The Bioprocessing Summit
The Bioprocessing Summit

Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s 6th Annual
Bioproduction: Scale, Bioreactors & Disposables
Making It Work
Part of CHI's 8th Annual The Bioprocessing Summit

August 17-18, 2016 | Westin Boston Waterfront | Boston, Massachusetts


This 6th annual “Bioproduction” conference will examine the elements of producing biologics, including creating scale-down models, scaling up production, engineering bioreactors, single-use systems, and ensuring quality within the context of increasing productivity. A holistic examination 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 meeting will again feature a session exploring the design and use of scale-down models, as well as a session addressing the challenges of scaling up production.

Topics may 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
  • Advantages versus disadvantages of disposables
  • Bottom-line costs

Bioproduction and Modeling experts who wish to present their knowledge and expertise to their colleagues are asked to click here to submit an abstract. Remember to specify the conference that you are interested in and please provide your full contact information.

Deadline for submission is February 15, 2016.


All proposals are subject to review by the Scientific Advisory Committee to ensure the highest quality of the conference program. Please note that due to limited speaking slots, preference is given to pharmaceutical and biotech companies, regulators and those from academia. Additionally, vendors/consultants who provide products and services to these biopharmaceutical companies are offered opportunities for podium presentation slots based on a variety of Corporate Sponsorships.
