Now available as an eBook from Amazon>>

Counterfeit pharmaceuticals present a real threat to legitimate pharmaceutical manufacturers and can be potentially damaging to a  company’s reputation and financial position. This book describes the different analytical techniques that can be used to distinguish between genuine and counterfeit pharmaceutical products. A variety of techniques in spectroscopy and chromatography are covered and case studies are included.

This book is the second volume of a two volume series dealing with counterfeit and substandard pharmaceuticals. It deals with the technical approaches to stop this scourge, and Volume I examines the economic and financial side of this dilemma. It covers non-destructive testing, the use of sophisticated laboratory apparatus, and other quantitative anti-counterfeiting approaches.
