LIVE Online Course

Gain a clear overview of upstream process development for successful transfer to downstream processing

Course Overview

Balancing the demands of product quality, process productivity and scalability remain the key challenges for professionals involved in upstream process development. This course will address these core issues for both mammalian and microbial products.

Starting with cell-line development, the course will move on to focus on media selection, screening, initial upstream process development and quality concerns to help you in laying the foundations for a successful and productive process. You will explore upstream equipment in-depth and start to consider process characterisation, performance validation and scale up. You will also discuss the needs of the downstream process, how collaboration between USP and DSP teams can be facilitated and how process transfer can be addressed.

Taught by Margit Holzer, an experienced bioprocess development expert, this course will deliver a wealth of examples and discussion to help you in your learning.

Live Online Academies

Gain real-time access to a subject matter expert delivering online training in a structured virtual classroom environment. Live online academies are virtual versions of some of our most popular face-to-face courses, delivered in bitesize sessions of 1.5-3 hours online.

Over 2 weeks students will learn through:

  • Live interactive bitesize sessions
  • Direct interaction with the trainer during live sessions
  • Participation in interactive features within sessions including polls, Q&A, break out rooms, tasks, case studies, and more
  • Revisiting recorded sessions with unlimited access for 30 days
  • Interaction with peers during live sessions and through the online forum

Timings and dates are subject to change - final confirmation will be provided with login details. Delegates will receive login instructions within a week of the course start date. If you have any questions please contact lifesciences-training@informa.com.
