Veracity Network's research and development group, XStream Systems, is responsible for developing our core technologies and products. All of our technology and products are developed with flexibility and adaptability in mind given the many potential applications that Veracity Network pursues. XStream Systems' engineers and scientists have worked closely with many industries, such as mining, medical, pharmaceutical, homeland security, petroleum, and veterinarian industries on a wide variety of applications.

One of our core technologies is Energy-Dispersive X-Ray Diffraction (EDXRD). This technology combines the penetration power of x-rays with forensic analysis. While the penetration power allows us to look inside objects for materials of interest, EDXRD should not be confused with traditional x-rays, like one would find at a doctor's office for chest x-rays. Instead of using a detector screen or film and observing shadow images, EDXRD applies x-rays at an angle. This angle allows us to collect a molecular level fingerprint of the test sample. This technology is highly material specific since it is based on the diffraction pattern which is unique to each substance. This allows forensic analysis to take place. We have developed the technology to provide automated analysis so that anyone can quickly and easily detect materials of interest.

If you have any potential applications and would like to discuss it in more detail, please do not hesitate to contact us.

For more information on EDXRD technology please see our whitepaper:
"EDXRD Technology- What It Is and How It Works".

Industry Presentation
Materials Authentication and Verification within the Pharmaceutical Supply Chain:  Working with and Moving Beyond Track and Trace By Alan Clock
It is widely accepted that implementation of a track and trace system is a leading tool to aid pharmaceutical manufacturers in the counterfeiting and diversion battle.  However, tracking systems do not tell the whole story because, as a stand alone solution, these technologies do not have the capabilities to verify the physical drug inside a manufacturer's sealed bottle. 

This presentation aims to fill the conceptual gaps in securing the pharmaceutical supply chain and follows the introduction of authentication and verification technology as a solution for this rapidly growing threat.
