NFC-Authenticated COVID-19 Test Kits
Jones Healthcare Group, TPG Rewards and NXP Semiconductors announced a digitized verification and integrity protection solution to authenticate COVID-19 test kits. The joint solution was developed to address the ongoing challenges of the pandemic, as the market experiences a rise in counterfeit products and at-home kits can prove difficult for consumers to understand and use. Manufacturers can now rely on Jones’ unique ability to manage the regulated packaging process with speed and flexibility.
The kits are equipped with NXP’s NTAG® NFC advanced technology to enable secure electronic product authentication and tamper protection, while instantly providing crucial, real-time information to help consumers use kits properly. TPG provides an NFC-powered platform using NXP’s Authenticator service. We are working closely with numerous test kit producers to bring much-needed test kits to market.
