ApolloTM - Instant Read Markers

Apollo™ is Tracerco's suite of instant read markers for rapid field based identification of products and packaging - helping brand owners to take immediate remedial actions.

Tracerco's covert photonic markers, with unique spectral sequences, are simple to deploy and readily used in in-product and print applications - from banknotes to pharmaceuticals.

Key advantages of Apollo™ :

  • Extremely sensitive readers that allow the markers to be used in the marking of high volume materials
  • Products as well as the packaging can be instantly authenticated
  • A marking system for products subject to physical and chemical extremes (temperature, abrasion, solvents, acids and bases, etc).

A hybrid version of the technology has been developed and is specially designed for products subject to physical and chemical extremes (temperature, abrasion, solvents, acids and bases, etc). This unique technology facilitates anti-counterfeit and authentication marking of:

  • Sterilisable Pharmaceutical glass
  • Automotive and Aerospace advanced ceramics
  • Glass and ceramic packaging for high value consumer products

Tracerco's scientists have now been able to devise sensitive readers which make this instant read technology suitable for in-product marking of high volume materials. Faced with concerns over false liability claims resulting from substitution of its product by inferior copies, a global market leader asked Tracerco to deliver a fast field test for authenticating the product. Following a rapid development program, Tracerco deployed the exceedingly field friendly, instant read Apollo™ technology. Click here to read the case study.
