ConsiGma® PAT Test Rig

This standalone module allows you to start developing your PAT models for a pharmaceutical continuous manufacturing process offline during the early stages of R&D.

PAT Test Rig

LightHouse Probe®

In a continuous manufacturing process, process analytical technology (PAT) tools are often used as an integral part of the control strategy. Model development can, however, be time-consuming.

The ConsiGma®PAT test rig allows customers to start PAT model development offline, long before the entire plant is installed, in a set-up similar to the production environment.

Standard Configuration

  • Material hopper
  • Powder Dosing Valve (PDV)
  • Manual Lighthouse Probe®

Available Options

  • NIR probe and spectrometer

Main Benefits

  • Offline development of PAT method 
  • Minimal powder required 
  • Identical probe used in R&D and production
