The coronavirus pandemic is spreading. Tests and vaccinations have become essential components of comprehensive pandemic control strategies. The worldwide demand for secure test kits for PCR tests or antigen rapid tests is correspondingly high. Vaccine authorization procedures are running in parallel with coronavirus vaccination preparations, and it is already clear that there is going to be an immense need for future vaccines. In addition to testing and vaccination, the focus is on effective medications against COVID-19, which can also make a crucial contribution to coping with the coronavirus pandemic.
Visual protection with TRUSTSEAL®: Holograms with OVD effect
Tamper-proof VOID effect
Customizable security labels
QR codes, barcodes, and serial numbers included via TRUSTCODE®
Other security features: special substrates, adhesives, UV-fluorescent colors, and security printing
With such high demand and corresponding global sales of pharmaceuticals, counterfeiters have long since seen the pandemic as a business opportunity. This represents an incalculable risk for governments and pharmaceutical companies. After all, the impact of incorrect test results, and ineffective or even harmful COVID-19 vaccines or medications on the population and society as a whole would be severe.
As one of the world's leading providers of visual security concepts, we at KURZ have developed a counterfeit protection solution for COVID-19 pharmaceuticals; this is adaptable to your desired product protection level, depending on the components chosen.
Unsere COVID-19-Fälschungsschutzlösung besteht aus einem optischen TRUSTSEAL® Sicherheitselement und einer TRUSTCODE® Software – wahlweise mit App. Diese Kombination ermöglicht Herstellern und Kunden die schnelle und sichere Authentifizierung von Testkits, Impfstoffen und Medikamenten sowie die Nachverfolgung der Warenströme. Zeitgleich stellt unser Plagiatsschutz für COVID-19-Pharmazeutika Fälscher vor hohe Hürden, weil sie optische und digitale Sicherheitskomponenten kundenspezifisch kombiniert.
TRUSTSEAL® elements are our visual security markers for easily checking your COVID-19 pharmaceuticals for counterfeits with the naked eye. This simple check is a first effective stage for your products and is currently indispensable because COVID-19 mass tests have to be carried out in a very short period of time.
TRUSTSEAL® diffractive security elements are manufactured using proprietary technology and are not commercially available. In the production of the high-resolution holographic images, distinctive light-diffracting visual textures are generated, which are easily recognizable from different viewing angles and even in unfavorable lighting conditions.
Whether you choose one of our standard designs or an individual design: the TRUSTSEAL® security hologram can be applied to self-adhesive security labels made of paper, polypropylene, or polyethylene. These labels can be applied to the cardboard boxes in which vaccines are delivered to the planned vaccination centers as well as to each individual vaccination dose.
A VOID effect is integrated into every security label so that attempted manipulation is immediately evident. The intact label indicates that the contents of a box or individual packaging are in their original state.
In addition to TRUSTSEAL®, our standard label for your COVID-19 counterfeit protection solution contains a data matrix code, serialization, a manufacturer logo, and a QR code. The QR code leads to the second component of the KURZ COVID-19 counterfeit protection solution: the TRUSTCODE® software, stored in the TRUSTCODE® database and controllable via mobile end devices such as handheld devices or the iOS- and Android-compatible TRUSTCODE® app.
The standardized TRUSTCODE® app is used to scan the serialized QR code on the security label and establish a connection to the TRUSTCODE® database. The testing physician receives immediate digital authentication of the COVID-19 test kits at hand. Decisive in light of mass testing: the powerful database can handle up to 30,000 requests per second. Benefit from more database-driven functionalities.
