Identification in and out of the lab

Raman products from Metrohm can work in either a field or laboratory setting to identify fentanyl. These instruments can aid in law enforcement establishing cause for an arrest or help work through the backlog of samples taken from crime scenes daily. Put Raman in front of other analytical tools to help screen samples before you waste valuable time and resources on other analysis tools.
