Digital Course: Ensuring Operational Excellence in Bioprocessing

CONFERENCE SERIES: Bioprocess & Manufacturing 

Recorded at: The Bioprocessing Summit 


Order DVD2012 SC3 DVD Cover About this Course: 

Researchers need to be ever more productive to meet the demands of a burgeoning biomedical industry.  As cell culture reaches greater productivity, pressures increase downstream to keep up with production.  Traditional approaches and techniques consistently require innovation to streamline tasks, while at the same time, costs need to be contained or reduced.

Operational Excellence strategies are being employed in bioproduction to drive innovation, increase production, and cut time as well as costs.  This digital course provides an overview of current Operational Excellence strategies, and how they are applied in bioprocessing.

Topics covered include: 

  • Quality by Design (QbD)
  • Design of Experiment (DoE)
  • Process Analytical Technology (PAT)
  • Continuous Improvement
  • Lean Manufacturing
  • Six Sigma
  • Regulatory perspectives and guidance

Take advantage of the experiences and insights from these learned instructors, who share case studies and actual results.  Take the time to add to your toolbox of skills and knowledge, and learn how experts in the field are staying ahead of the competition.

About the Conference: 

Each year, Boston hosts CHI’s "The Bioprocessing Summit" which focuses on the most pressing challenges of bioproduction. From cell line selection and transfection, to biopreservation, scale-up and bioreactor design, this event explores the bioprocesses that continually consume time and resources. The six meetings comprising the Summit provide a close-up look at the current strategies and innovations for optimizing bioprocesses while mitigating risk and ensuring bottom-line quality.

Rather than ‘mile-high’ perspectives, the Summit experts examine the steps and protocols they have refined to help you with your work at the bench, and reveal their engineering and process breakthroughs that move bioprocessing into the future. The event features interactive small-group discussions, exhibits, panel discussions, extensive poster display, and networking with colleagues from around the world.
