Metrohm is pleased to announce a substantial upgrade to the Illicit and General Materials Library. They now have one of the most comprehensive drug libraries available on any Raman system, including hundreds of fentanyl analogues and novel psychoactive substances (NPS). All spectra were collected by Metrohm experts on Metrohm instruments. The Illicit and General Materials Library will improve material ID and make all Metrohm’s Raman products more effective screening tools.

The Illicit and General Materials Library contains a wealth of new data that will appeal to users in a broad range of industries. This library features over 2500 spectra for narcotics and common chemicals. It significantly improves accuracy of matching and analysis of mixtures. It is a comprehensive, up-to-date, high-resolution library for drug identification. It includes NPS and illicit, narcotic, prescription and over-the-counter drugs. The inclusion of familiar substances supports identification of commonly encountered materials and provides intuitive results for every user.
