EENEWS EUROPE. SamplePod, an innovative system for carrying medical samples is using flexible RFID chips in labels from PragmatIC to track thousands of shipments every day.
ELECTRONICS WEEKLY. Dr Catherine Ramsdale, the senior vice-president of technology at PragmatIC, which makes flexible ICs, was encouraged at school by a physics teacher who took A‑level students to an open day at Imperial College in London.
RFID JOURNAL. SamplePod comes with PragmatIC's unique flexible integrated circuits in labels, in order to individually identify each sample, link it to the pod and identify its location from a hospital's surgery department to lab testing.
EUROPEAN PHARMACEUTICAL REVIEW. This article explores how implementing Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology and flexible electronics could help NHS pathology services cope with the challenges of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
TECH XPLORE. In recent years, there has been an increase in the development of flexible electronics: electronic components that can be stretched and thus enable the development of smart watches, fitness trackers, or other wearable smart devices.
PATHOLOGY IN PRACTICE. With the NHS currently under huge strain, additional time-consuming and burdensome processes add to an already heavy workload. Gillian Ewers examines the advantages that radio frequency identification offers in tracking samples and consumables.
VERDICT. The UK firm’s flexible integrated circuits are thinner than a human hair, which means they can be easily embedded into everyday objects. According to PragmatIC, this technology can make it possible for “trillions” of smart objects.
ARM. The story behind our technical paper; “A hardwired machine learning processing engine fabricated with submicron metal-oxide thin-film transistors on a flexible substrate”, started with a question of how to make billions of everyday things smart.
COMPONENTS IN ELECTRONICS. There are increasing demands from the consumer to make things smaller and more convenient. Electronic devices are becoming smaller with more densely populated PCBs assemblies.
EUROPEAN PHARMACEUTICAL MANUFACTURER. Gillian Ewers, vice president of marketing at electronics company PragmatIC, discusses how RFID technology can be used throughout the healthcare sector to improve efficiencies and prevent counterfeiting.
CLEANTECH REPORT. Technology is starting to enable smarter, more detailed data capture, as well as aggregation and analysis. Between 2019-2025, the smart waste market is expected to reach $3.97 billion, at a CAGR of 16.6%. Technologies have emerged to better track plastic throughout its lifecycle.
SUSTAINABILITY MAGAZINE. Cutting-edge embeddable technology is poised to revolutionise waste management, but what challenges and benefits can we expect from the next generation of RFID technology and flexible electronics?
