Haelixa is a traceability solutions provider who makes it possible for brands and manufacturers to mark and trace products from farm to retail. By creating a unique fingerprint for each party involved, we provide a forensic proof for the origin, authenticity and integrity of products. Our data is highly reliable, because we turn the product itself into the carrier of information about its origin and journey using a marker based on DNA that is solved in liquid and then applied to the product. The marker is harmless for humans and the environment, does not affect the properties of the product and is yet robust enough to withstand all industrial processing.
Integration of Haelixa
The Haelixa solution for textile fibers (i.e. cotton, wool, cashmere, silk, etc.) can easily be integrated into existing automated production processes. The read out can be done with the final product or any intermediate product with a simple test. And the results of the test can be uploaded into existing ERP or blockchain solutions.
