Upstream Pilot Plant

Upstream Processing Operations Course

This 2-day course gives a detailed introduction to the upstream operations in a biopharmaceutical production process used in the development of recombinant protein for human therapeutic use. This will include both hands-on practical and theory components.

During this course trainees will be introduced to cell culture technique using small scale shake flasks. Trainees will then gain hands on practical experience on 150L stainless steel bioreactors using detailed experimental procedures and SOPs to prepare and run a steam in place sterilisation on the 150L bioreactor. Trainees will then build on the knowledge and experience gained during the course theory and practical sessions and start a production batch on the 30L stainless steel bioreactor.

Suitable For:

This course is designed for operators, technical staff, engineers and managers wishing to increase their knowledge of the upstream operations in a modern bioprocessing plant.
