Project description

This project aims at developing and validating a process analytical technology (PAT) system for a new continuous pharmaceutical from-powder-to-tablet process (Consigma). Process analyzers supplying multivariate information will be applied to monitor in-line the critical and product quality aspects. Process control methods will be developed allowing continuous steering of the process, hence guiding the process towards its desired end product.
