Counterfeit Pharmaceutical Screening
< Return to Pharmaceutical Manufacturing
Ensure patient safety and brand integrity
Counterfeit pharmaceuticals are increasingly entering the supply chain, representing a deadly and growing worldwide health risk for patients and a costly violation of intellectual property rights for pharmaceutical manufacturers. These drugs at best will not deliver the therapy they promise and at worst can endanger patients’ lives.
Thermo Scientific™ handheld Raman and NIR spectrometers can authenticate medication directly in the field, wherever pharmaceuticals are distributed. These easy-to-use analyzers enable a higher level of routine screening, reducing the backlogs associated with laboratory testing. Our analyzers can even confirm the authenticity of pharmaceuticals directly through sealed packaging.
Thermo Scientific analyzers can verify the chemical “fingerprint” of any pharmaceutical sample, ensuring counterfeit products stay out of the supply chain. Request a demo to see how.
