New Lexmark ID app spots counterfeit ink cartridges

LEXINGTON, Ky. (June 7, 2012) — Lexmark International, Inc. (NYSE: LXK) announces the Lexmark ID app, allowing customers to verify Lexmark-branded inkjet cartridges on the spot using only their smartphone or tablet.

Why confirm a cartridge is a Lexmark original? Counterfeiters sometimes illegally reuse and refill Lexmark cartridges and package and sell them as original Lexmark goods. The origin and quality of these cartridges are unknown to the customer, and they can sometimes leak, run out after a few pages, not work at all or even damage a printer.

The app is free from Android, Apple or Blackberry.
