Synopsis

Serialisation only goes part-way to securing pharma supply chains and does not eliminate the lucrative counterfeit drug market. Blockchain offers an extra level of security but it too needs a ‘link’ to the physical world, in order to be completely secure. DNA is physical code that can be ‘read’ at just parts per trillion and is accepted by the FDA as a PCID so by including uniquely sequenced DNA in drug formulas (and/or in the inks and packaging) drugs can be authenticated at the point of sale or at any stage in the supply chain.
