Title (EN) AUTHENTICATABLE COATINGS FOR PHARMACEUTICAL TABLETS AND INGESTIBLE MATERIALS
(FR) ENROBAGES AUTHENTIFIABLES POUR COMPRIMÉS PHARMACEUTIQUES ET MATIÈRES À INGÉRER
Abstract: front page image
(EN)An authenticable and machine readable coating for pills, tablets and other ingestible materials is provided. The disclosure also relates to methods of authenticating the same. The coatings are formed from a lattice of particles stacked to cause selective diffraction such that each pill or tablet has an optical signature. The signature associated with each coating can be read and authenticated. In one embodiment, the particles are substantially spherical and self-organized. In one embodiment, generally recognized as safe (GRAS) materials are used to form the particles.
(FR)Cette invention concerne un enrobage pour pilules, comprimés et autres matières à avaler, ledit enrobage étant authentifiable et lisible par machine. L'invention concerne également des méthodes d'authentification de l'enrobage. L'enrobage est constitué d'un réseau de particules empilées conférant une diffraction spécifique telle que chaque pilule ou comprimé dispose de sa propre signature optique. La signature associée à chaque enrobage peut être lue et authentifiée. Dans un mode de réalisation de l'invention, les particules sont sensiblement sphériques et organisées de manière autonome. Dans un autre mode de réalisation, des matières considérées comme sans danger (matières GRAS) sont utilisées pour former les particules.
