Introduction to Design of Experiments (DoE) for Bioprocess Analysis and Optimization
Location:
  Golden LEAF BTEC 850 Oval Drive Raleigh, NC
Description:   Learn how to apply the fundamental principles of Design of Experiments (DoE) methods to the analysis and optimization of bioprocesses. DoE is critical to defining the design space for a process, which is central to the quality-by-design concepts presented in the ICH Guideline for Development and Manufacture of Drug Substances Q11. This course focuses on the application of DoE methods through the use of JMP statistical software, bioprocess case studies and hands-on laboratory activities. The case studies focus on microbial fermentation, chromatography and pharmaceutical product/process development and provide real data.

8:00 AM
Hands-On Single Use Processing for Biopharmaceuticals
Location:
 
Description:   This course will provide hands-on training in a single-use biomanufacturing process using mammalian cell culture and the latest technologies spanning upstream and downstream operations. Participants will gain laboratory experience in media and solution preparation (single-use mixing systems), cell culture (single-use bioreactors in both rocker and stirred-tank configurations), cell harvest (single-use centrifugation and depth filtration options), as well as downstream operations. In addition to extensive hands-on experience with the process, the course will also address many of the common concerns when implementing single use processes (i.e., sterile connections, environmental concerns/carbon footprint, business economics, and validation).

Applied Principles and Techniques of Depth Flow Filtration (DFF) and Tangential Flow Filtration (TFF) for BioPharm Downstream Purificatio
Location:
  Golden LEAF BTEC 850 Oval Drive Raleigh, NC
Description:   This course focuses on the fundamental principles and optimum applied techniques for depth flow filtration (DFF) and tangential flow filtration (TFF) used in biopharmaceutical downstream processes. Choose the course format that’s most useful for you—one day, three days, or a full four days. The one-day lecture is designed to help individuals gain a solid understanding of the parameters and factors that affect DFF and TFF membrane performance and product recovery for both cell clarification and UF/DF biopharmaceutical applications. During the three-day hands-on laboratory workshop, DFF and TFF application trials are performed using state-of-the-art benchtop systems. Data developed during these trials is applied to a real scale-up system problem and SOP. The principles and techniques presented in the prerequisite lecture course are applied in this workshop, which is limited to 12 participants.
