This five-day course provides in-depth training in upstream bioprocessing operations carried out in biomanufacturing, with an emphasis on biopharmaceuticals and advanced therapies. There is an emphasis on hands-on practical sessions covering from the lab bench to the bioreactor. This is supported by virtual reality training to underpin the operational concepts required.

Learning outcomes:

  • Gain in depth knowledge of process formats available in upstream processing.
  • Learn in detail the principles behind cell line development, selection and quality.
  • Apply gained knowledge of Critical Quality Attributes and regulatory requirements to process characterisation and automation.
  • Contextualise scale up and media screening values in practical exercise formats.

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 upstream operations in a modern bioprocessing plant, through lectures and hands-on training.
