Successful start of our PAT-Forum Webinar Series 2024

Our first PAT-Forum Online Webinar in 2024 took place on February 14th. We were able to recruit Dr. Chad M. Shade, a very experienced process chemist, who shared his valuable PAT experiences with the webinar participants on the subject “Transforming the Chemical Manufacturing Industry through Process Analytical Technology: A Retrospective”. He discussed the application of process analytical technology in the chemical industry and gave interesting insights into its implementation.
