VeriChip’s innovative RFID security solutions stem from a series of ground-breaking technologies including:

The world’s first and only patented, FDA-cleared, human-implantable RFID microchip (http://www.verichipcorp.com/content/company/rfidtags#implantable),
The only patented active RFID tag with skin-sensing capabilities,
The smallest active RFID tags with the longest battery life,
Patented anti-collision technology providing unobstructed support for up to 16 million ID tags while improving battery life for the utmost in scale and reliability,
The only auto-ID technology platform (http://www.verichipcorp.com/content/company/platform) providing data collection, location awareness, and decision processing to any application leveraging one or more auto-ID tag technologies (e.g. active RFID, passive RFID, bar code, Wi-Fi). Leveraging these technology milestones, VeriChip is able to offer the most unique range of RFID security solutions for the identification, tracking, and protection of people, their assets, and their environments.

United States Patent 20080003599 Kind Code:

The present invention relates to biochemistry, medicine, and molecular biology, in particular to analytical biochemistry and immunochemical assay, and is concerned with a biological microchip for multiple parallel detection and quantitative determination of different compounds. The biochip comprises an array of three-dimensional hydrogel elements which have a predetermined volume, formed on a support by the method of photo- or chemically induced polymerization, and containing biological molecules of the same or different nature (ligands). The invention provides a method for detecting compounds on the biological microchip, comprising identification thereof by mass spectrometry techniques directly on the hydrogel element of the microchip and a method for detecting immunoassay results, consisting in carrying an immuno-PCR and registering the results thereof on the same microchip. The invention also relates to a method of multiple parallel immunoassay of compounds on a biological microchip. Biological microchips for immunoassay and a method of carrying out multiple parallel analysis of compounds can find application in analyzing a wide range of high-molecular and low-molecular compounds, in medicine, pharmacology, food industry, environmental protection, in research work, particularly in proteomics.
