VCode® — the Technology of Infinite possibilities
The US version marketed as COVI-PASS™
  • The company developing the app is VST Enterprises Ltd. of Manchester, developers of VCode and V-Platform, the technology powering the V-Health Passport. The Health Passport is built on top of these platforms.
  • VCode is like a next generation QR code, which ensures ‘Military Grade’ encryption and can be scanned metres away and while in motion ‘to ensure social distancing’.
  • The size of the code can be readable as small as 100 microns. A human hair is between 30 and 300 microns diameter. In other words, this code can be read at the size of an injectable microchip.
