Thermo Fisher Scientific and Siemens Combine Technologies for PAT Applications

  • The Thermo Scientific Antaris family of FT-NIR analyzers is being coupled with Siemens' SIPAT software platform for advanced process understanding and continuous control and improvement in drug development and manufacture. The companies point out that this combination allows for the use of process analysis not just in the lab but also in production.

    Antaris FT-NIR analyzers are built to include internal calibration standards, which allow instrument qualification without having to stop the process or remove the probe from the culture media. With features like a flex-pivot interferometer and pinned-in-place optics inherent in the analyzers, each scan is the same as the last one providing accurate, precise, and reliable measurements, according to Thermo Fisher Scientific.

    The SIPAT software supports PAT implementation, acquiring data from multiple analyzers and other data sources. It also supports process control whereby it can either focus on specific units or cover total batch quality to enable real-time product release.
