Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s 7th Annual
Bioproduction: Scale, Bioreactors & Disposables
Making It Work
Part of CHI's Ninth Annual The Bioprocessing Summit

August 23-24, 2017 | Westin Copley Place | Boston, MA


The 7th 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.
