Sterilizable RFID Tags Validated

San Diego-based Awarepoint says an independent medical laboratory has tested and validated its sterlizable RFID tags, which are designed to provide hospitals real time location tracking information about patients and medical equipment. The tests, which simulated clinical use, were done to show that Awarepoint’s battery-powered Radio Frequency Identity tags can be repeatedly cleaned, disinfected, and sterilized. As Bruce reported last month, the privately held company makes tags that operate with Awarepoint’s Zigbee-based Real-Time Location System (RTLS), which enables tracking the location of thousands of items in the network.
