Protect your brand and maximize fuel revenues with BioTags™
Premium fuels are at risk of low-grade substitutions or dilutions that can cause significant brand damage through poor engine performance or increased pollution. Existing fuel marking technologies are limited in their number of unique identifiers, and can be evaded or replicated by malicious actors. Index has created a microscopic barcode from baker’s yeast that connects a physical product to its digital supply chain. BioTags are a powerful method to verify fuel grade, distributor and source-of-origin, without relying on packaging and container labels.
BioTags are a secure yeast product that act as a microscopic barcode to authenticate and trace a range of raw materials and finished products. They can be easily mixed with or sprayed onto products, and can withstand harsh environments along the supply chain. Using common molecular techniques, BioTags can be identified on-site or in a lab at any point along the supply chain, with quantifiable detection well below parts-per-million. An unlimited number of unique sequences can be created, and each is logged in our customer portal, Trailhead™, and linked to brand owner and supply chain information. BioTags provide secure authentication for fuel marking and integrity programs.
