Cambridge Healthtech Institute ’s 2nd Annual

Bioproduction: Scale, Bioreactors & Disposables

Making It Work

20-21 March 2019


Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s Bioproduction conference reviews the finesse required to manufacture biologics including scale-down models, scaling up production, engineering bioreactors, single-use systems, and ensuring quality, within the context of increasing productivity, while ensuring safety and achieving reduced costs. A holistic review of bioprocessing will be explored, as well as practical details, such as monitoring and analyzing processes, and examining in detail how bioreactors process cells and how to keep those cells happy. The conference will address robust production processes and next-generation technologies, while improving manufacturing platforms and ensuring product quality.


Coverage will include, but is not limited to:


  • Optimising bioprocesses
  • Representative scale-down models
  • Bioreactor engineering and design
  • Online monitoring
  • Strategies for scaling down
  • Protocols for scaling up
  • Effects of bioreactor design on cell harvest results
  • Dealing with shear stress
  • Bubble stress
  • Fluid dynamics
  • pH
  • Case Studies
  • Reaching manufacturing scale
  • Sourcing raw materials
  • Managing processes
  • Disposable/Single-Use Technologies – design and results
  • Cytotoxicity risks
  • Advantages versus Disadvantages of Disposables
  • Bottom-line costs
  • Productivity  
  • Managing risk
  • Ensuring safety
