Attend this on-demand webinar and learn how handheld and portable Near Infrared (NIR), Raman and FTIR spectroscopic technologies can be effective and useful tools to assess the quality of diversified multivitamin products in the market.
The global nutrition market, including dietary supplements, has been maintaining a constant strong sector over the past few years. Dietary supplements have gained great success in many parts of the country. The US is rowing at 7.5%, China at 11.9%, and Latin America, at 12.9%.
However, the counterfeit, adulterated and substandard dietary supplements have also become a major problem throughout the world.
A portable analyzer of Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR) using attenuated total reflectance (ATR) sampling was used to screen potential adulterants and illegal additives in dietary supplements.
The controlled substance of Sibutramine Hydrochloride was identified in the dietary supplement samples for weight loss using this FTIR-ATR technology.
The result is consistent with Liquid Chromatography Tandem Mass Spectrometry (LC-MS) testing results.
Handheld and portable Near Infrared (NIR), Raman and FTIR spectroscopic technologies were used to assess the quality of diversified multivitamin products in the market.
