Technology: ProCheck debuts text message verification of drugs in Pakistan

April 13th, 2016 - www.securingindustry.com

Start-up company ProCheck has started protecting medicinal products in Pakistan from counterfeiting using SMS verification technology. The company has deployed serialized codes on packs of medicines sold in Pakistan by local drugmaker Ferozsons Laboratories, focusing initially on several products for high blood pressure and diabetes. Each of the packs bears a unique code that can be texted to a number (9900) in order to get confirmation within a few seconds of whether the medicine pack is authentic or fake.
