With a struggling economy, rising drug costs and an aging population using ever more prescription medicines, the need for inspection to differentiate counterfeit pharmaceuticals from authentic drugs has never been more important. Imitation drugs currently cost pharmaceutical companies an estimated $46 billion annually and carry a burden of liability and damaged reputations. Of greater concern, however, is the global risk to health and the rising death rate from ingested counterfeit medicines.

Recent advances in the field of X-ray diffraction now make it possible to introduce XRD analysis as a portable inspection tool for the purpose of phase identification and quantification of counterfeit pharmaceuticals.

Assisting various worldwide government agencies in their drive to combat the trafficking of fraudulent medications, inXitu is pleased to introduce a tailored version of its field portable XRD analyzer, TERRA. Completely contained and ready for operation in remote environments and at all points along the global pharmaceutical supply chain, Terra is well suited to the rapid determination of illegally manufactured medicines. In as little as two minutes Terra can perform qualitative and quantitative XRD analysis to validate pharmaceutical authenticity. An application report is available on request.

inXitu Inc. (inxitu.com) is a leader in portable XRD/XRF based instrumentation. They specialize in developing the technologies required to enable the next generation of scientific instruments used for materials analysis. The technology used in the Terra portable XRD analyzer received the prestigious R&D 100 award and has been chosen to fly on the Mars Science Laboratory, Rover, scheduled for launch in 2011.

inXitu’s powder handling methods can dramatically improve the quality of XRD data while reducing the requirements for sample preparation. inXitu’s patented technique makes possible quality XRD data to be collected regardless of the grain size of the sample. Grain sizes up to 400 um can be tested producing data normally obtained with micron size particles.

Incorporating key technologies from their portable XRD instrumentation and advanced sample handling techniques, the company has developing solutions targeted for identification and analysis in the areas of mining, soils, rock, explosives, pharmaceuticals, forensics, art and archaeological materials. This complete range of instruments offer performance comparable to laboratory XRD systems with the benefit of portability, significantly reduced sample preparation and reduced cost.
