Optimal has had a strong presence in the PAT arena, (Process Analytical Technology), for many years, and we have developed the world leading PAT Data Management product – synTQ®, (synchronised Total Quality). This has been developed by our dedicated synTQ team, the development exercise including full lifecycle testing and documentation. The product is the most mature in the marketplace, and continues to be developed to provide our users with even more functionality & flexibility. We have a mature, global supply and support alliance agreement with Emerson Process Management® whereby the product can be supplied either directly from ourselves else via Emerson. The Emerson alliance provides clients with the reassurance that the product is fully underwritten by a multi billion dollar leading automation vendor, and can therefore be applied globally to all your development and manufacturing facilities with local support being available. This product is described in more detail in the synTQ® section of our products section on this website, but suffice to say it is a world-class product which is scaleable in size from the instrument to enterprise level, and despite the alliance with Emerson the product is, and will remain, automation and instrument vendor neutral in that it can connect just as well to a Siemens system as it can to an Emerson system. The product’s reputation is underlined by synTQ® being used by the FDA in Washington.
