Our Lepton-id Secure 2D Bar code
Each has its own unique id that cannot be distinguished by traditional scanners
Secure 2 D Bar Code
All standard 2D bar codes have built in error corrections methods. Error correction allows for image insertions (destroying small section), but bar code is still readable.
The unique Secure 2D Bar code utilizes a special developed Lepton-id algorithm to alter the original bar code in order to insure, the bar code is generated by the Lepton-id proprietary software.
A Lepton-id scanner can distinguish if the bar code is developed using Lepton-id proprietary software. A traditional scanner does not detect or distinguish this deviation. In this way, we protect the pipeline of products utilizing the Lepton-id generated 2-D bar code from counterfeit product. The Lepton-id generated bar code cannot be re-printed from the scanned data.
Secure 2D barcode
Lepton Id has added a unique (patent pending) security enhancements to standard 2-dimensional barcode. Lepton-id can take a standard barcode, for example a QR code, and selectively alter some of the characteristics of the bar/space to provide a transformed 2-D barcode with a unique characteristics. If the standard barcode and the transformed barcode are read by a commercially available barcode scanner then the output of the scanner will provide exactly the same data string. When the barcode is scanned by the Lepton-id verification scanner, we can then determine if the barcode's bar/space transformation has met the predefined modifications used to form the barcode. If the result of the scan is positive then that indicates that the label and the barcode is valid. If the response from the scanner is negative then this indicates that the label is a copy. Additionally, the standard barcode is typically a unique number. (Please visit our track and trace section of the website for further details on this capability).
While we offer standard and transformed 2-dimensional bar coded labels we can also provide then formed from as part of a Laser etched hologram as to provides an extremely high level of security. Once you add to the Laser etched label the addition of laser etched micro-printing and the technique of 2D-barcode transformation and the addition of embedded taggants then the label (and Hologram) is as close to impossible to duplicate as any available product.
Patent is pending.
