Quality Assurance and Control

Microbial Fermentation Workshop

Developed in partnership with UC San Diego's Center for Continuing Education in Biosciences (CCE|BIO), this 3-day workshop, August 12-14, is designed to provide a deep dive into bioreactor operations for microbial fermentations and equip you with the knowledge and practical skills needed to optimize your processes. You will also explore bioprocess simulation, economics and modern techniques used in applying process analytical technology in manufacturing.

Also included... Fermentor Demonstrations by representatives from DCI Biolafitte!

Workshop Objectives:

  • Apply biological principles to problems involving microbial growth systems
  • Comprehend modern techniques used in applying process analytical technology in manufacturing
  • Examine bioreactor operations in microbial cell systems and the scale-up of bioreactors
  • Analyze problems encountered from the scale-up of microbial cells from bench scale to fermenter
  • Strategically plan and analyze experiments by exploring current approaches

Who Should Attend?
The workshop is intended for professionals with fundamental experience in fermentation who wish to expand their current knowledge, improve their ability to problem solve, and contribute to the experimental design process and modeling of bioprocesses within bioreactors.
