UnitVisID Benefits

For Inlay Manufacturers


Inlay Manufacturers

Growth in RFID-enabled unit-of-use medications, driven by the incredible rise in UnitVisID Certified tags (more than 210 million to date), has made it clear that pharmaceuticals are a primary area of expansion for makers of inlays. As this adoption accelerates, the variety of specific inlay designs required to meet the needs of the industry will expand as well. With more variety in shape and materials, and the built-in complications of liquids and foils in the read environment, pharmaceutical products are not well-suited to the tremendous variety of retail-focused tags on the market today. Modern medication tracking requires the latest technology in silicon and antenna design to power cutting edge pharmacy systems. Inlay manufacturers need the resources of the UnitVisID Alliance to ensure their products are keeping up with advances in pharmacy technology.

UnitVisID offers access to independent 3rd party testing facilities and procedures for new designs.

We also provide a Matching Service to determine what sizes, shapes and materials of medication containers are well-suited for each particular design.
