Tablet identification: the new ‘chemist & druggist’ identification guide


Methods of tablet identification were fully discussed in the Bulletin last year.1 The most important change since then has been the publication last February of a new ‘Chemist & Druggist’ guide.2 It is designated Mark II to indicate complete revision, and is a useful set of rules for the game of spot the tablet. It enables one to identify 1771 products directly with the minimum of fuss by grouping tablets into collections of similar colour. It is a real improvement, but its 1771 identifications are lost amongst the profusion of preparations, of which there are many thousands.
