Identiv, Inc. has announced that the company and Schreiner Group GmbH & Co. KG have entered into a multi-year agreement for the delivery of Identiv’s RFID Inlays for device-level authentication and anti-counterfeiting of one-time-use medical devices in hospitals.
Identiv RFID portfolio
Currently contracted to strengthen secure authentication in the Internet of Things (IoT) over the next three years, several million inlays from Identiv’s radio-frequency identification (RFID) portfolio will be connected to high-tech labels and attached to one-time-use medical devices in hospitals throughout Europe.
Identiv’s RFID Inlays will provide contactless identification of the devices, optimising processes during medical procedures (i.e., checking for compatibility between different types of equipment) and protecting patients’ health and safety from counterfeiting.
