AutoChem - Process Analytical Technology (PAT)/Quality by Design (QbD)
Process Analytical Technology (PAT) has been implemented for years, particularly by the chemical industry for the control of chemical processes. More recently, PAT has become a cornerstone of the US Food and Drug Administration’s (US FDA) Quality by Design (QbD) initiative for both the design and control of quality processes. For this reason, the pharmaceutical industry is also active in utilizing PAT tools. PAT tools can be implemented in both the lab and the plant, with laboratory PAT focused more on the design of a quality process and with plant PAT focused on the monitoring and control of the process.
METTLER TOLEDO offers a wide range of laboratory and production (plant) PAT tools that have been used effectively for more than 20 years by thousands of chemists and chemical engineers across the globe. Our PAT tools are utilized by virtually every major manufacturer of pharmaceuticals, fine and specialty chemicals and petrochemicals. Our Technology and Application Consultants have an intimate knowledge of the challenges and applications faced by today’s scientist, and are ready to share their expertise to overcome your challenges today.
