Rapid On-Product Traceability


The miniDART® solution is the most cost-effective, scalable on-product traceability solution for pharmaceutical and food products. It uses unique edible, invisible DNA-based tags (FDA-GRAS) that are applied directly to the product and can be read by a downstream partner with a rapid, inexpensive, on-site test to verify product source and authenticity in 25 minutes.

Applications for Product Security

With miniDART, pharmaceutical and food manufacturers and processors will meet and exceed the performance of conventional packaging and requirements of the FDA’s New Era of Smarter Food Safety initiative and the Drug Supply Chain Security Act (DSCSA).

The result is unsurpassed supply chain security, brand protection, and product safety. The miniDART solution delivers on-product authentication with DNA tags that leverage GS1 identifiers.
