Cathexis Innovations Inc., a Canadian RFID provider, is generating buzz for its new mobile Bluetooth-enabled RFID reader. The pen-sized reader increases mobility and use for close-proximity RFID applications, Healthcare IT reports.
IDBlue reportedly can read RFID tags without ever being linked to a computing device. Bluetooth technology helps to track and identify specific items, such as drug doses and trials in the healthcare and pharmaceutical industry.
According to Healthcare IT’s news story, Cathexis claims that IDBlue eliminates the need for human intervention in theses processes.
