What is Process Analytical Technology!
Process analytical technology (PAT) has been defined by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as a mechanism to design, analyze, and control pharmaceutical manufacturing processes through the measurement of Critical Process Parameters (CPP) which affect Critical Quality Attributes (CQA).
The concept actually aims at understanding the processes by defining their CPPs, and accordingly monitoring them in a timely manner (preferably in-line or on-line) and thus being more efficient in testing while at the same time reducing over-processing, enhancing consistency and minimizing rejects.
Generally, the PAT initiative from FDA is only one topic within the broader initiative of “Pharmaceutical cGMPs for the 21st century – A risk based approach”.
We have divided PAT in to two parts – Instruments and Services
