ID-Cap® System

Meet the ID-Cap System

The ID-Cap System is an end-to-end solution for monitoring and tracking oral medication adherence of every patient in your clinical study in real-time.

Our Solution seamlessly, digitally, unequivocally captures ingestion information data from inside the body in real-time.


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. Necklace and wristband options available for patients.  

• 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 & Reporting

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.
