'Upon inspection and systematic verification of 19 randomly selected master cases, using a Taggant
reader, [a BIR-registered tool used to test the authenticity of excise stamps affixed on cigarette packs], it was discovered that all selected cigarette packs bear fake stamps and carry the same serial number,' the BIR said.
An inspection and systematic verification of 19 randomly selected master cases, using a Taggant
reader, showed all selected cigarette packs bore fake stamps and carried the same serial number.
All of the stamps emitted red light under a Taggant
reader and were lighter in color than that of the genuine ones.
These cigarette tax stamps were verified as fake through the taggant
reader, an equipment used by the Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) to test the authenticity of cigarette tax stamps, said Lapea.
Pursuant to the Agreements, Applied DNA will supply taggant

Covert security is incorporated as an invisible taggant
detected only with the help of a proprietary device.
This new detection tool has surpassed our previous records of performance and usability, and represents the next step in the advancement of spectral taggant
* Machine readability using a password protected terminal capable of recognizing the proprietary taggant
XRF (X-ray fluorescence) and handheld or inline laser detection equipment can "read" the embedded taggant
signature and verify authenticity of the polymer, product, or component.
