Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s 9th Annual

Bioproduction: Scale, Bioreactors & Disposables

Making It Work

August  14-15 , 2019


Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s “Bioproduction” conference reviews the finesse required to manufacture biologics including scale-down models, scaling up production, engineering bioreactors, single-use systems, and ensuring quality within the context of increasing productivity; while ensuring safety and achieving reduced costs.  A holistic review of bioprocessing will be explored, as well as practical details, such as monitoring and analyzing processes, and examining in detail how bioreactors process cells and how to keep those cells happy.  The conference will address robust production processes and next-generation technologies, while improving manufacturing platforms and ensuring product quality.

Topics 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
  • Reaching manufacturing scale
  • Effects of bioreactor design on cell harvest results
  • Managing processes
  • Disposable/single-use technologies – design and results
  • Integrating disposables into facilities
  • Advantages versus disadvantages of disposables
  • Data generation & analysis
  • Miniature bioreactors
  • Dealing with shear stress
  • Bubble stress
  • Fluid dynamics
  • pH
  • Sourcing raw materials
  • Bottom-line costs
  • Productivity 
  • Cytotoxicity risks
  • Managing risk
  • Ensuring safety 
  • Case studies
