Flawless delivery of key components for product protection packaging

Over the years, Microtrace has identified common pitfalls in the implementation of technologies for product authentication—and it usually comes down to there being a weak link in the process causing what could otherwise be a very secure system to be one that is easily compromised. That’s why Microtrace has developed the Summit Authentication Platform—eliminating system weakness by bringing together our deep expertise in the core competencies of a fully optimized turn-key security solution:

Anatomy of a secure solution

Drawing on this experience in chemistry and material sciences, application engineering, and detectors and analytics, Microtrace knows the best authentication results are achieved with an integrated and optimized active packaging platform.

Microtrace’s recommended anti-counterfeit packaging configuration uses a proprietary, two-part authentication unique identifier, including a taggant and encrypted data string. The unique identifier is read with a detection system that includes a handheld spectrometer and mobile application. The taggant and data stringdata is processed using sophisticated AI and analytical methodologies, which produce real-time brand reporting that provides unparalleled insight on where and how your products are being used—or counterfeited.
