Dean Hart, Executive Vice President of NanoGuardian,
a division of NanoInk,
Inc. and a 25-year veteran in the Pharmaceutical industry joins LogiPharma
as a featured speaker on September 21, 2009. His session is: When You Absolutely,
Positively, Need It Today - A Case For Dose Brand Protection
NanoGuardian has established itself as a pioneer in brand protection with the
introduction of its NanoEncryption™ technology, the only on-dose, brand
protection technology that enables manufacturers to trace and authenticate each
and every dose from plant to patient.
NanoGuardian’s NanoEncryption technology applies overt, covert, and forensic-level
security features directly to tablets, capsules and vial caps. NanoGuardian
provides manufacturers a dual-protective benefit with a single technology -
the overt and covert security features enable authentication at any point in
the supply chain, while the forensic NanoCodes provide comprehensive tracing
information on every single dose. Since NanoGuardian’s on-dose protection
always remains with the specific dose even after numerous repackaging efforts,
NanoGuardian provides brand integrity, protection, and confidence that standard,
on-package, e-pedigree technologies cannot alone provide.
NanoGuardian’s NanoCodes can be associated with an unlimited amount of
data including but not limited to product information (strength, expiration
date), manufacturing information (location, date, batch, lot number), and distribution
information (country, distributor, wholesaler, chain). This on-dose information
is critical for manufacturers to effectively fight illegal diversion in a world
NanoGuardian’s Closed-Loop Protection™ is a market-monitoring program
that works hand-in-hand with NanoEncryption technology to provide manufacturers
an "Early Warning System" in the detection of counterfeit and diverted
product. Through random audits at retail pharmacies, NanoGuardian’s Closed-Loop
Protection can proactively detect counterfeit and diverted product providing
manufactures with early detection of problems and mitigating risk to brands,
companies, and patients.
NanoGuardian also assists in authenticating Returned Goods. As returned products
are received, they can be quickly authenticated via the overt and covert security
features. Random sampling of returned product and decryption of the forensic
NanoCodes can provide quick detection of diverted product that is being "laundered"
through the Returned Goods process and thereby help manufacturers bring a stop
to this costly problem.
NanoGuardian’s NanoEncryption technology does not rely on investment
by downstream partners so NanoGuardian can provide immediate benefits in the
fight against counterfeiting and illegal diversion. In 2008, a NanoGuardian
client received approval of their SNDA for implementing NanoEncryption technology
as a brand protection tactic for their blockbuster brand. NanoGuardian’s
NanoEncryption technology can be implemented immediately to assist manufacturers
in the fight against counterfeiting and diversion. To learn more, please visit
