The demand for better healthcare products is ever increasing. The technologies which were the best for producing the quality products few years back is no more so. The advent of new tools and technologies has given an opportunity for all the pharmaceutical producers to improve upon their quality standards. Process Analytical Technology is one among them. The application of Process Analytical Technology in pharmaceutical production checks the quality of the raw material attributes both physically and chemically, that too at-line, in-line or on-line, which was not possible earlier, thereby decreasing the chances of contamination and cross contamination. It also saves a huge amount of time and money required for sampling and analysis of the products. Overall Process Analytical Technology paves a way for producing a quality product thus satisfying the customer needs and creating a good brand image for the organization. In this article, Process Analytical Technology has been introduced briefly and its different tools have been discussed to illustrate how application of this technology ensures quality of the pharmaceutical products.
