Fermentation Methods and Scale Up Strategies Workshop


This three-day course will emphasize the theoretical and practical aspects of laboratory microbial fermentation and scale-up. Participants will get hands-on experience setting up and monitoring fermenters, and conducting practical experiments, using the state-of-the-art equipment in the newly renovated CSL Behring Fermentation Facility.

Experiments will include the effects of medium components on cell density, mixing, aeration, and oxygen mass transfer in fermentation systems, analysis and control of key parameters for product optimization, and computer control of fermentation. 

Fermenter in the CSL Behring Fermentation Facility

The laboratory work will be supported by presentations and discussions on the fundamentals of microbial culture, aseptic techniques, kinetics of fermentation, recombinant microorganisms, scale-up strategies, downstream processing, and economic considerations. 

Approximately 70% of the time will be spent in lecture, and 30% will be in the laboratory.
