Emergency Management

Designed for medical examiners, forensic scientists, criminalists and the like, VeriChip’s Emergency Management solutions allow users to accurately manage, track, and inventory evidentiary items associated with small incidents, crime scenes, or mass disasters. When disasters occur, the VeriTrace system can work with VeriChip’s other implantable applications (VeriMed ) to aid in response and recovery efforts.

Imagine one identification number for everything associated with a crime, disaster, or the daily management of remains and evidentiary items. VeriTrace is the only end-to-end solution to manage & inventory remains & evidentiary items using implantable RFID tags.

The VeriTrace System incorporates implantable Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) microchips and Ricoh digital cameras, providing a complete end-to-end solution to manage, track, and inventory remains as well as all associated evidentiary items. Through this system, medical examiners, criminalists, investigators and forensic scientists can eliminate identification and tracking errors while speeding up their day-to-day processes.


  • Can be combined with nearly every database and related IT system currently utilized in offices, departments, and facilities of medical examiners, coroners, criminalists, crime scene investigators, forensic scientists, sheriffs, police, and related industries.
  • Provides a safe, efficient, and reliable procedure for large and small scale programs to assist in the management, tracking and identification of unknown remains and evidentiary items.
  • Creates assurance in the identification and tracking process.
  • Helps to eliminate misidentification.
  • Removes any family member concern over improper or incorrect identification of remains.
  • Can be ready through the materials used in post-mortem body bags.

VeriChip is the only FDA-approved human implantable RFID, Class 2 Medical Device

VeriChip RFID microchip, with its unique 16-digit identification number, creates a complete identification and tracking modality. At the time and point of the microchip’s insertion or attachment, a multitude of identifying characteristics of the body and associated evidentiary items can be entered into a web-enabled database. Users can now scan the microchip and transfer the ID to a Ricoh camera, which automatically embeds the VeriChip ID into every subsequent image taken. Ricoh cameras also use GPS to embed into the image the location where it was taken.
The need to repeatedly open body bags to confirm or reconfirm identity is removed.

Transfer of the microchip between remains is prevented due to its insertion within the body tissue or exposed bone. Unlike traditional paper “toe tags” or bar codes, detachment, obliteration, or switching are impossible.
