New book: An introduction to Multivariate Data Analysis, including Process Analytical Technology (PAT) and Quality by Design (QbD)


Oslo, Norway. February 15th, 2018 - We are pleased to announce an all updated 6th Edition of the best selling book on chemometrics and Multivariate Analysis. This long-anticipated book was co-authored by Frank Westad, Chief Scientific Officer at CAMO, and is currently the most up-to-date resource on chemometrics and Multivariate Data Analysis (MVA).

This book will serve as a fantastic reference tool for any chemometrician, data scientist or researcher and offers:

  • A smooth and user-friendly introduction to chemometrics and MVA, both from a theoretical and practical point of view
  • Detailed explanations and illustrative examples to help understand and put newfound knowledge into use
  • An introduction to topics like Process Analytical Technology (PAT), Quality by Design (QbD) and Theory of Sampling (TOS)
  • All updated examples and case stories from previous versions of the book
  • The book can be used regardless of what Multivariate Analysis tool used


“An excellent book to introduce chemometrics in a smooth and user-friendly way, both from a theoretical as well as a practical point of view. It is certainly good supporting material for chemometric teaching at undergraduate and graduate levels in chemistry and assuredly in many related scientific fields, and a very good self-learning basis for anyone wanting to use chemometric methods in industry or academia.” Anna de Juan, Universitat de Barcelona and Romà Tauler, IDAEA-CSIC
