Markers & Taggants



Authentix’ history is as an analytical chemistry company. Our core capability in developing robust molecular markers, purpose built to withstand adulteration and illicit laundering methods, has earned us the reputation as the premier covert marker developer and supplier. In addition to our markers being highly secure, they are also compliant with environmental policies and best practices.

Molecular Markers

Detectable with specialized laboratory equipment, an extensive library of molecular 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 directly into a product such as pharmaceuticals, nutraceuticals, and spirits. Field test by customer 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 markers are soluble in fuel products and detectable with Authentix field detection devices.



More than two trillion liters of fuel marked, for national

COVID-19 Policy Statement


At Authentix, our mission to safeguard the integrity of global commerce is our priority as we continue to focus on customer needs with the challenges presented by the COVID-19 health emergency. Our corporate leadership team is monitoring the situation closely and its potential impact on supply chain continuity.

Our first and foremost commitment is to the health and safety of all Authentix employees. As we have said when faced with other similar infectious disease situations, we will never force Authentix employees to travel to geographic areas where they are uncomfortable or that present an increased risk of exposure to infectious disease.

Effective through April 30, 2020, we have closed the Addison Texas Facility to all personnel who do not require facility equipment to conduct their job, allowing for only those functions such as production/shipping/testing as needed to continue to serve our customers. We have banned all visitors to the Addison Texas Facility as well. We encourage all Authentix sites to enact a similar ban for employee safety and to restrict visitors, but realize this restriction is subject to local needs. We have further banned all air/train travel for all employees for Authentix business purposes. We ask that all customers, vendors or suppliers support these efforts and for those who present themselves at Authentix locations to respect and adhere to our policies and procedures that may limit access on this temporary basis.

We will continue to communicate regularly with our suppliers and updating contingency plans to ensure against any adverse impact or disruption to our customers, acknowledging that we are however subject to continued government restrictions and limited availability of transportation that may continue during this time. We encourage you to reach out to your Authentix point of contact with any questions or concerns.
