COURSE OVERVIEW

This course focusses on giving a basic 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 two separate modules:

Module 1: Basic course: Introduction to PAT (1-day module)
&
Module 2: Basic data-analysis and modeling (1.5-day module)

Requirements
Basic understanding of spectroscopy and (bio)pharmaceutical processes
&
Basic understanding of coding and programming (python)


MODULE 1: BASIC COURSE: INTRODUCTION TO PAT

Theoretical

The trainee will get a general introduction to PAT and the common (non-)spectroscopic sensors, learning how, when and where these tools can provide a benefit.

Spectroscopic sensors
&
Non-spectroscopic sensors (Univariate/Multivariate)
&
Hyperspectral imaging
&
PAT in R&D/Process Validation/QbD
&
Regulatory aspects
&
Multivariate data-analysis

Practical

The trainee will get the chance to see how PAT tools can be used/implemented and how this translates in a practical approach to acquire relevant process information.
Some of the tools that will be demonstrated are:

NIR
&
Raman
&
FLIR

MODULE 2: BASIC DATA-ANALYSIS AND MODELING

Theory through practice

Using spectroscopic data, the teacher will go through different aspects of PAT and model development together with the attendee.

General introduction to Python
&
Data preparation and exploration
&
Introduction to modeling
&
Process control based on PAT
