The GammaTag 500 is ideal for high volume items requiring repeated gamma sterilization. It is well suited to the pharmaceutical, biotech, medical device, gowning, and cleanroom supply industries. Unlike the original GammaTag, GammaTag 500 is designed for repeated exposure to gamma radiation. It handles typical doses of 25 kGy (kilograys) and a cumulative amount of at least 500 kGy with no loss of data. With a form factor of just 4 × 52 mm, GammaTag 500 is among the smallest RFID tags available today. The read-only tag uses the globally available 2.45 GHz radio frequency and is available as a bare inlay or converted into various finished tag constructions.
