Overview

PharmaSeq has developed a powerful new technology platform called the p-Chip®, an ultra-small microtransponder tag that can be used across a wide range of fields and markets. Applications include tagging, tracking and authenticating consumer goods, industrial goods and small animals, including laboratory mice. The company is also using the p-Chip platform to develop applications for life science research and clinical diagnostic markets. Additional information about the underlying p-Chip technology can be found on the p-Chip for Tagging and Authentication Applications and the p-Chips for Life Science and Diagnostic Applications pages.

Products being sold by the company today include bulk p-Chip tags for gluing onto or embedding into a range of objects, p-Chip tags housed in a syringe for injecting into the tails of laboratory mice, static reading wands for securely reading the p-Chip identification number, and various accessories. Information describing the wand technology for reading p-Chips can be found on the Static PharmaSeq Wands page. Products available for purchase can be found in the product catalog.

Products in develop include chemically modified p-Chips that have various types of biochemical probes attached to their surfaces, such as DNA, antibodies or peptides, and the reagent kits that go along with them. PharmaSeq is also developing modified p-Chips that have sensors placed on them for measuring environmental properties, such as pH. These products will be read by a dynamic, flow-based p-Chip reading system, which is under development. Information describing the technology used in PhamaSeq's dynamic reader for life science applications can be found on the Dynamic PharmaSeq Readers page. Details on the life science, diagnostic and environmental sensing applications that PharmaSeq is developing is found on the Life Sciences & Diagnostic Applications in Development page.
