    Name: BTEC Short Courses: Hands-On cGMP Biomanufacturing Operations
    Date: March 9, 2020 - March 12, 2020
    Event Description:

    Why should you attend?

    To obtain a basic knowledge of biomanufacturing operations and how cGMP requirements are implemented at commercial scale. Engage in pilot-scale laboratory experiences that examine process utilities, media and solution preparation, bioreactor operation, centrifugation, chromatography, and tangential flow filtration in a simulated commercial cGMP (current Good Manufacturing Practice) facility.

    Attend and you will learn

    • How cGMP expectations are met in a biomanufacturing facility
    • How clean process utilities are produced
    • To prepare sterile fermentation media and solutions required for downstream processing
    • To clean, prepare, and operate bioreactors, centrifuges, chromatography systems, and tangential flow filtration systems
    • Basic principles underlying the unit operations for production of biologics
    • How to monitor and/or manipulate control parameters that result in a process that meets production expectations

    Who should attend

    Anyone interested in obtaining a basic knowledge of large-scale biomanufacturing operations and applying that knowledge in a simulated cGMP environment, such as the following:

    • New biomanufacturing employees, including scientists and engineers
    • Biomanufacturing support personnel who may not be directly involved with the process they support
    • Vendors who supply the biomanufacturing industry with equipment and components
    • Incumbent workers looking to enter the biomanufacturing industry

    Attend and you will receive

    • 30 hours of instruction (3.0 Continuing Education Units)
    • Notebook containing all course lecture and lab materials
    • Morning coffee
    • Lunch
    • Afternoon beverage break
    • Certificate of attendance
    All courses are offered on site at BTEC, other than online courses. The Golden LEAF BTEC building is located at 850 Oval Drive on NC State University's Centennial Campus.
