Medicines Regulatory Authorities (MRAs) are the keystone for the majority of interventions to prevent, detect and remove poor quality medicines before they reach patients. Innovative portable devices hold promise for empowering medicine inspectors in screening medicine quality in supply systems. However, regulators lack information on their performance, limitations and cost-effectiveness. This project was undertaken as an independent evaluation and comparison of devices to provide evidence to allow MRAs to decide whether these new technologies are appropriate for screening of medicines quality in their countries.
