Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s 8th Annual

Bioproduction: Scale, Bioreactors & Disposables

Making It Work

August 15-16, 2018


The 8th annual “Bioproduction” conference examines biologics production, including scale-down models, scaling up production, engineering bioreactors, single-use systems, and ensuring quality, within the context of increasing productivity. A holistic review of bioprocessing will be explored, as well as practical details, such as monitoring and analyzing processes, and looking in-depth into how bioreactors process cells. The conference will address robust manufacturing processes and next-generation technologies, while improving manufacturing platforms and ensuring product quality.

Topics covered will include, but are not limited to:

  • Optimizing bioprocesses
  • Representative scale-down models
  • Bioreactor engineering and design
  • Online monitoring
  • Strategies for scaling down
  • Protocols for scaling up
  • Effects of bioreactor design on cell harvest results
  • Dealing with shear stress
  • Bubble stress
  • Fluid dynamics
  • pH
  • Case studies
  • Reaching manufacturing scale
  • Sourcing raw materials
  • Managing processes
  • Disposable/single-use technologies – design and results
  • Cytotoxicity risks
  • Advantages versus disadvantages of disposables
  • Meeting budgets
