Core2Scan® RFID Tags

Core2Scan® RFID Tags

An RFID system allows any authorized user to view where any encoded RFID tag is located within the range of the readers. Such users can be logged in remotely and have the ability to see any  tagged asset directly from their computer screen through the Core2Scan® software. That means once installed, end users can see not only the tags they affixed, but other RFID tags that the end user may have had suppliers affix.

RFID has been a proven technology for many years among numerous industries worldwide, including GMP/GLP operations. However, its value has just recently been enhanced with the development of the Core2Scan® System. While RFID can track an asset, VAI’s patented technology has enhanced the ability of the tracking of multiple assets simultaneously. This allows for not only one asset to be tracked but multiple assets, in conjunction with each other, to be grouped and tracked together. This provides the ability to discern potential process and contamination control investigative scenarios in a more systematic manner. By tracking and reporting the past and present locations of assets, the investigative GMP/GLP professional now has a powerful tool to reduce the scope of investigations to a smaller subset, thus reducing the expensive and time-consuming cost associated with conducting investigations. It can also serve as digital records to compounding operations and confirm appropriate receipt by a patient in personalized medicines.
