Single-use technology is widely used within the biopharmaceutical industry and has quickly become a mainstay within the sector as it facilitates faster, secure, and economical biologics production.
This three-day course combines the National Institute for Bioprocessing Research and Training (NIBRT) curriculum with industry-focused practical training from UTS to provide a holistic introduction to upstream operations, with a focus on single-use technology.
You will gain hands-on practical experience operating both small scale and large scale single-use bioreactors in a GMP-Lite environment.
This three-day course incorporates both theory and a practical learning experience by combining the NIBRT industry training curriculum with hands-on, practical sessions from UTS.
You will gain a foundation knowledge of key upstream operations, highlighting the application of single-use technologies in upstream processing. Engage in hands-on practical experiences using aseptic connections, WAVE bioreactor systems, and a traditional upright 200L single-use bioreactor. You will also have the opportunity to prepare and run designed pilot-scale upstream protocols in a GMP-Lite cleanroom environment.
A written assessment will be conducted at the end of the course to certify proficiency in the theory and practical content which has been covered.
