Taking Advantage Of RFID’s Expanding Role In Medical Devices
Operationally, RFID offers low electromagnetic interference (EMI) properties, low cost, small size, low power, and battery-less technology capabilities. Additionally, Advances in RFID tag technology offer expanded memory capacity, enabling additional data to be stored on each tag, which helps to prevent counterfeiting and ensures product reliability. Data such as lot number, manufacturing date, expiration date, etc. can be written to the tag during the manufacturing process, while new information —such as shipping date, date of sterilization, or treatment history — can be added throughout the product supply chain and lifecycle.
