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 the presentation file is available to FIP members and to congress participants of that specific congress.
