The current trends in process

The current trends in process analytical technology (PAT) are Infra-red, Spetroscopy, thermal, optical, and various physical and microbiological identification techniques are emerging fast. In future PAT will take over QC as Q-PAT.

Thanks. I wonder how many

Thanks. I wonder how many companies will be left behind as these type of practices become the norm.
