correct package.
nano4U has therefore focused on linking measured physical properties of authentic products to their package without any change to the product itself. At high production volumes the costs are therefore much lower than any competing solutions and the security is very high. nano4u’s authentication solutions allow true authentication that can be seamlessly linked into serialisation if required.
