Identifying Counterfeits

23 12 2009

I was searching the internet in more depth on the process of  identifying counterfeit drugs. I stumbled upon this website PharmaFocusAsia. It is talking about the benefit that the tool developed for PAT may be used in the determination of a counterfeit product. [Written by: Emil W.

Here are the tools:

A hand held "free-space" NIR instrument

A hand-held portable Raman instrument being used on bulk powder in plastic

Using a hand-held Raman instrument on blister packs of product

Here is another website discussing more about Hand-held Ramans. Market Profile.

I am interested in buying a portable raman for my staff at work. I am wondering how well this really works and if it is worth the money to spend on it.
