Types of Authentication Markers

Molecular Markers

Detectable with specialized laboratory equipment, an extensive library of molecular security markers can integrate directly to a product or be combined with many other print or label solutions for forensic and defensible proof of authenticity.

Recognition Markers

Ingestible and FDA-compliant forensic markers for integration are added directly into products such as pharmaceuticals, nutraceuticals, and spirits. These security markers can be field tested by customers using a specialized low-cost Lateral Flow Device (LFD), or in one of our test labs using state of the art Gas Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry (GC-MS).

Optical Markers

Using organic dyes, optical authentication markers are soluble in fuel products and detectable with Authentix field detection devices.
