Package and product authentication through nano-scale markers is achieved via the co.'s special readers. A web-based track-and-trace program is maintained where key product data are stored on a server and updated as product moves through the supply chain. Product is marked with a unique “license plate,” which is scanned and attributed to customer shipments. This allows authorized personnel to assure that genuine product gets to its correct destination and that the source of smuggled product is quickly identified. Markers provide yes/no authentication and unique serialization.
