Abstract

Cutting-edge technologies are new innovation introduced into regulatory industries or organisations to ease operations. In this thesis, therefore examines the efficiency of TruScan to determine the counterfeited medicines compare to HPLC which is the gold standard. More so, to assess the correlation between the results obtained using TruScanĀ® (Raman spectrometer) and those from the HPLC. It was realised at the end of the analysis that, TruScan has 88% efficient compare to HPL which is the gold standard could do. Also the device has the ability of 89% to detect that the product has passed when indeed it passed; again, it has 85% confirmatory that the drugs failed the Test when HPLC has already stated (see R-Language software results obtained in Chapter Four). In kappa agreement, the analysis shows that the device has 62% substantial agreement or correlation between HPLC. McNemar?s analysis also shows that there exists a relationship between TruScan and HPLC which is the gold standard.
