Notice that as some substances in drugs may be found in a compressed powder form, it is quite possible that SCiO may miss the active ingredient if that part of the sample wasn’t scanned.
As with all potential applications, feasibility testing would need to be completed along with development of the corresponding molecular sensing models and a corresponding app.
