About bluechiip®

bluechiip has developed an IT‑based temperature and identification tracking solution for biosamples in the health and life sciences industry. The system represents a generational change from current methods such as labels (hand‑written and pre-printed), barcodes (linear and 2D) and RFID (Radio Frequency Identification).

The bluechiip® technology has initial applications in the healthcare industry particularly those businesses which require cryogenic storage facilities (biobanks and biorepositories). Several other key markets outside of healthcare include cold-chain logistics/supply chain, security/defence, industrial/manufacturing and aerospace/aviation.

The smart chiip is a patented and highly miniaturised device that enables the bluechiip® chain-of-custody system. The smart chiip features instantaneous measurement of temperature and identification while being immune to extreme environments such as cryogenic storage and gamma irradiation making it suitable for biobank operations.

Each smart chiip contains Lorentz force resonators tuned to frequencies between 1.3mHz and 4.1mHz. The device is passive, in that it does not require power but when the resonators are stimulated they return a signal that indicates the unique identification and temperature of each smart chiip. The unique identification number is programmed during the manufacturing process and the tag is checked by an internal BCH error detection and correction code. Every time a smart chiip is read, the instantaneous temperature is measured, time stamped and recorded. This allows a temperature history to be recorded to provide a more complete chain of custody. The smart chiip will survive sterilisation by autoclaving or gamma irradiation with no degradation or loss of function.
