Use of RFIDs to Combat Pharma Counterfeits


New York Times: The FDA is expected today to approve the use of radio-frequeny identification devices (RFIDs) to help fight counterfeits in the prescription drug pipeline. At the cost of 20 to 50 cents per unit, the devices will probably not yet appear on individual unit packaging yet, but that will likely change as the cost drops.  Walmart is mandating use of RFIDs by its suppliers at the palette level.
