Axia Lab is located at MSU’s St. Andrews Facility. In addition to housing the Axia Institute’s testing facility, MSU St. Andrews hosts a combination of extramurally supported research: science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics (STEAM) programs for students and families.
The Axia Lab has the ability to simulate a distribution center with the differing levels of equipment and radio frequency identification (RFID) testing capabilities. The Axia Lab also contains a Wet Lab that provides waste valorization through biomass characterization and product development.
Axia’s packaging lab contains RFID label printers, handheld scanners, a RFID tunnel, and a RFID table. It also features a series of RFID-enabled cabinets, including Cubixx and IG for testing in our healthcare and pharmaceutical vertical.
Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) Lab
The RFID Lab houses our anechoic voyanic chamber for optimal location of tag identification and multiple faced tagged item performance testing. Axia Lab has also received and kept up to date Voyantic’s Certification of Calibration.
Pallet Wrapper Lab
Axia Lab has the capabilities to test product at the pallet level with our RFID-enabled pallet wrapper. This piece of equipment allows optimal readability at a high product volume level as the machine rotates past the antenna multiple times allowing Axia’s team to receive highly accurate results.
Axia’s Wet Lab aims to define innovative and engineered approaches to minimize and re-purpose the production of byproducts from food and agriculture processes. Axia’s most recent research conducted in this lab was a project focused on evaluating the antioxidant activity in natural extracts from cherry pits.
