Attendees actively participate in a full biomanufacturing process that includes the following unit operations:
- Cell culture operations
- Media preparation/seed inoculums
- Aseptic processing in biosafety cabinet
- Buffer preparation
- Tangential flow concentration and diafiltration
- Purification process (column chromatography)
- Column packing and qualification
- Filtration and integrity testing
- Analytical instrumentation and lab calculations
Once the hands-on processing section of the course begins, participants will be divided into small groups. These groups will rotate through the appropriate unit operations, each led by an instructor who is a subject matter expert from industry. The unique design of this certificate program features not only learning the technical and scientific principles of each unit operation, but also performing each operation under simulated cGMP conditions.
This program has been designed to allow the participants to network with the instructors, who are subject matter experts. Some of these instructors are also hiring managers from biomanufacturing organizations who need to employ trained and skilled individuals to enhance their workforces.
