"Enabling Continuous Processing": free knowledge day  31st Jan

Published on: Friday, 03 January 2014

The Pharmaceutical Manufacturing Technology Centre (PMTC) is an EI/IDA funded Technology Centre to assist the Irish Pharmaceutical Industry to improve its competiveness. The initial focus of the centre is on development of Advanced Analytical Technology solutions to provide real time, relevant data and information which enables high levels of process and product quality control, with faster concurrent and end product testing. One of the funded themes “Enable and Control of Continuous Processing” is to establish best practice through Quality by Design (QbD) and Process Analytical Technology (PAT) initiatives to achieve a consistent quality product. This knowledge day will have internatinal and national experts presenting in the following areas: quality risk management, PAT implementation and QbD in product development and regulatory affairs.

While the event is free, booking is essential and can be made by contacting Dr.Sandra Lenihan by email: by 24th January 2014.  Please indicate if you will attend the talks, the workshop or both.
