The ultra-small Minidose U8 RAIN RFID inlays for pharma applications are the first products on the market to receive ARC certification (Spec S) from Auburn University’s RFID Lab, and to be approved for use by DoseID. Minidose U8 inlays have been carefully designed to blend performance, cost-effectiveness, and size to work on multiple items such as syringes, plastic, and glass vials, as well as packaging designs used for all kinds of pharmaceuticals.


Minidose U8 is a UHF RFID product performing in the standard UHF RFID frequency band between 860 to 960MHz. It has a small form factor of 22 x 12 mm, is available in dry and wet formats, and uses NXP’s proven UCODE 8 IC.

Minidose U8 inlays are compliant with ISO 9001:2015 Quality Management and ISO 14001:2015 Environmental Management, which ensure a reliable and state-of-the-art product that meets a variety of application needs. They are manufactured according to the industry’s highest quality standards, as confirmed by the RFID Lab at Auburn University, which awarded Avery Dennison Smartrac its first-ever ARC accreditation for overall design and manufacturing quality.
