Authentication & Anti-Counterfeiting
Is it real? Is it safe? Is it worth the price I’m about to pay? According to the International Chamber of Commerce, counterfeiting is one of the fastest growing economic crimes, with an estimated annual cost of more than $1 trillion worldwide. Ocean Optics modular spectroscopy systems offer many ways to counter fraud in industry, in the food chain, and to ensure public safety. Some of the areas in which we work include:
Select from spectrometers, optical sensors and turnkey systems to detect substitution, dilution, contamination or adulteration of food products at every point within the food chain.
Value Validation & Brand Protection
Our reflection, fluorescence and Raman spectroscopy systems can be used to identify counterfeit art, historical objects and gems, and can be implemented in conjunction with optical dyes, markers and tags for brand protection.
From characterization of fluorescent features to analysis of pigments, inks and dyes, our modular systems and compact sensors enable document validation in the lab and field.
Ocean Optics has developed modular and field-portable systems for the detection of optical markers used in fuel authentication programs, including colored and fluorescent dyes and SERS-active tags.
We offer handheld Raman systems for use in the field by first responders, sensitive SERS substrates for trace detection, and flexible modular Raman systems for explosives analysis in the laboratory.
