Biomanufacturing Primer

Biomanufacturing Primer introduces the ever-evolving world of biomanufacturing. It gives a scientific overview of essential topics such as the intricacies driving cell lines, cell banks, upstream/downstream bioprocessing, and the latest advancements in this dynamic field. The class compares the fascinating differences between bacterial and mammalian cell lines and explains which drug products each can and cannot produce. The concept of cell banks, both master and working cell banks, and their critical manufacturing roles are explained in detail. This primer outlines the art of upstream bioprocessing (optimizing cell growth and scale-up) and downstream bioprocessing (harvesting and purifying protein drug products). The class ends by highlighting incredible advancements such as continuous bioprocessing, single-use technologies, and critical quality attributes. Register today for this informative class and gain a foundational understanding of biomanufacturing!
