Right from Oil & Gas drilling, Quantum Computing, Biomedical and Pharmaceuticals to Power Management, Non-gem uses of diamonds exceed those of Gems uses. But it is probably the first time that someone has developed a new diamond application in authentication technology, to solve the global problem of counterfeiting.
Taaneh, a company specializing in use of diamond particles for development of authentication, identification and construction technologies as anti-counterfeiting systems, has recently published its patent application that details the company’s anti-counterfeiting platform.
Acute problem of counterfeiting is affecting Industries globally, from cosmetics to electronics, which are loosing billions of dollars to the rising menace of counterfeited products. As per WHO, around USD 431 billion of counterfeited pharmaceutical products are sold every year.
Comprising closely-held cubic lattices that posses natural variations in structure, Diamonds are capable of emitting hundreds of thousands of unique spectral signatures, which companies can use to confirm authenticity of products. Being inert, Diamonds are the ideal super-material for pharmaceutical products identification and authentication as they carry no risks, especially important for pharmaceutical and medical industry.
Taaneh is advancing this diamond application for use in labeling and packaging of drugs and in various other industries, through its anti-counterfeiting platform. Besides, patent application of Taaneh details the possibility of numerous encryption options, remotely programmable authentication and secure databases for verification and reporting support. Using hand-held detection device, authenticity verification of any product can be done at any stage in a manufacturer’s supply chain, remotely. Apart from slight modifications, no major change in existing manufacturing or packaging process is required for adoption of the company’s authentication solution. Besides, Taaneh claims that its technology is low cost.
This new diamond application development by Taaneh has opened up plethora of opportunities and possibilities for further development and advancement of Non-gem uses of diamonds in anti-counterfeiting technologies and in numerous other industries.
