About the BETC
A Pilot-Scale Biomanufacturing Facility
Funded in part by a grant from the Massachusetts Life Sciences Center, the WPI Biomanufacturing Education and Training Center is a fully functional Biomanufacturing pilot plant, providing hands-on training and educational opportunities for the multi-layered workforce needed to produce medicines and research compounds using engineered living cells. Industry experts worked closely with WPI faculty at every step of the Center’s development, from facility planning to curriculum design.
Industry-standard process areas within the Center include:
- Equipment preparation and sterilization
- Buffer and media preparation
- Fermentation and cell culture
- Protein capture
- Laboratory analytics
Education and Training for the Life Sciences Industry
