Early Stage Upstream Process Development
Upstream processing refers to the first phase in biomolecule production. This process involves a series of intricate steps which must be carefully followed to ensure a successful transition to downstream processing.
Over the course of 5 weeks this course will walk you through the basics of early-stage upstream process development for mammalian and microbial products. The course will focus on USP planning, cell-line development, media selection and will finish with quality considerations to help you lay the foundations for a successful and productive bioprocess.
