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 of repackaging.

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 us at
