    The ID-Cap System

    Watch How It Works


    The ID-Capsule is a standard hard gelatin capsule with an embedded ingestible wireless sensor – the ID-Tag™.  Each time an ID-Capsule is swallowed, the ID-Tag uses etectRx’s proprietary communications technology to transmit a very low power digital message from within the patient’s stomach.

    • Patient friendly – It looks, tastes and feels just like an ordinary capsule.
    • Communicates every dose – Communication between the ID-Tag and the Reader results in every ingestion being detected.  The ID-Tag communications technology has demonstrated high reliability in multiple clinical studies.
    • Self-powered – The ID-Tag is powered by the patient’s own stomach fluids.
    • Leaves no trace – After the capsule dissolves, the ultra-thin, flexible sensor is naturally eliminated through the patient’s GI tract.


    The Reader is a wearable device that detects messages transmitted from ingested ID-Tags and forwards them using Bluetooth technology to the ID-Cap App on the patient’s smartphone.

    • Simple to use – Easy to wear and remove. Just put it on and go.
    • Battery powered –Place the Reader on the wireless charging pad to recharge.
    • Flexible – Can be taken off between doses.
    • Comfortable – Small and lightweight, does not require adhesives or direct contact with the skin to receive messages from the ID-Tag.

    Patient App

    The ID-Cap App relays the messages received by the Reader to the cloud-based secure server. It allows patients to view ingestion events as they occur and displays ingestion event history.

    • Ingestion history – The app displays ingestion event history for the patient.
    • System status – The application displays battery status and reminders to recharge the Reader.

    Clinician Dashboard

    The ID-Cap Dashboard completes the information flow that starts with the ingestion of the ID-Cap and provides the clinician or pharmacist with a total view of their patients’ ingestion events.

    • Individual patient management – Enables clinician to view, track, and trend patient ingestion events in real time.
    • Population health analytics – Allows for efficient analysis of ingestion events across large groups of patients using the ID-Cap System.
    • Clinical trial support – Allows for real-time monitoring of critical ingestion event data from clinical trial participants.
