End-to-end supply chain security

Nucleotrace has developed the only supply chain security platform that offers end-to-end traceability over the entire product lifecycle - from raw ingredients to unpackaged and reconstituted products. Existing technologies are insecure because transactions recorded on a database are only a proxy for what happens in the real world. Nucleotrace addresses this insecurity by creating an unbreakable link between the virtual world of a database and the physical world of a product.  

Nucleotace has applications in all consumable products but we are particularly excited about pharmaceuticals. Nucleotrace was recently accepted onto the EMA and FDA emerging technologies programs.

Compliance. Meets core objectives outlined in the Drug Supple Chain Security Act (DSCSA) and FDA/APEC Supply Chain Toolkit.

Serialisation compatible. Seamless integration into product serialisation platforms.


Secure. Nucleotrace technology creates an immutable link between product, package and database (centralized,  decentralized or distributed).


Safe. Very small amounts of DNA oligonucleotide are used which is pharmacologically inactive and whose safety is supported by industry regulators.


Inexpensive. Economically viable for cheap generic drugs.


Coverage. 100% unbroken supply chain coverage from raw ingredients to finished product.


Tracing resolution. Traceability to the smallest unpackaged dosage unit (tablet), not just package.


Harmonised data sharing. Information transfers are harmonised between product ingredients, finished product, package and single point of contact (SPOC) database.


Rapid parallel sample processing. Up to 200 product samples can be processed in <1.5 hours which is suitable for auditing at points of sale and ports of entry.


Portable testing. Compatibility with new DNA sequencing technology will soon permit real-time smartphone based sample processing without the need for laboratory access.


Product-integrated information. When a product is mixed or split information is automatically merged or forked. 


Simple. Removes burden on moving parts of supply chain (e.g. individuals responsible for commissioning / decommissioning serial numbers – in the case of product serialization).


Forensic capabilities. Last legitimate node traceback permits identification of leaking/fraudulent nodes from product alone (e.g. products sold illegally, recombined/used in illicit drugs).
