Identive Announces Radiation Resistant RFID Tracking Labels for Medical Industry

February 8, 2013 — Identive Group Inc. announced new radio frequency identification (RFID) labels for the medical industry that are specially designed to withstand the radiation processes commonly used to sterilize medical devices, equipment and supplies. Unlike standard RFID products that lose their memory content when exposed to radiation, Identive's new radiation-resistant labels enable critical identification, usage and tracking information to reside on medical components and storage containers throughout their useful lives.

RFID technology offers superior convenience and performance to many other identification technologies, such as barcodes, but is just beginning to be adopted for medical applications. One barrier has been the challenge of adapting the technology to operate in harsh and demanding environments, such as sterilization using X-rays or gamma radiation. As an innovator of RFID applications to solve complex problems, Identive has created the new labels to address the stringent manufacturing and operating requirements of the healthcare industry. Identive's new RFID labels are resistant to radiation, offer read/write functionality and have a memory capacity of up to 256 bytes. Compliance with ISO 15693, ISO 18000-3 and EPCglobal(R) standards ensures compatibility with common RFID reader devices worldwide.

Typical CT imaging features for COVID-19. Unenhanced, thin-section axial images of the lungs in a 52-year-old man with a positive RT-PCR (A-D) show bilateral, multifocal rounded (asterisks) and peripheral GGO (arrows) with superimposed interlobular septal thickening and visible intralobular lines (“crazy-paving”). Routine screening CT for diagnosis or exclusion of COVID-19 is currently not recommended by most professional organizations or the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Series CT scans in 35-year-old woman with COVID-19 pneumonia. (a) Scan obtained on illness days 1 showed multiple pure ground-glass opacity (GGO) mainly in right lower lobe. (b) Scan obtained on illness days 5 showed increased extent of GGO and early consolidation. (c) Scan obtained on illness days 11 showed multiple consolidation with almost the same extent. (d) Scan obtained on illness days 15 showed a mixed pattern with a slightly smaller extent, and the perilobular consolidation might suggest the presence of organizing pneumonia. The patient was discharged on illness days 17. Image courtesy of the journal Radiology
