The need for process analytical technology (PAT) to optimize pharmaceutical and fine chemical production processes has increased steadily in recent years. Such technology enables real-time monitoring of reactions, providing immediate data on critical process-control parameters. If problems arise during the reaction, the parameters can be modified before the batch is completed. This results in energy and material savings and reduces product sampling. In addition, it ensures optimal product quality.
