Now Enrolling: Microbial Fermentation Development, Scale-Up, and Manufacturing

The successful implementation of microbial fermentation technology requires optimization of a number of variables. A clear understanding of all aspects of this technology assures that upstream scientists and technicians are capable and confident in their handling of these processes.

This course employs extensive hands-on laboratory work using both single-use and stainless steel equipment. Participants will thaw seed vials and perform scale-up operations from a shake flask to a bench top fermenter, to a pilot scale fermenter. Participants will also learn the fundamentals of microbial growth, cell line development and media composition and selection.
