MDT Innovations, one of the fastest growing technology companies in Asia Pacific, recently revealed that its Mi-Linotag 330 UHF RFID Linen Tags have been successfully tested by world renowned MRI professionals Shellock R&D Services. The tests validated that Mi-Linotag 330 is suitable and in compliance for use under 1.5-Tesla and 3-Tesla MRI environments.

To assure that MDT Innovations’ Mi-Linotag 330 UHF RFID Linen Tag is safe and reliable to be used, without causing potential harm and injury to the patient undergoing an MRI examination, the company specially requested samples to be subjected for an extended period of one hour exposure under 3-Tesla MR scanner, and the results were satisfactory, said a press release from the company. Based on the results, Shellock R&D Services recommended labeling of Mi-Linotag to be ‘MR Conditional at 1.5- and 3-Tesla.’ Notably, this is one of the highest ratings that can be applied for an RFID device.

The rugged Mi-Linotag 330 can be used in various applications including healthcare industry (hospital linens), hospitality industry (hotel linens), and apparel industry, which are just tip of the iceberg. The Mi-Linotag 330 is a passive RFID Tag, which is a specially designed tag that adopts yarn as wireless antenna, hence suitable to be sewn directly into fabric, unlike the common passive tags which are visible and can be easily peeled off. This provides vast leverage to respective industries as garments can be tracked and monitored from the moment they are manufactured.

As Mi-Linotag 330 also passed the needle detector test, means it is also highly suitable to be embedded during the garment manufacturing process itself. The reading distance is approximately 11 metres (on air) and it is also suitable to be used as a laundry tag with sustainable environment up to 250 degrees celsius and 60 bar pressure.

“We were impressed with the findings obtained from our tests that were applied to the MDT Innovations’ Mi-Linotag 330 UHF RFID Linen Tags,” stated Shellock, adjunct clinical professor of radiology and medicine, Keck School of Medicine, University of Southern California. “Furthermore, we were satisfied to observe the relatively small image artifact generated by this particular RFID tag. The measured maximum image artifact size of 2 milli metres under severe MRI conditions will result in little or no impact on the diagnostic use of MRI.” (PC)
