Short Courses / Introduction to Upstream Processing

COURSE DESCRIPTION

Introduction to Upstream Processing will include both hands-on practical and theory components covering cell vial thaw, aseptic techniques, cell counting, metabolic analysis, scale up, and bioreactor operation. Equipment such as wave bag reactors, stirred-tank reactors, as well as single use bioreactors will all be utilized to reflect the current state of biopharmaceutical manufacturing technology.

Current Offerings:

October 14, 2022 (Theory) & October 17-18, 2022 (Practical)

November 10, 2022 (Theory) & November 14-15, 2022 (Practical)

AUDIENCE

This course is designed for operators, technical staff, engineers, and managers wishing to increase their knowledge of the upstream operations in a modern bioprocessing plant.

TOPICS

  • Overview of the biopharmaceutical production process
  • Mammalian cell culture aseptic techniques
  • Analysis of cell growth and nutrients in culture
  • Cell culture scale up equipment including shake flasks and disposable bioreactors
  • Aseptically set-up and operate a 200L bioreactor
  • Strategies for media preparation in single-use bioreactors

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

Upon completion of this module the learner will be able to:

 

  • Describe the practice of culturing mammalian cells in an aseptic environment from small to large scale
  • List the equipment required for scale up of mammalian cultures
  • Describe the cell expansion and inoculation methods in single-use systems
  • Use GDocP to follow and complete SOPs, batch records and log books
  • Count cells using both an automated and manual method
  • Interpret the nutrient and metabolite levels of cell culture medium
  • Aseptically prepare and run a 200L single-use bioreactor

ASSESSMENT

A competency-based assessment will be undertaken at the end of the course. This will certify proficiency in the theory and practical skills.
