The application of DART® as a choice analytical tool for rapid analysis of counterfeit pharmaceuticals is discussed. DART® technology shows considerable promise for rapid, ‘investigator friendly’ studies of ingredients contained within pharmaceuticals. Its user friendly approach renders it as an attractive, rapid, labour saving tool in comparison to its traditional IR counterpart.
