Optimal brings automation innovation to ISPE Barcelona 2017

13 April, 2017

Optimal Industrial Automation showcased its complete range of automation solutions at the ISPE Conference in Barcelona in April. With the theme of this year’s exhibition being ‘Pharmaceutical Manufacturing in 2025’ and the accelerating adoption of Industrial Automation’s synTQ process analytical technology (PAT) software by SMEs and global pharma majors going on right now, the timing was prescient.

One of the key subjects of discussion at ISPE Barcelona was how pharmaceutical product design is suited to automated manufacture; with synTQ one of the landmark products spurring the industry towards connecting lab development to continuous production, it is again highly relevant.

synTQ collects and processes data concerning product attributes and real-time process parameters and runs multivariate functions, with pre- and post-processing where appropriate. Information is then analysed and enacted upon via closed loop control in real-time, which allows the system to control product quality attributes during production.

The result is claimed to be the manufacture of a product of increased quality which is wholly compliant to regulatory standards, removing the need to subsequently test batches of product post production. This is said to enable continuous processing and the real-time release of pharmaceutical products, which in practice slashes the time to market.

Optimal also displayed its automation knowhow, with the UK-based business celebrating 30 years of success in automation this year. The company has gathered expertise in system integration, industrial databases, SCADA, networking and PLCs.

In addition, company personnel on stand shared knowledge on Optimal’s vision package synTI, a modular vision software framework that allows serialisation including easy inspection and verification operations when utilised with cameras, scanners or sensors.

The exhibition is managed by the International Society for Pharmaceutical Engineering, a non-profit organisation that aims to lead scientific, technical and regulatory development throughout pharmaceutical manufacturing. ISPE Barcelona gathers experts in their field, promoting discussion on everything from managing drug shortages to evolving automation platforms and regulations.
