Course description

Bioreactors in Biotech: Strategies for Selection & Optimisation

Bioreactors, what are they and how do they work? 

Bioreactors are the pillars of bioprocessing, supporting the production of the biomass and the therapeutic product. It is vital that those responsible for operating bioreactors understand the intricacies of their functionality to ensure they can optimize their performance and maximize the bioprocess efficiency.

Over two weeks, this course will explore functionality, including the inoculum expansion process and designing control loops, as well as consider strategies to select the best bioreactor for your product. 

In an interactive environment, you will also learn best practices for avoiding contamination, and characterise your raw materials to ensure a sterile operation throughout.

Suitability - Who should attend?

This course is relevant to both professionals working within biopharmaceutical manufacturing as well as those who will be specifically working with bioreactors. It is also applicable to the wider biotechnology audience if they interact with bioreactors in their role. Relevant departments may include:

  • Upstream Processing
  • Downstream Processing
  • Bioreactor Maintenance
  • Cleaning
  • Quality Control
  • Process Analytics
  • Process Engineering

Outcome / Qualification etc.
