    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
    Location:
    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.
