Importance of synTQ for data-driven future of pharma and biotech on show at Smart Lab US

02nd November 2021
Optimal Industrial Technologies will present the key role that a Process Analytical Technology (PAT) knowledge manager can play in Pharma 4.0 and Lab 4.0 applications at Smart Lab, Automation & Technology Virtual USA. During the event, taking place on 16th November, the company will demonstrate how the use of the synTQ PAT knowledge management platform is essential to embracing the future of pharmaceutical and biotech R&D.

The Smart Lab, Automation & Technology Virtual event offers a key platform for pharmaceutical companies to learn more about how innovative digital technologies can drive efficiencies and competitiveness in the sector. By leveraging the power of data, businesses can improve decision making to ultimately enhance the productivity, quality and efficiency of their processes.

Optimal will contribute to the forum by showcasing the benefits of implementing a data-driven PAT framework in the laboratory by using a PAT knowledge manager. The utilisation of such technology in the laboratory enables regulatory compliant bi-directional communications with disparate instruments. These can be simple or complex, with critical metadata being added to each data source. This approach brings all connected devices within a regulatory compliant framework, where actions and results are traceable and recorded in full compliance with data integrity demands. Workflows can be set up to assist in complex or repetitive tasks, and the quality prediction capability coupled with data analytics enables the establishment of critical information and knowledge.

PAT can deliver key benefits to many different departments within pharmaceutical companies, from R&D and analytical laboratories all the way to commercial-scale manufacturing lines. During the virtual event, attendees will be able to learn more about the advantages of this framework by visiting Optimal’s virtual stand. The company’s experts will also be giving a presentation titled ‘Leveraging PAT Knowledge Management Technology in Your Laboratories’, taking place at 11:05 (PST). A major highlight will be the PAT knowledge management platform, synTQ. This is currently used by over 60% of global pharmaceutical majors and has enabled businesses to triple throughput while slashing waste, reworks and cycle times.

Visitors to Smart Lab, Automation & Technology Virtual will also be able to schedule individual meetings with Optimal’s experts to discuss their specific applications and how synTQ can help.

Martin Gadsby, CEO at Optimal Industrial Technologies, comments: “We look forward to showcasing the importance of PAT in smart facilities. When combined with our leading knowledge management platform, synTQ, a PAT framework can truly become a game-changing solution that is able to boost competitiveness like no other technology. We invite anyone interested in learning more about how we can help set up highly effective systems and lines to get in touch with our specialists during the event.”
