Recognition of counterfeit medicines by near-infrared spectroscopy

Principal component analysis and multivariate image analysis were used to analyse the data.

Principal component analysis and multivariate image analysis were used to analyse the data.

Sulaf Assi and colleagues have developed a non-destructive method combining chemometrics and near-infrared spectroscopy to identify potential counterfeit medicines.
