PLAINVIEW, N.Y., Oct. 21, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- tec5USA, a leading designer and manufacturer of in-line process spectrometers, announced plans to host a free webinar on November 10th discussing the growing problem of counterfeit medications and their handheld solution for detection. The webinar will feature Dr. Michelle Pressler, Business Development Manager and Application Scientist at tec5USA. Dr. Pressler has an extensive background in the biotech, pharmaceutical and life sciences industries, and is a subject matter expert in molecular spectroscopy with comprehensive application knowledge.
The presence of substandard and counterfeit pharmaceuticals is growing at a staggering rate
"The presence of substandard and counterfeit pharmaceuticals is growing at a staggering rate, and it's not only costing companies billions of dollars every year, but it's also leading to deaths worldwide," commented Dr. Pressler.
tec5USA and Spectral Engines technology has made it possible to detect for dangerous counterfeits using a cost effective, small device that can deployed at multiple stages in the distribution chain, ensuring safety for end-users. Historically, solutions for detecting substandard or counterfeit pharmaceuticals had been prohibitively expensive, resulting in most facilities only employing detection devices at a single point in the distribution chain and making it more difficult to eliminate counterfeits. With the introduction of the NIRONE Devices by tec5USA's sister company Spectral Engines, there is now a lower-cost, highly effective solution that can be easily deployed at multiple stages in the supply chain. The device provides analysis via an app and powerful, cloud-based chemometric analysis.
