The Infant ‘Identi’fierTM: The new biometric safety tool for parents of newborn and adopted infants.
This dual ended Infant ‘Identi’fier™ captures the infant’s saliva on one end and the mother’s fingerprint on the other.
The small wafer is swabbed inside the mouth of a newborn in the first few hours of life by a nurse or doctor. The end opposite from the DNA swab of the Infant ‘Identi’fier™ is used to cast the mother’s thumbprint/fingerprint. This will link the mother and the infant in one, unique biometric tool. The parents are given the Infant ‘Identi’fier™ in a double sealed bag and instructed to keep it in a safe place of their choosing.
Packaging with polybag or blisterpack, and logo application, may be determined by licensee, wholesale customer or hospital vendor.
