Tuesday 19 March & Wednesday 20 March

Day 1: 08:25 - 17:30 | Day 2: 8:30 - 12:20

TS1: Design of Experiments for Bioprocess Analysis

The aim of this training seminar is to provide the attendees with an introduction to the Design of Experiments (DoE) methods applied to analysis and optimization of bioprocesses. It focuses on the application of DoE methods using lectures, JMP statistical software (SAS Institute, NC) and case studies. The case studies, which provide real data, focus on microbial fermentation, chromatography and pharmaceutical product formulation. Attendees will receive a practical overview of the following topics: basic statistical concepts for DoE; how to use factorial, fractional factorial, and response surface designs for the characterization and optimization of bioprocesses; how to interpret the output of experimental design software (normal probability, interaction and contour plots or estimated coefficients tables for factorial or surface response models).

TS2: Intro to Bioprocessing

CHI’s Introduction to Bioprocessing training seminar provides a comprehensive, yet technical, review of the critical steps needed to produce today’s complex biopharmaceuticals, from early development through commercial. Whether you are new to the bioprocessing or looking for a recap, the 1.5-day seminar will take you through the critical steps of bioprocessing - from upstream to downstream processing, cell line development to CMC, clinical to commercial bioproduction. The course also examines topical subjects such as continuous processing, facility considerations and process validation.

Training Seminar Information

Each CHI Training Seminar offers 1.5 days of instruction with start and stop times for each day shown above and on the Event-at-a-Glance published in the onsite Program & Event Guide. Training Seminars will include morning and afternoon refreshment breaks, as applicable, and lunch will be provided to all registered attendees on the full day of the class.

Each person registered specifically for the Training Seminar will be provided with a hard copy handbook for the seminar in which they are registered. A limited number of additional handbooks will be available for other delegates who wish to attend the seminar, but after these have been distributed, no additional books will be available.

Though CHI encourages track hopping between conference programs, we ask that Training Seminars not be disturbed once they have begun. In the interest of maintaining the highest quality learning environment for Training Seminar attendees, and because seminars are conducted differently than conference programming, we ask that attendees commit to attending the entire program, and not engage in track hopping, as to not disturb the hands-on style instruction being offered to the other participants.
