San Ramon, California (EastBayDaily) — rfXcel Corporation, the leading provider of production-proven ePedigree and Track & Trace Systems, today announced the introduction of a new application that gives the power of product authentication to care-givers in the field. Users can quickly determine if the product is authentic, commissioned, or even recalled by simply scanning the bar code on the package using their mobile device. Transaction history, as well as the chain of custody information, is also displayed. More detailed information on the pharmaceutical product can be accessed directly through the rfXcel Traceability System (rTS).
“We are excited about this new Mobile Authentication Application because it enables anyone with a smartphone or tablet to authenticate, and view the transaction history of, pharmaceutical products” said Jack Tarkoff, VP at rfXcel. “Giving access to rfXcel’s Traceability System through mobile devices makes it even easier to ensure patient safety, while providing real-time information at the touch of a button.”
The Mobile Authentication Application runs on mobile devices using either the Android or iOS operating systems. This application allows the user to scan the product bar code using their mobile device’s camera. Bar codes that are linear, 2D or 3D can be scanned. In addition, if the mobile device is equipped with Near Field Communication (NFC), it will be able to read an RFID tag using this application.
Each view provides transaction history and chain of custody information. Currently three views of a product’s authentication report are accessible using a mobile device:
1. Authentic Product – Track & Trace report indicating product is authentic. 2. Recalled Product – Track & Trace report indicating product has been recalled by the manufacturer. 3. Product Not Found – Track & Trace report indicating product is not found in manufacturer’s database and is possibly not genuine.
