Using RFID to Establish a Secure Blood Supply Chain

Breakout Session
Intelligent Mechatronics and RFID (IMaR) and Universal Trace jointly developed a pre-analytical blood product tracking system that facilitates the integrity and real-time visibility of blood products throughout the pre-analytical blood supply chain. Designed to facilitate the recent technological advances from the Internet of Things (IOT), RFID, smart interconnected objects, cloud computing and the future Internet, the system is based on passive UHF RFID systems strategically placed at traditional venerable points across the supply network. Learn how RFID-enabled technology is delivering a secure and tamper-proof pre-analytical blood supply chain for the health-care industry.
