The tool allows workers in the field, even in remote locations, to quickly, easily and cheaply identify suspect medicine.

The tool, simply named the Counterfeit Detector Device, Version 3, or CD-3, will be deployed and tested in Ghana this year and next. A second testing program is planned in a location yet to be determined
