Radiation Resistant RFID Tracking Labels for Medical Industry

 

February 8, 2013

Radio frequency identification (RFID) labels for the medical industry are specially designed to withstand the radiation processes commonly used to sterilize medical devices, equipment and supplies. Unlike standard RFID products that lose their memory content when exposed to radiation, Identive's new radiation-resistant labels enable critical identification, usage and tracking information to reside on medical components and storage containers throughout their useful lives.

RFID technology offers superior convenience and performance to many other identification technologies, such as barcodes, but is just beginning to be adopted for medical applications. RFID labels are resistant to radiation, offer read/write functionality and have a memory capacity of up to 256 bytes. Compliance with ISO 15693, ISO 18000-3 and EPCglobal(R) standards ensures compatibility with common RFID reader devices worldwide.
