Unfortunately, food adulteration is more common than most people realize. With Misa, investigators take the technology to the sample and obtain dependable results in seconds.

Misa goes beyond traditional Raman capabilities. While Raman spectroscopy is a bulk materials identification solution, Misa can detect materials that are present in parts-per-million concentrations even in complex food samples.
