UTS NIBRT: Introduction to Bioprocessing

The advancement of biotechnology has facilitated the innovation of bio-therapeutics addressing current and emerging health concerns. Gain a comprehensive introduction to key principles and techniques fundamental to bioprocessing, exploring the cutting-edge applications of single-use technology in biopharmaceutical manufacturing.

About this course

This one-day course featuring National Institute for Bioprocessing Research and Training (NIBRT) curriculum introduces key processing principles and techniques of the biopharmaceutical industry to participants from a non-biopharma background.

This course is designed to expand participants’ knowledge and understanding of foundational aspects of bioprocessing including biopharmaceutical manufacturing, upstream and downstream processes, cleanroom operations, and the emerging trend of single-use technologies.

Course structure

The production of biopharmaceuticals is underpinned by key bioprocessing practices which use living cells to obtain a desired product. The design and modification of the bioprocess enables the industrial production of an array of biopharmaceuticals.

This one day course delivers the NIBRT’s industry training curriculum to provide participants from a non-biopharma background a solid introduction to key principles and techniques in bioprocessing.

In this course, participants will gain comprehensive knowledge on biopharmaceutical manufacturing, including an introduction to key upstream and downstream processes. You will also learn the importance of cleanroom operations in a GMP-lite environment, and understand how single-use technologies are facilitating competitive and economical solutions to bioprocessing.
