PAT: In-Depth Focus 2014

Posted: 5 January 2015 |

This PAT In-Depth Focus explores current challenges posed by the slow uptake of Process Analytical Technology within the pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical industries. The advantages of incorporating PAT into the pharmaceutical process are highlighted in two informative articles, and possible solutions to its lack of popularity surmised…

PAT In-Depth Focus 2014
  • A cultural change is needed for PAT to achieve manufacturing excellence
    Prabir Basu, Pharmaceutical Manufacturing, OPEX and cGMP Consultant and CPhI Panel Member
    Process Analytical Technology (PAT) greatly enhances the drug development process and is a much-needed process advancement to the pharmaceutical industry. CPhI panel member Prabir Basu summarises his thoughts on how PAT can be used to help push forward standards in manufacturing practices. He believes that for PAT to fully achieve its potential, cultural changes are needed across the industry, since on its own, it is just a tool and needs to be used in conjunction with other measures and a wider culture of achieving excellence…
  • The role of PAT in biopharmaceuticals production
    João A. Lopes, University of Lisbon
    This article discusses the latest achievements in the implementation of Process Analytical Technology (PAT) to assist in the monitoring of biopharmaceuticals manufacturing processes. Biopharmaceuticals can still currently be considered as a major challenge to the pharmaceutical manufacturer. Their production raises considerable risks associated with robustness and cost effectiveness of supply chains. This couples with the increasing growth of personalised and stratified medicines and even the need to reduce investment capital and production costs. Ensuring PAT systems and related underpinning science are both flexible and performant for biopharmaceuticals production processes is a major challenge…
