MORRISVILLE, N.C., Feb. 14 (UPI) -- An enhanced drug identification kit for use in the field has been introduced by the Centice Corp. of North Carolina.

The company's Mobile Field Lab-3000 system, using Raman spectroscopy and computational sensor technology, rapidly scans a substance and creates a unique spectral fingerprint of the substance.

Centice said the "unique chemical fingerprint" is compared to Centice's embedded proprietary database of more than 3,600 illegal narcotics.

Enhancements to the system include automatic database updates; Improved matching algorithms that strengthen the accuracy and sensitivity of the measurements used in matching sample spectra data to database spectra; and a more rugged housing for the mobile system.

"These enhancements are part of our ongoing MFL-3000 product strategy," Centice Chief Executive Officer and President Prasant Potuluri, said. "Centice is dedicated to providing law enforcement with a scientific tool, using an SWGDRUG Category A science, they can leverage at the scene to immediately identify confiscated substances.
