Process Control and Cultivation under GMP
Cultivation in bioreactors is one of the main upstream processes in pharmaceutical production. It is important to have a clear understanding of the steps during the cultivation process, control loop determination with different sensors and actuators, sterilization and setting up a bioreactor.
Production of pharmaceuticals in microorganisms or mammalian cells requires a thorough preparation such as organism selection, growing conditions, characteristics of the active molecule etc. For the cultivation process, all the parameters should be set beforehand and are controlled during the process based on your production method.
This course offers the fundamentals of the cultivation process in a bioreactor. Trainees will gain insight into bioreactors and cultivation processes. They will also gain first-hand experience on the initiation of cultivation and process control, applicable in a GMP environment.
