Centice Corporation is creator of the Mobile Field Lab (MFL)-3000, a product that enables narcotic squads and drug task forces to quickly and easily perform drug identification in the field without destroying evidence. Simply place and cover the unknown material (solid, liquid or powder) on the portable device and Centice’s patented Raman Spectroscopy technology rapidly scans it and creates a unique spectral fingerprint of the substance. This “unique chemical fingerprint” is then compared to Centice’s embedded proprietary database of over 3,600 illegal narcotics, cutting agents and controlled prescription drugs to ensure objective and reliable identification.
Centice Corporation is a leader in delivering unique technology and systems for identification and verification of chemical substances. With substantial capability in our MFL-3000 product which focuses on chemical identification of narcotics, cutting agents and controlled prescription drugs (CPD), the company brings new capabilities to field narcotic officers and drug interdiction agents. Operating worldwide through a network of distributors and support organizations the company sells to governments, non-governmental agencies (NGO) and local law enforcement departments. By leveraging an expertise in applied Raman Spectroscopy and patented Coded Aperture design our engineers deliver on faster acquisition times, greater sensor reliability and more sensitive spectra data acquisition. The company is headquartered in Morrisville, NC and founded in 2004 from technology created at Duke University.
