In the world of Forensic Analysis, purity is an important calculation. Using UV-Vis as a rapid screening technique for methamphetamine allows labs to optimize their time which is critical due to increase caseloads. The Cary 60 and 18-cell changer or fiber optic probe is ideal for this application. This presentation will look at the mechanics behind using the Cary 60 to determine the purity of a methamphetamine sample.
