The aim was to develop fast, cheap, non-destructive methods of detecting counterfeit Levitra® tablets using near-infrared (NIR) spectroscopy.
Different batches of authentic Levitra® were purchased from pharmacies and counterfeit tablets were obtained from the Busan Regional KFDA. They were scanned using a FOSS NIRSystems 6500 spectrometer fitted .. The access to the whole abstract and if available the presentation file is available to FIP members and to congress participants of that specific congress.
