Advanced downstream bioprocessing

Duration: 5 days
Price: £3,750+VAT

Our advanced courses are aimed at those working in research and development, process development and those are who are already working in the sector, who want to gain a deeper understanding of the theory and techniques used in biomanufacturing, understand and experience state-of-the-art techniques and methodologies, and appreciate the current and future challenges in biomanufacturing.

  • Cytiva

Delivered in partnership with Cytiva and other industry leaders, this five-day course provides in-depth training in downstream bioprocess operations as carried out in biomanufacturing, with an emphasis on biopharmaceuticals and advanced therapies. Advances in product recovery and purification technologies and will be presented by experts with the opportunity to discuss case studies and applications. There is an emphasis on hands-on practical sessions covering topics such as design of experiments, harvest, ultrafiltration, diafiltration, viral clearance and chromatography.

Learning outcomes:

  • Gain practical and industry focused knowledge of harvest principles and techniques.
  • Develop an in depth understanding of chromatography and resin formats and apply this understanding to hands-on scenarios.
  • Advance your knowledge of crossflow filtration processes through hands-on operation, demonstration and analysis of data received from an example process.
  • Evaluate advanced technologies and applications including periodic counter-current chromatography and viral filtration.
  • Apply the advances in DSP to the challenges of scale up, GMP compliance and automation.

Who should attend:

  • Scientists, technical staff, engineers, and managers with at least 3 years’ experience within the biotechnology industry wishing to increase their knowledge of downstream operations in a modern bioprocessing plant, through lectures and hands-on training.
