GPHF-Minilab for quick detection of spurious AIDS, TB & Malaria drugs
Recently I came across the 2008 Update Manual of GPHF-Minilab. GPHF-Minilab provides a quick and short-cut solution to detect sub-standard/spurious drugs/medicines even in remote areas.
Global Pharma Health Fund (GPHF) of Germany is a charitable organisation and has just released 2008 Update Manual of GPHF-Minilab. This manual is a 'Concise Quality Control Guide on Essential Drugs and other Medicines'.
The manual has Colour Reaction Tests for 32 Products and Thin Layer Chromatographic Tests for 41 Products. GPHF-Minilab is useful for countries and locations where the menace of sub-standard/spurious drugs/medicines lead to sub therapeutic doses, drug resistance, and adverse reactions.
GPHF-Minilab manual includes procedures for testing the following AIDS, TB & Malaria drugs.
HIV/AIDS: Didanosine, Indinavir, Lamivudine, Nevirapine, Stavudine, Zidovudine
TB: Ethambutol, Isoniazid, Pyrazinamide, Rifampicin
Malaria: Amodiaquine, Artemether, Artesunate, Chloroquine, Lumefantrine, Mefloquine, Primaquine, Pyrimethamine, Quinine, Sulfadoxine
