In this project the application of radio frequency identification (RFID) has been tested as an electronic authenticity certificate for pharmaceutical packaging along the pharmaceutical supply chain. The project focuses on the one hand on the assurance of the supply chain to protect against plagiarism and on the other hand on the production of an electronically secured packaging.

Publications about the project

This paper presents the application of radio frequency identification (RFID) as an electronic authenticity certificate for pharmaceutical packaging along the pharmaceutical supply chain. It focuses on the one hand on the assurance of the supply chain to protect against plagiarism and on the other hand on the production of an electronically secured packaging. In order to realize a secured packaging, a RFID-transponder is integrated in the folded box. The data saved on the RFID-chip is inseparably connected with the folded box.
