A Match Made in Heaven

Emerging technologies in process control can lead to a quantum leap in process intensification that will help pharmaceutical industries thrive, even in an increasingly competitive global market. A particularly powerful and compelling application consists of combining factory automation and robotics with process analytical technologies (PAT). By implementing such a system, drug manufacturers can become more accurate and agile. This will satisfy compliance while ensuring efficiency in their R&D and manufacturing operations.

Ensuring high-quality, effective drugs that meet regulatory requirements and customers’ expectations are challenges that the pharma and life sciences sectors constantly need to address by means of robust and comprehensive quality assurance and process control strategies. The digitisation and automation of laboratories and drug manufacturing processes can be a powerful ally to these industries, specifically, the cooperation of PAT and robotics.

This establishes a real-time link between process control and process automation, which can be used to promptly implement quality assurance and manufacturing decisions. In this environment, the physical information from sensors and analytical instruments are passed on to a higher-level system for adaptive decision making (i.e., PAT knowledge management) that communicates with industrial or collaborative robots to act promptly on the basis of the decision taken.
