Ahura sales top $100m threshold15-Sep-2009
Ahura Scientific has chalked up sales of more than $100m since it first launched its handheld analytical instruments in 2005, and says its equipment is now used in more than 100 pharmaceutical facilities around the world.
The company poneered the use of handheld Raman spectrometers that can rapidly identify and authenticate chemicals and other substances in the field, for example in the goods-in bay of a manufacturing facility.
The company entered the pharmaceutical field in 2007 with its TruScan device, designed to ensure the safety of the supply chain through raw material verification and anti-counterfeit measures. The instrument can scan through sealed packaging, including bottles or blister packs, without opening them.
"Currently, nine out of the top 10 pharmaceutical companies (by revenue) have actively deployed TruScan for raw material verification and anti-counterfeit activities," said the firm in a press statement.
