What does Gentag do?

Gentag licenses and customizes sensor technologies for the healthcare and consumer industries. The company’s first patent describing personal wearable wireless sensors was filed in 1997. Since then, we have developed a unique, groundbreaking suite of wireless and optical sensor technologies for virtually any consumer or healthcare application. Gentag makes custom wearable sensors, skin patches, and innovative disposable diagnostic devices with Internet of Things (IoT) applications for the healthcare, consumer, pharmaceutical, and food industries.
