2DNA is a scannable code with a mobile phone, similar in functionality to a QR code, which contains all the genetic information about the identity and qualitative characteristics of a food, allowing a fast and secure access to genetic information. They are the only scannable codes specifically designed to store food genetic information and represent a new concept in the molecular bio-identification.
2DNAs, like QR codes, are two-dimensional codes (2D). 2DNA codes store information in both the X coordinate and the Y coordinate, unlike a barcode, for example, that only stores information in the X coordinate. 2DNA codes store from the identity of the product to its nutritional characteristics, related to health, gastronomic, productive ...; without the space restrictions imposed by the physical size of the labels.
The new version of the 2DNA code improves the depth of the data by incorporating color to the codes. Until now, 2DNA codes were in black and white, which limited the amount of information stored. By including the color in the new version, the capacity increases considerably, increasing the information associated with it. In addition, following the forefront of technology, the new version of the 2DNA code will incorporate the BLOCKCHAIN technology, improving the security by making it virtually impossible to duplicate or fraudulently use.
The 2DNA codes present a series of exclusive advantages:
