Rapid On-Product Traceability

Trace the Product, Not the Packaging
The miniDART™ is the most cost-effective, scalable on-product traceability solution for fresh produce, bulk goods, and pharmaceutical and nutraceutical products. It uses unique edible, invisible DNA-based barcodes (FDA-GRAS) that are applied directly to the product and can be read by a downstream purchaser with a rapid, inexpensive, on-site test to verify product source and authenticity in 25 minutes.

With the miniDART, food, pharmaceutical, and nutraceutical processors and manufacturers 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.

See how the miniDART closes the gap between product and package in the pharmaceutical and nutraceutical industries.
