This course focusses on giving a thorough introduction about the implementation of PAT tools in the (bio)pharmaceutical industry.
This course is given in an interactive manner (both theoretical and hands-on) and can be divided into three separate modules:
Module 1: Basic course: Introduction to PAT implementation (1-day module)
Module 2: Advanced course: Data-analysis and modelling (Python) (2-day module)
Module 3: Specialized courses (1/2-day module)
Basic understanding of spectroscopy and (bio)pharmaceutical processes
Basic understanding of coding and programming (python)
MODULE 1: BASIC COURSE
The trainee will get an in-depth explanation about the common (non-)spectroscopic PAT sensors and will learn how, when and where these tools can provide a benefit.
Spectroscopic PAT tools
Non-spectroscopic PAT tools
PAT in R&D
The trainee will get the chance to see how PAT tools can be implemented and how this translates in a practical approach to acquire relevant process information.
Some of the tools that will be demonstrated are:
Other PAT devices
MODULE 2: ADVANCED COURSE
This module looks at the steps that follow after a successful implementation of the PAT tools. The trainee will learn on how to analyze and use the acquired data in multivariate models.
Introduction to Python
Linear and non-linear modelling
During the course, the trainee will use placebo data sets to learn how to analyze and use the data.
MODULE 3: SPECIALIZED COURSES
In this module, the goal is to highlight specific examples, using real spectroscopic data in the form of use-cases.
Model predictive control
Unit operation-specific spectroscopic data-analysis
Bring your data to course day*
*The trainee has the option to bring his/her own data to the course. Together with the tutor they can go through the data and learn how to proceed.
A detailed overview of the different modules can be found in the following document.
