Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s 5th Annual
Bioproduction: Scale, Bioreactors & Disposables
Making It Work
August 5-6, 2015
Part of CHI's 7th Annual The Bioprocessing Summit

August 3-7, 2015 | Westin Copley Place Hotel | Boston, Massachusetts


This meeting will look at the bigger picture of bioprocessing while exploring the details of optimizing processes, both from a practical and an engineering viewpoint, particularly bioreactor engineering. Creating models for scaling down and scaling up as well as disposables will also be discussed, as will monitoring and analyzing processes in order to reach optimal conditions and productivity. Examining how bioreactors process cells will be addressed, from small operational details to large-scale bioproduction.

Proposed presentations should focus on case studies, modeling strategies and bioreactor designs for optimizing 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 January 30, 2015. 

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.
