Avery Dennison, a leading materials science and manufacturing firm, has reportedly announced to have launched new ultrahigh frequency (UHF) radio frequency identification (RFID) inlay label products for healthcare and pharmaceutical sectors. As per trusted sources, the new inlays would be available in two formats including Wet Inlay and Dry Inlay with optimal delivery lead times.
Reportedly, the company has introduced the AD-850m4QT product for applications that require smaller form factor while reading tagged items in the near-field. The product is a new option for smaller form factors and has an antenna size of just 10.33 mm in diameter.
The circular and simple loop design of AD-850m4QT can read up to a 1-meter distance in FCC (920-928 MHz). It features the Monza® 4QT integrated circuit of Impinj with 512-bit user memory which enables users to maintain a private and public data profile for storage of confidential data.
Sources familiar with the development claim that the other product, named AD-810r6, is an ideal solution to tag small to medium-sized medical packages and glass vials. It has a diameter of 18 mm and demonstrates brilliant performance on plastic and glass materials, cite sources.
For the uninitiated, RFID has multiple advantages in several business verticals along the likes of food, apparel, cosmetics, and has been proven to be beneficial in the pharmaceuticals sector as well. Solutions based on RFID could be utilized to drive better outcomes, enhance patient experience, improve accuracy in supply management, eliminate inventory losses, and streamline asset tracking.
For the record, Avery Dennison specializes in the design and production of a wide-range of functional and labeling materials. Apparently, Avery had also formed a partnership with Impinj, a leading provider of RAIN RFID solutions. Reportedly, both the firms had jointly developed a UHF RFID label solution that can be utilized in microwave ovens.
