The test proved the efficacy of injecting and reading a Biocompatible Chipless RFID Ink “tattoo” within the skin of animals. The technology will be initially leveraged to the livestock industry to help identify/track cattle and thus mitigate export trade loss from BSE scares.

Secondary target markets include laboratory animals, dogs & cats, prime cuts of meat, and military personnel. The company, which is currently raising a Series A equity financing, will license the technology to secondary target markets.

The company's Chief Scientist, Ramos M. Mays is excited with the results. “This is a true proof-of-principle and mitigates most of the technological risk. This proves the ability to create a synthetic biometric or fake fingerprint with Biocompatible Chipless RFID Ink and read it through hair.”

Additionally, the company is pleased to announce the establishment of its Advisory Board, which includes scientists, engineers, and executives in the agriculture industry. Mark C. Pydynowski, Somark’s President, said “Our new advisors in conjunction with the live animal tests provide significant validation for our technology and team. This brings us closer to our goals of helping the United States reclaim the title of world’s premier producer of high quality beef and ensuring a safe food supply.”
