Israeli startup analyzes medicines’ content thanks to a miniature spectrometer associated to a laser

Israeli startup, Consumer Physics, has implemented new, cutting-edge technology for various uses by miniaturizing a spectrometer to the size of a keyring and pairing it with an infrared laser. The tool can make life simpler for diabetics, for example, by counting calories or analyzing the nutritional value of foodstuffs. It could also potentially be used for analyzing ingredients in medicines, meaning that fake and real medicines could be told apart. The ultimate goal is to integrate the technology into a smartphone.
