Practical Skills for Upstream Bioprocessing

  • Duration: 3 days
  • Price: £2,250 + VAT
  • Dates: Tuesday 7 May – Thursday 9 May 2024
    Tuesday 26 November – Thursday 28 November 2024

This 3-day course explores the common upstream bioprocessing approaches and practices utilised in modern biomanufacturing facilities.

Delivered alongside our expert industry partners, delegates will delve into the core cell culture principles of both adherent and suspension cells, single-use upstream technologies, scale-up strategies, bioreactor design and operation as well as process control and evaluation.

Training will be conducted in our Centre of Excellence facility housing cutting-edge laboratory instruments and benchtop-scale processing equipment, allowing delegates to gain vital hands-on practical exposure to industry-standard biomanufacturing processes and procedures.

Topics covered:

  • Cell culture expansion to bioreactors
  • Expression systems and cell requirements
  • Cell counting methods, validation and variation
  • Introduction to WAVE and Xcellerex bioreactors
  • Process control in bioreactors – PID control loops and process automation
  • Adherent cell cultivation
  • Process scale-up and technology transfer
  • Considerations for process optimisation
