UV (ultra-violet) and IR (Infra-red) printed barcodes are becoming a popular method of adding security marks to products and documents.
The Ultra Violet and Infra-red illumination and enhanced optics are able to see the 'invisible' bar code marks printed with UV fluorescing inks. The pharmaceutical and automotive industries use UV inks to mark items which are only illuminated in Ultra Violet 'Black Light'.
