This is the first batch of products on the market that have obtained the ARC certification (Spec S) of Auburn University’s RFID laboratory and have been approved for use by DoseID. The Minidose U8 inlay has been carefully designed to combine performance, cost-effectiveness and dimension. It can be used in a variety of items, such as syringes, plastic bottles and glass bottles, and can be used in the packaging design of various medicines.

Minidose U8 is a UHF RFID product with a standard UHF RFID frequency band between 860MHz-960MHz. The size is very small, only 22x12mm, can be presented as wet inlay (with adhesive) and dry inlay (without adhesive), using NXP UCODE®️8 chip. Hal Hikita, Head of Product Line Management at Avery Dennison, said, “As the smallest product currently on the market that has passed ARC Spec S, Minidose U8 meets the needs of a variety of drug single-level packaging solutions. Even when filled with drugs and in the case of biological products, the inlay can also exert strong performance on transparent and amber glass, plastics and syringes, thereby embodying the important value of RFID for asset management in healthcare, pharmacies and laboratories.”
