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

This marker has an invisible anti-counterfeiting pigment that can be digitally scanned and traced at any point throughout the supply chain. It allows distributors and eventually retailers to determine an asset's origin, its intended destination, and its current position. 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 harder. This marking system can enable brands and regulators to find counterfeits more easily, helping them to identify possible sources of piracy.
