author/source: Metrohm AG


From pills and powders to large smuggling operations, Metrohm helps you identify fentanyl.

Metrohm is pleased to announce the release of their new website dedicated to the identification of fentanyl. is an overview of Metrohm’s capability to detect and identify fentanyl using Raman spectroscopy. This site demonstrates the power of Raman products from Metrohm in various real-world situations – where clear, accurate answers are essential.


Finding a problem is the first step to solving it.

Fentanyl is often mixed with safe everyday items for distribution. From candy to over-the-counter medications, dealers will use any method necessary to hide their illegal activities. Our SERS technology expands our ability to identify fentanyl at very low, yet hazardous levels that could be hiding in plain sight.


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. Utilize Raman to  screen samples before you waste valuable time and resources on other analysis tools.
