Prescription Pill Identification


“Prescription drug abuse continues to be the nation’s fastest growing drug problem. The abuse of controlled prescription drugs (CPDs) poses a significant drug threat to the United States and places a considerable burden on law enforcement and public health resources.”  

-US Department of Justice:  The National Drug Intelligence Center’s final 2013 National Drug Threat Assessment Summary


With a database of over 3,600 CPDs, law enforcement agencies rely on Centice technology to  help them identify and combat CPD abuse.    The library includes the most abused substances including: methadone, hydromorphone, meperidine, oxycodone, Adderall and Ritalin. And, Centice keeps keeps up with the top abused prescription drugs and the pharmaceutical library is updated on a quarterly basis.

“This piece of equipment is essentially a one stop shop…with this device we can very quickly tell what we are going to collect, essentially cutting our evidence investigation time in half.”
