XStream Systems Inc is a US-based company which develops X-ray based identification equipment for research and pharmaceutical industry applications.[1] The company is named after the stream of photons emitted from an X-ray source. XStream Systems' logo is derived from both a graphic representation of the letter "x" and multiple hurricanes hitting their eastern seaboard headquarters in 2004. The current corporate headquarters are located in Sebastian, Florida.

Company history[edit]

This company was incorporated in May, 2004. The technology used in XStream Systems' products was first developed at Rutgers University.[2] The company was the first in the industry to deploy counterfeit detection equipment along the pharmaceutical distribution supply chain that could look inside any packaging and perform forensic analysis on the drug products inside. All of XStream Systems' technology, products, and services were acquired in 2011 by Veracity Network, Inc. In 2013, Secure Pharma Chain, LLC signed an exclusive licensing agreement with Veracity Network for all pharmaceutical applications of the technology.

Areas of expertise[edit]

Products are based on Energy Dispersive X-Ray Diffraction (EDXRD),[3] a technology also used in synchrotrons. Following Bragg's Law, XStream Systems' equipment verifies molecular crystal structure[4] of materials and authenticates a pharmaceutical's composition.
