This invisible, non-erasable, digitally traceable marker is used on assets to ensure authenticity and detect counterfeiting. Its unique signature provides serialization by using encryption technology and can only be read by a specific scanner.

This marker has an invisible non-erasable anti-counterfeiting pigment that can be digitally printed or laser engraved on packages, labels or directly on the product. After, it can be scanned and traced at any point throughout the supply chain. It provides serialization and allows distributors and retailers to determine an asset's origin, intended destination, and current location.

The ink has a unique signature profile and can only be applied and registered during the production phase. More importantly, the marker is encrypted and can only be read by specific scanners powered by proprietary software, making counterfeiting even more challenging. This marking system can enable brands and regulators to find counterfeits more efficiently, helping them to identify possible sources of piracy.
