For a chemical startup, InfraTrac, DataStrategy's expertise linked a technology for tagging and tracking counterfeit drugs with a venture fund to create the company. The technology, licensed from the University of Maryland's School of Pharmacy, works like a kind of "wet RFID." Instead of tracking packages, as radio frequency IDs do, InfraTrac tags and tracks the chemical ingredients. and does it in a way that does not require new FDA approval. So companies can detect fakes, track suppliers, even track batches. Currently optimized for powders and pills, it is also capable of tracking liquids.
