3:15 p.m. Solving the Antenna Problem
Bulk metal antennas embedded in packaging would make it difficult to recycle the packaging. Several companies are looking to develop conductive inks that would not be harmful to the environment and which could be recycled. This session examines how close are they to achieving this goal and what it will mean for the printing and packaging industries.
4:30 p.m. RFID as an Anti-Counterfeiting Tool
The FDA has recommended using RFID tags in combination with other devices to combat the counterfeiting of drugs. Can RFID really reduce counterfeiting? How can EPC numbers be combined with other anti-counterfeiting techniques already in use today to thwart counterfeiting?
