Id Counterfeit Pharmaceuticals with Portable Raman
The growing danger of counterfeit and substandard medicines entering the supply chain is a concern for global pharmaceutical manufacturers and consumers. Recent innovations in instrument miniaturization enables lab-quality analysis at the point of need, providing regulatory enforcement agencies and brand security teams the ability to examine the chemical composition of all components of a pharmaceutical dosage through sealed packaging. This results in the rapid identification of counterfeits and enables immediate confiscation . A recent study using the Rigaku Raman Xantus-2 provided data required to confidently authenticate frequently counterfeited medicines.
