  • About the size of a grain of rice, the VeriMed microchip contains a 16-digit unique ID number. Being a passive RFID microchip, it doesn’t actively send information to the reader but requires the reader to excite the microchip to relay the information. Despite many fears from people about being tracked, the VeriMed microchip does not have tracking capabilities. The microchip is pre-loaded in a sterile inserter and comes with instructions and registration materials.
  • Increasing the Golden Hour. Preparing families. Getting ready for transplantation if the patient is an organ donor.
