This course can count toward your Professional Certificate in Biomanufacturing Science.

Why should you attend?

To obtain knowledge of advanced manufacturing technologies to monitor and control biomanufacturing operations within a regulatory and industry 4.0 framework. Engage in pilot-scale laboratory experiences that incorporate different advanced sensors, data analytics, and control strategies. Learn how to handle, condition, and analyze multivariate data matrices using commercial software packages.

Attend and you will learn

  • The intention/expectations of the PAT initiative within a scientific and regulatory context
  • The differences between some of the most commonly used advanced bioprocess analyzers as well as their capabilities and limitations
  • How to set-up a process analyzer to monitor a bioreactor— using Raman spectroscopy, as an example
  • How to handle multivariate data as well as to generate data-driven descriptive/predictive process models
  • The concept of “soft sensing” and how to design a soft sensor using a machine-learning algorithm
  • Understand the concepts of process condition monitoring and predictive maintenance
  • The basics of modeling spectroscopic data and how to generate real-time bioreactor predictive models — using Raman spectroscopy, as an example
  • The different control strategies used during bio-reactions

Who should attend

Scientists, engineers or consultants working in the biomanufacturing industry with roles in:

  • Process development
  • Manufacturing sciences
  • R&D, and
  • Manufacturing/operations

Attend and you will receive

  • 21 hours of instruction
  • Morning coffee
  • Lunch
  • Afternoon beverage break
  • Certificate of attendance
